Network of more than 700 miles of fiber-optic cables installed Abu Dhabi Airport

Airport operator Abu Dhabi Airports has completed the installation of a new airport-wide fiber-optic network (AWFON) at Abu Dhabi International Airport in the UAE.

The AWFON project is one of the biggest infrastructure projects to be undertaken by the operator this year and connects the entire campus via a reliable backbone network.

The project entailed laying 1,233km (766 miles) of fiber cables underground, close to a round trip between Abu Dhabi and Riyadh in Saudi Arabia. Planning for the project started in March 2015.

Abdul Majeed Al Khoori, acting CEO, said, “Delivering this project was key to Abu Dhabi Airports as it sets the base for efficient, high quality and high speed backbone network solutions adhering to best international standards.

“The delivery of this project was challenging due to its scope and complexity which involved multiple teams from several contractors, stakeholders and service providers.

“I would like to thank our technology project team and our partners for their dedication and close coordination that made this milestone achievable.”
