Airports, train depots, and bus stations are important
infrastructure components of any city. These transportation
hubs are vital elements for social and economic development
both locally and regionally.
To keep cargo and passengers moving safely and on time,
information systems must be efficient and reliable, and
communications must work across all devices. Today, airport
passengers want to receive real-time and accurate information
about flight departures and arrivals on their smartphones.
Workers at shipping ports and airports use their mobile devices
to easily identify containers and move cargoes faster to their
final destinations, improving supply-chain efficiency and making
a city much more competitive in a globalized world. By taking
advantage of these technologies to provide better services to
passengers and businesses, cities can modernize and simplify
travel and trade, thereby supporting the growth of local
economies and promoting quality of life for their citizens.
Microsoft, together with its different partners around the
world, has created a portfolio of solutions to help city
governments respond to the complex needs and requirements from
airport, railway, and port operations.
