  • 3 Introduction - Experimentation through video

    COM-V015244_4GLTE_VAST BQHD.mp4
  • Objectives

    Prepare in the medium term the migration of Tetra and WIFI network on LTE Pro network, for professional usage, on our major Airline Hubs (Roissy CDG & Orly).

    Resources Temporary Allocation by French Regulation authority (ARCEP) of 20 MHz in Frequency

    Range 2.6 GHz since November 1st of 2016. Partnership with Telecom suppliers Operational implementation for our businesses

    Internal Mobilisation of businesses, IT Radio Experts, Security, Deployment, Development, Network, Communication etc.

    4 Objectives and resources

  • Needs and Issues

    Better operational performance required by our businesses Obsolescence of our Tetra radio network (20 000 communications per day). WiFi no more appropriate (technical aspect, financials) Significant increase of video usage and digitizing of our operational businesses

    Control of our critical communications in CDG & ORY internally kept Engineering control (skills) Exploitation control (operations) Costs management Infrastructure flexibility in order to answer current and future operational usage : (voice and data, video, IOT, 5G)

    LTE Pro Network implementation : project launched by Air France as well as others companies

    AGURRE Association created since 2012. Implementation of action plan to address usage evolution and to obtain frequency resources Discussions with Public Authorities (Ministry of Interior, ARCEP, ANFR, Ministry of Economy)

  • high quality of reception

    within covered area

    Not necessary to

    connect again after a

    network disconnection

    less use of battery on

    tablets (Aircraft engineering

    & maintenance)

    Tablets much less heat

    cockpit and cabin connectivity OK

    Connectivity OK

    In the passenger

    boarding bridge

    successful test either with IPAD and Scanners (ground services)

    Luggage application :

    better performance

    compared to WIFI and

    public network connection

    Form factor

    (device + 4G key) not

    deployable as it is

    First feedback

  • MCPTT Tests

    Tests in Progress

    Extension (6 months + 6 months) of frequency allocation by Arcep

    (april 18 to october 18)

    Real Life situation usage by AF E&M

    Tetra/LTE interconnection

    7

    Mixed SIM Cards to test To be able to connect at the end the

    onboard devices (plane, crew t ablets) on private network in Roissy but on public network in the other airports
