New capacity for international airport


The Urumqi Diwopu International Airport is one of China’s major aviation hubs. The most recent expansion is designed to handle a maximum of 63 million passengers and 750,000 tons of cargo per year. Datwyler was awarded the contract for the structured cabling used, including in the new terminal and the IT centre. The installation includes more than 40,000 Category 6A data connection points. In addition, Datwyler is supplying the airport with around 1000 kilometres of fibre optic cable for indoor and outdoor use, as well as a pre-assembled OM4 MTP system for the data centre.
