Connect your global fleet
Data is at the core of business decisions, and airlines need to make informed decisions quickly to maintain their operations. Collecting data from across the fleet of planes and support equipment requires, scale, real-time delivery, and a vast, geographically dispersed edge cloud network.
Keep your entire fleet connected, plan ahead for scale.
Many cloud platforms limit you to 500,000 clients. Akamai provides a massive number of clients, allowing you to transmit messages across your fleet of planes and ground equipment without concern. Other edge cloud platforms stop short at 100,000 clients.
Need more than 100 topics per plane?
Topic limits will force airlines to choose which planes and equipment to incorporate into their connected device messaging programs. Akamai has a massive number of topics, allowing you to extend innovation throughout your fleet.
Message retention limits that work for all types of equipment
Airline equipment can sometimes remain idle. Messages need to be retained within the system to ensure they are delivered when the equipment is engaged. Akamai retains messages for seven days, allowing all equipment to receive the necessary messages to stay operational.
Do you need to connect new clients fast?
Other message services can take up to 2.5 hours to connect 5 million clients. Akamai has shown it can connect 5 million in just a few seconds. With on-time arrival a key indicator, every second counts.
Is it a problem if 95% of your sensors don’t get a message when sent?
Messages per second limits can cause delivery failure and impact services, such as infotainment, flight status, and baggage delivery. With a massive number of connections per second, not only is Akamai’s approach designed to connect your entire fleet but also to send all the necessary messages to maintain your latest technology.
