FRANKFURT, Germany, December 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
In November 2012, Fraport AG welcomed about 4.2 million passengers at its Frankfurt Airport (FRA) home base - down 2.7 percent compared to the same month last year. With the start of the Winter Timetable 2012/2013, the airlines implemented a wave of consolidation initiatives because they have been hit hard by the difficult economic situation in many European countries, turbulent dynamics of the global economy, and the burden of national aviation taxes. The reduction in flight destinations and frequencies by the airlines resulted in the passenger decline during the reporting month.
Looking at the year overall, passenger traffic development remains unchanged: From January to November 2012 some 53.5 million passengers used Germany's largest aviation hub - an increase of 2.6 percent compared to the same 11-month period in 2011.
Handling almost 190,000 metric tons in November 2012, FRA recorded growth in cargo throughput for the first time this year - up 2.1 percent year-on-year. Aircraft movements dropped by 4.6 percent to about 38,000 takeoffs and landings. The accumulated maximum takeoff weights (MTOW) dropped by 3.7 percent to about 2.3 million metric tons.
Fraport's five majority-owned (consolidated) airports - Frankfurt Airport (FRA), Antalya (AYT), Burgas (BOJ), Varna (VAR) and Lima (LIM) - together served almost 6.4 million passengers in the reporting month, a modest increase of 1.0 percent. With more than 1.1 million passengers in the reporting month, Peru's Lima Airport continued to record particularly robust passenger growth in November 2012. AYT on the Turkish Riviera registered more than one million passengers in November 2012, a gain over the same period last year. Fraport's two airports on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, BOJ and VAR, together received about 33,700 passengers in November 2012.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory. But until recently, no one knew how to listen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, discussed recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model for s...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
