A major Airport recently conducted a complete Wi-Fi redesign in several terminals, with the intent of increasing overall speed and capacity.

Airport: BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) Blue-Dot Wayfinding (2015-2016)
BLE is a relatively new technology that allows blue-dot turn-by- turn wayfinding indoors. It uses small RF emitters that “ping” a signal many times a second. Properly placed within a large facility, a mobile device can be loaded with an app that will triangulate the strength of all visible beacons in comparison to their mapped position in regards to GPS, and can position the user as he moves through the facility.
For the Airport: Created a test run of such a service, using Aruba beacons, as well as the supporting app built with Meridian. Used “push notifications”, which automatically sends a coupon or a notification to the app user when in proximity to the beacon.
