NEC streamlines air travel with Red Hat OpenShift platform

Red Hat, Inc., a North Carolina-based provider of open source solutions, has announced that NEC Corporation has used Red Hat OpenShift as the foundation for Japan´s Narita International Airport´s new One ID check-in-to-boarding experience, the company said.

One ID covers the entire passenger experience within an airport, from check-in to boarding, and uses Red Hat OpenShift to provide the massive scale and flexibility required to handle peak passenger volume at Narita.

The enterprise Kubernetes platform underpins the new system.

Following the introduction of One ID at Narita Airport, NEC aims to continue rolling out advanced solutions in cooperation with domestic and international airports throughout the world.
