The world's leading provider of modern communications and IT solutions for the air transport industry, SITA, is responsible at Frankfurt airport for large parts of the infrastructure, including the check-in counters and gates, where workstations, monitors and peripherals are due to be replaced after six years in operation. The hardware had to meet certain specifications as regards to certification, ventilation, connectivity and performance.
Having had 25 years of successful cooperation, SITA commissioned its IT partner Fujitsu for the renewal of the front-end hardware at the check-in counters and gates. Fujitsu supplied more than 1,000 top-quality workstations as well as monitors, keyboards and mice. The workstations are certified according to the CUTE (Common Use Terminal Equipment) standards,which are required for use in the air transport industry.
