Ericsson Will Deploy Private Mobile Network at Paris Airports

Ericsson has been selected by Groupe ADP, its subsidiary Hub One and Air France to deploy a private mobile network covering Charles de Gaulle, Orly and Le Bourget airports in Paris. The 4/5G network will serve a professional ecosystem of more than 120,000 people who work at the three Paris airports every day, across about 1,000 companies of differing sizes and sectors.

Hub One will manage and set up the network on behalf of Groupe ADP and Air France. Ericsson’s technology will enable Hub One to comply with the new security obligations of France’s National Agency for Security of Information Systems. The mobile network will be effective across all outdoor spaces at the airports by the end of 2020 and indoors across all public and reserved areas for professionals working at the terminals by the end of 2021.

“Ericsson is a major player recognized for its expertise in telecommunications, with which we have been collaborating for several years. It seemed natural to us to call on Ericsson and take advantage of the technological innovation capabilities of a leading provider of 5G networks with more than 45 live mobile networks already deployed worldwide,” said Guillaume de Lavallade, CEO of Hub One.

“Anyone who has ever been to an airport knows that security, reliability and speed are key to ensure a good travel experience. The digital transformation of airports represents a big opportunity and private 5G networks will enable and accelerate this transformation. We are pleased to future-proof Paris airports with 5G ready networks delivering fast, secure and reliable wireless internet,” said Åsa Tamsons, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Area Technologies and New Businesses at Ericsson.

Groupe ADP develops and manages airports, including Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly and Paris-Le Bourget. In 2019, more than 108 million passengers passed through Paris Aéroport. More than 2.2 million metric tons of freight and mail were processed via Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports.
