PSI subsidiary PSI Logistics GmbH has successfully replaced the entire server hardware for the baggage handling system for the Flughafen Wien AG, operator of the Austrian capital’s airport.
Contracted in January 2016, this replacement modernises the existing IT system with failsafe, redundant components in a new, virtual-server structure. This modernisation project – concluded at the beginning of June – establishes the basis for a subsequent retrofitting programme with which the baggage control system in Vienna will be updated with state-of-the-art technology.
The new server infrastructure was designed by PSI Logistics to readily integrate additional IT systems, for instance, for process control and visualisation, as the system is expanded. The Vienna Airport will continue to rely on the established and proven PSIairport/BHS baggage handling system for the controlling and sorting equipment at the airport.
With about 22.75 million passengers in 2015, Vienna Airport is one of the most important hubs and destinations in Middle and Eastern Europe.
