Dubai Airports upgrade to advanced cloud-based FIDS solution along with SoC technology

Dubai Airports has upgraded from a fragmented system to an advanced cloud-based Flight Information Display solution along with System on Chip (SoC) display technology at Dubai International (DXB) and Dubai World Central (DWC) airports. The upgrade is made in partnership with Samsung Electronics and AirportLabs and is the first in the region. As part of the project, a total of 2700 display screens were replaced across Terminal 3, Concourses A, B and C. By offering a single, dedicated platform for cloud-based content management, FIDS solution boosts customer service with timely, efficient and visually impactful information delivery.

The upgrade provides flexible, environmentally-sound and cost-effective operations. The upgraded system with Samsung’s SoC based displays enables Dubai Airports team to operate its new VisionAir FIDS software without external PCs, which greatly reduces both the airport’s electrical footprint and operational costs. This new display system is expected to go a long way in helping the authority deliver a smooth experience consistently for the millions of customers that pass through these airports each year.
