Internal Building Distributed Antenna System goes live at LHR T2

affini Technology, a specialist in connecting technology, has designed a common infrastructure for mobile, Wi-Fi and push-to-talk radio services at Heathrow Terminal 2, the Queen’s Terminal, which opens on 4th June 2014.

affini serves twenty UK airport operators and has been delivering radio, wireless, mobile and cellular communications and IT services at London Heathrow for more than fifteen years. The company has more than twenty years’ experience in delivering end-to-end critical and real-time, commercial wireless and ICT solutions to the UK’s largest organisations.

Working alongside the UK’s largest consultant engineer, WS Atkins, affini was awarded the contract for the design of the Internal Building Distributed Antenna System (IBDAS) for T2. The IBDAS provides a common platform that allows all radio and cellular operators to provide coverage throughout the terminal.

affini tested and measured signal coverage and used CAD and mathematical models to provide reliable, repeatable test data, providing the most realistic representation of how the integrated communications system will work in a live environment. To support future communications requirements, affini has also undertaken all of the installation design and commissioning for the airport’s own 4G/LTE infrastructure.

Commenting on the Heathrow IBDAS, Jason Colombo, affini CEO said, “Heathrow is one of the busiest airports in the world and T2 is a flagship terminal for the UK. The airport provides the first impression of this country and more than 90 million passengers are expected to use its terminals in the next year alone. It is vital that the travelling public, operational staff and retailers are provided with a reliable connection to support both personal and business-critical communications, now and in the future.”
