Solace supports the Hong Kong Airport Authority with smart airport initiatives

Solace has announced the Airport Authority Hong Kong has selected it to develop the Internet of Things (IoT) platform for Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), the company said.

The platform can utilize real-time data to enhance airport operations efficiency and passenger experience.

The adoption of Solace´s event broker technology has enabled critical real-time data flow between the airport´s connected devices and vehicles, preparing HKIA for the full integration of its physical and digital operations.

With Solace´s technology, HKIA will optimize data from IoT devices to support initiatives such as real-time equipment location tracking, and predictive maintenance on assets and buildings for different airport business units. By enabling the collection, filtration, and flow of real-time information between IoT devices and back-end systems, Solace will help HKIA manage assets more effectively, improving airport operation efficiency and enhancing passenger services.

Hong Kong International Airport is an international and regional aviation hub connecting to 220 destinations around the world, including 50 mainland cities. In 2019, HKIA handled 71.5 million passengers.

Solace is an enabler of real-time event-driven data streaming that helps large enterprises by giving them everything they need to make their business operations and customer interactions event-driven.
