The Netherlands’ Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has completed the deployment of its own network for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

All public areas of the airport, including the arrival and departure halls, lounges, piers and Schiphol Plaza, will be covered by the IoT network.

It will also offer coverage in non-public areas such as the baggage basements and aprons.

Compared to Wi-Fi, the network offers better range and lower power consumption. It is specifically designed to connect with smart sensors and transfer data over long distances.
