SITA Encourages Regional Airports to Embrace Cloud, Mobile Technologies

MobileIDWorld

SITA is warning that regional airports should be prepared to deal with a massive influx of traffic in the wake of COVID-19. The company noted that many people moved away from major urban centers (and toward less populated regional ones) as remote work arrangements became more acceptable during the pandemic, and domestic travel is also expected to increase as lockdowns lift in many countries. Many people are eager for a vacation after a year spent at home, and it is easier to go somewhere local (and somewhere with no entry requirements) than it is to deal with complex and unpredictable international health restrictions.

Starlink is a new satellite ISP that seeks to erase the often negative connotations of satellite internet and do so almost anywhere you can set up a small dish aimed at the sky. T-Mobile Home Internet is a 5G-based service providing broadband to the premise, not to the mobile devices that T-Mobile is known for. Each service creates Wi-Fi in your home so you don’t really have to care if it its powered by satellite or a 5G cellular network.
