Antaira Managed Switches Bring Advanced Connectivity to Airport’s Anti-Drone System

Antaira Technologies recently partnered with a Utah-based airspace security and defense company to help implement a digital 3D protective shield to counter illegal entry by drones into a restricted airfield. Because connectivity was critical to the system’s responsiveness, Antaira LMX-1202G-SFP-T Gigabit-managed Ethernet switches were deployed inside multiple tall pillars surrounding the protected airspace. The switches link together dozens of IP video surveillance cameras, computers, and drone detection radar systems to the airport’s central control station.
