Newark International Airport wired for wireless data

May 22, 2001 Newark International Airport is the first of the New York-area airports to be wired with an advanced cabling installation that allows passengers for the first time to receive wireless data and enhanced cellular communication in all passenger terminals.

May 22, 2001 The Network Systems & Services (NS&S) Division of ITT Industries has announced that Newark International Airport is the first of the New York-area airports to be wired with an advanced cabling installation that allows passengers for the first time to receive wireless data and enhanced cellular communication in all passenger terminals.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey selected the shielded cabling solution of ITT Industries NS&S because it addressed the challenging environmental problems found in airports and due to NS&S's high level of service and support. Similar installations are currently underway at the area's LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy Airports, and discussions are being held about wiring other New York City transportation facilities, such as bus terminals and subways.
