British Airways deploys Motorola Solutions Wave.
There were several driving factors for our client British Airways to commence this project. Firstly, BA needed to relocate operations from its facility in the Compass Centre to its Waterside headquarters and Terminal 5. Secondly, the airline needed to reduce the total cost of ownership of voice, video and data services in use. Finally, British Airways wanted a way to manage communication services with ease.
In support of its technology strategy to embrace IP, British Airways had already deployed a CCCM IP telephony solution operating on a converged IP network. With IP convergence enabling voice and data packets to be transported on a single network infrastructure, BA was now in a position to also transfer its ground-to- air communications onto its IP network.
To improve its communications services, they selected an on-premise, fully managed and maintained solution from Radiocoms Systems Ltd. The solution features Motorola Solutions WAVE 5000 operating on British Airways’ existing converged IP network. Comprised of a number of elements, the WAVE 5K solution deployed included clients on standard desktop PCs, and bespoke server infrastructure.
