Modern airports are bustling centers of communications, with an increasing number of people using mobile devices on the go and expecting anytime, anywhere connectivity. Further taxing wireless networks are airport facilities workers and public safety activities. What makes that communication so challenging is the airport’s large coverage area and high-capacity requirements. Such issues make providing adequate coverage and capacity for all users an elusive goal. That’s exactly the challenge YYC Calgary International Airport faced when it began building its new international terminal. The airport had virtually no commercial or public safety coverage from the macro, and as a result, the new international terminal faced both coverage and capacity issues.
