NCR Corporation announced today it has been awarded the contract to provide the comprehensive networking and computing infrastructure, next-generation web check-in, information kiosks and unified telephony for the new Muscat International and Salalah Airports currently under development in the Sultanate of Oman. The contract, NCR’s largest in the Middle East, was awarded by Ultra Electronics Ithra.
“The network and compute infrastructure is the backbone of Ultra’s work as a master systems integrator – I have no doubt that NCR will deliver state-of-the-art IT infrastructure in support of our delivery of world-class airport systems,” said Ultra Electronics Ithra Programme Director Grant Levy.
Work has already begun on the two new terminals and is scheduled to be completed in 2014.
Under terms of the contract, NCR will design, install, test and manage voice, data and wireless infrastructure; networks; archiving and storage solutions; compute infrastructure; web check-in solutions; and airport wayfinding solutions.
NCR’s technology solutions and services will ensure maximum reliability, efficiency and systems uptimes of the IT infrastructure at the airports, making airport operations easier and helping to create exceptional travel experiences for passengers departing from, arriving at and connecting through the terminals.
The Middle East continues to grow as a destination for business and leisure travel and freight shipping. The International Air Transport Association projects that from 2012 to 2016, the Middle East will have the third fastest air passenger growth rate in the world at 6.6%. Meanwhile, air freight demand will grow at 4.9%, the strongest growth among the regions of the globe. To meet this growth, Gulf countries like Oman are spending billions on airport expansion and development. As a result, the Middle East presents major opportunities for travel and travel-related companies.
“There is tremendous opportunity for NCR to facilitate this anticipated growth in airport construction, leveraging our core competencies, self-service expertise and comprehensive services network to help airports in the region design and deliver an exceptional passenger experience,” said NCR Travel Vice President and General Manager Tyler Craig. “NCR is making everyday easier for airport managers and travelers by transforming the traveler experience at all points throughout the journey.”
