Executive Summary

London Luton Airport is one of the UK's busiest airports, handling more than 10 million passengers and 38,000 tonnes of freight per year. Luton Airport depends on its network for communications across the entire airport, from flight arrival and departure information feeds and baggage reclaim to the airport concessions such as catering and retail outlets. Thus, network up-time and resilience are absolute priorities to ensure business continuity and avoid financial penalties. Luton Airport's 3Com network is based around four 3Com Switch 8800s at the core, with 40 3Com Switch 5500s at the aggregation layer. 3Com Switch 8800s were selected because their modular redundancy provides the highest possible network uptime, and 3Com Switch 5500s were chosen for their high port density, which provides the highest connectivity.
