APRON and GATE related applications, products – or in combination solutions – have conventionally been installed in relatively encapsulated environments. The solution got defined, often tailored for a specific airport under the “we are different” paradigm, installed and … frozen. Sticking to the encapsulated system environment, this has not necessarily been a “worst choice”-scenario. Many solutions are running this way for more than 15 years, a long time out of the books but still providing 100% performance.
