Purdue University Airport, in collaboration with industry partners Ericsson and Saab, has created a unique 5G network that will serve as a “Lab to Life” proving ground for academics, researchers and business to develop commercial solutions that can be replicated to improve operations and security at airports of all sizes.
Digitalization at airports requires stable, secure, high-performing wireless networking
Ericsson, one of the leading providers of information and communication technology to service providers across the globe, will contribute a private 5G network for the Purdue Research Foundation to operate at the Purdue University Airport (LAF).
Saab will invest in this project by installing Aerobahn™, a platform that unlocks airport efficiency for airlines and ramp management; SAFE Event Management platforms, a security platform used in airport operation centers; and deploying ADS-B sensors to track aircraft.
Purdue will provide use of its airport as well as the “Lab to Life” testbed established throughout Discovery Park District at Purdue, a 400-acre, mixed-use development adjacent to the university’s campus.
