Airport First In The Nation To Monitor Wi-Fi Traffic
The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport will start using new technology to try to reduce wait times and boost retail sales at terminals. The Cincinnati Business Courier reports the airport will be the first in the U.S. to use software called “BlipTrack” to monitor how many Wi-Fi devices such as smart phones and tablets are in a particular area at a certain time.
Lockheed Martin, which created the system, says it’s already in use at 20 airports internationally. Airport officials say the software doesn’t gather personal information.
