Trials

Trial in MTL (Jan 2011 - Present)

Trials in Modern Terminal Limited (MTL) were conducted. Lavinet has been enhanced with more specific requirements from the terminal industrial setting.

Trial in HAECO (Sep - Nov 2010)

We successfully conducted a full feasibility study in Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (HAECO). The overall feedback was that the wireless coverage and throughput had significantly improved with Lavinet and smart APs on the ground and inside airplanes. HAECO applications could run much faster and smoother under the new infrastructure.

Prove of Concept Demo in HAECO (Nov 2009)

In the one week of concept proving, we successfully demonstrated the usefulness of Lavinet to Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (HAECO). We also obtained the first hand industrial practical information for improving our research project.

In the picture:
Top: Installed a Lavinet node on top of the dock office to Wi-Fi the entire dock office and    surrounding area.
Bottom: Above Hanger 3, over seeing the terminal buildings.

 

Demo in Boeing Seattle (Dec 2008)

We were invited by Boeing to setup a demo of wireless mesh network for the airport operation support. The demo was very successful and Boeing becomes the major industrial sponsor for the following Lavinet project.
