DFW’s TRIP was a nine-year program renovating the four original terminals, A, B, C, and E. The firm was retained to plan, design and administer upgrades to IT infrastructure and systems across the Airport. Complex planning and phasing were necessary to prevent IT systems outages in these terminal buildings, which remained fully operational during construction. This program of extensive renovations and replacements to operating terminal facilities provided some unique challenges. Maintaining each building tenant’s existing IT infrastructure throughout the phased construction of new IT spaces and pathways was critical.
TLC designed the following systems: Premise Distribution System (PDS), Wi-Fi, FIDS/BIDS/GIDS/RIDS, Common Use Passenger Processing Systems (CUPPS), Master Antenna Television (MATV), UHF/VHF Radio, Access Control System (ACS) (Terminals B and E), Video Surveillance (Terminals B and E), Duress Alarm (Terminals B and E), Aircraft Docking (Terminal B).
