EDITOR’S NOTE: This post is a continuation of Brendan’s from Tuesday on my observations from the Geneva Airport Passenger Terminal Expo.
One of the things that strikes me here at the Air Passenger Expo is the proliferation of companies offering some type of passenger flow monitoring solutions. These vary from small startups to large players, and the offerings are a mixture of many technologies: video, cameras, bluetooth, and various types of sensors. The problem most are solving is point-based monitoring, such as how many passengers in the line, how many people are entering, or what is the current wait time in security – all very valuable point information for the Airports to make sure they’re staffed properly and passengers have the best experience.

Last week we kicked off the first webinar of a new 5-part Cisco Unified Access webinar series. Many of you joined the event and I was very happy to see your questions and discussions during the broadcast. The event was a high level overview of industry challenges with BYOD, mobility and the Internet of Everything, as well as how Cisco Unified Access can help address these challenges with the One Policy, One Management, One Network approach.
Next week on Wednesday April 17, we will have the 2nd live broadcast of the Cisco Unified Access webinar series. We will have excellent technical content to dig deeper into the subject of “One Network”, specifically converged wired and wireless access (CLICK HERE TO REGISTER) and we will be covering a lot of technical topics such as your above questions. See more a the Borderless Blog.

Rogue access points and unauthorized access, DDoS or penetration attacks, evil twin attacks – all mobile security issues that can keep you awake at night. But do you know the difference between compliance and enterprise security? Being compliant is not synonymous with being secure, that’s why our webcast on April 16, is focused on how to bridge the gap between PCI compliance and security to minimize the impact of an attack.

I’m standing here today in Geneva, at the annual Airport Passenger Terminal Expo, where Cisco and SITA are presenting our joint solution for WiFi-based location-based services in airports. This solution enables deep insights and understanding of how passengers use and move throughout their arrival or departure journey.
The event kicked off this morning with a series of keynotes, and already on the exhibition floor I’ve been talking to a lot of airport leaders who are interested in the joint Cisco/SITA solution and how this really is starting to enable a better travelling experience and more efficient airport.
