The article discusses wireless communication system installed in the Municipal airport of Renton. Municipal airport of Renton, Washington., where Boeing Co. shares an aircraft production facility, the operation needed a new access control system. The production plant needed to upgrade the electric and pedestrian gate system providing access to the aircraft operation area as part of major security upgrade project. The equipment included wireless reader interfaces , Panel Interface Modules. After working out a few bugs, the system has operated flawlessly. The wireless system has saved the airport hundreds of staff hours by linking all of the vehicle gates and allowing manipulation of one or all gates with a click of the mouse button.
