The aviation industry is also using IoT outside standard commercial air travel, to help meet security and regulation requirements and to implement cutting-edge flight technology.
As a partner of the Federal Aviation Administration, Verizon's wireless network and IoT solutions play a critical role in air traffic control, helping to secure and optimize the National Airspace System. Through the enterprise drone company Skyward, Verizon is also providing companies with integrated drone software solutions, from training and project planning to accessing controlled airspace and collecting data. And since drones are likely to play an important role in the future of aviation—even in commercial air travel—these cutting-edge capabilities are key.
With the world preparing to fly again, it's encouraging to see that aircraft IoT solutions are on track to make the experience smoother and, above all, safer.
