The integrated software solutions specialist, FNT, has won a contract from Norman Y Mineta San José International Airport (IATA: SJC) to implement its FNT Command system to document and manage its network infrastructure.

SJC recognised the need to upgrade its IT infrastructure in order to support increased airport traffic and to meet the demands of digitally focused travellers. As a result, SJC is implementing software-defined-access and application-centric infrastructure for its future enterprise network. The first step in the transformation process will be a complete re-cabling and network replacement. FNT Command will manage the airport network assets.

Judy Ross, SJC’s assistant director of aviation, said: “FNT Command will be used to document and manage all of our network assets; giving us the ability to better support our brand-new network.”

Sean Graham, general manager, Americas, of FNT Software added: “To remain successful in the digital age of travel, IT managers must change their mindset. Airports are no longer just facilities and runways – they are a provider of modern services and must cater to digital passengers with the utmost flexibility.”
