A global data network for Lufthansa Passenger Airlines


Lufthansa Systems today announced that Lufthansa Passenger Airlines has renewed its contract for the operation of its global wide area network (WAN) for another five years. The WAN links around 500 Lufthansa offices in cities and airports in over 100 countries around the world. Lufthansa Systems operates the WAN with its SkyConnect solution, which is tailored to the high availability and security requirements of the airline industry. 
SkyConnect from Lufthansa Systems ensures that airlines have access to networks optimized for their business processes. Among other things, the network is designed for a company’s maximum necessary capacity in order to cover peaks in demand. SkyConnect is based on a multi-provider and multi-technology approach which combines capacities from different telecommunications providers to form a virtual network (best-of-breed approach). By taking advantage of the individual providers’ local strengths, Lufthansa Systems can offer its customers a flexible, high-availability data network. The various sites are equipped with powerful and secure links to the enterprise network and major reservation systems. Furthermore, as a global IT provider, Lufthansa Systems is able to negotiate very favorable conditions with regional providers. Airlines can thus reduce their costs significantly with SkyConnect.  
“This combination of technical stability and provider neutrality ensures a high level of operational reliability for our network. At the same time, we achieve significant cost savings while improving performance considerably,” said Dr. Christoph Klingenberg, Chief Information Officer at Lufthansa Passenger Airlines.  
The WAN will soon include features like dedicated firewall and IPS systems to meet the growing security requirements of Lufthansa Passenger Airlines. The network is operated in the Lufthansa Systems data centers in Kelsterbach, Dallas and Singapore, ensuring optimal data routing and shorter response times. This results in improved performance for users.  
“We look forward to continuing our trusting partnership with Lufthansa Passenger Airlines," said Claus Rohde, Senior Vice President Key Account Management Lufthansa Passenger Airlines at Lufthansa Systems. “This project clearly demonstrates the advantages that can be achieved through close cooperation between a customer and an IT service provider. Lufthansa Passenger Airlines will be using a communications infrastructure that is tailored precisely to the company’s needs, operates cost-efficiently and forms the ideal basis for future development.”
