Fujitsu Network Communications Inc., a supplier of IT and wireline/wireless networking solutions, announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), the world's fifth busiest airport, has deployed Fujitsu FLASHWAVE 4000 Multiservice Provisioning Platforms (MSPPs) and the NETSMART 1500 Element Management System (EMS) to modernize and add reliability to their intra-airport communications network. The upgraded network will support mission-critical data communications associated with the radar system and air traffic control tower. This upgrade will also increase the security and reliability of FAA air traffic control communications at LAX while making airport operations much more efficient.

The upgraded airport communications network is carrying short- and long-range radar system data, weather condition information, Instrument Landing System (ILS) approach data between runways and the air traffic control tower, and private voice and data communications to allow for enhanced air traffic management.
