Project Name: Infrastructure and Networking Project for SITA Cute, Mumbai
Location: Chattrapati Shivaji International Airport, Mumbai
Duration: 17th May 06 – 07th July 2006

Client Requirement

SITA CUTE - Bombay
Optical Fiber back bone connectivity from terminal 2A to terminal 2C with redundant path.
Fiber link connectivity within terminal 2C in various network racks in 3 different floors.
Further link connectivity from various network racks to Back offices, Counters, Tango Gates; check in counters, Transfer desks, Baggage and Handling etc
Link connectivity to Air India Department of Information Technology Room from SITA Network control room (Engineer Room / SITA Core Room2 in Terminal 2C).
Installation of Electrical changeover with essential and non-essential connectivity from CIAL switch room to installed IDFs (Intermediate Distribution Frame) in various locations.
Installation and build up of Manager and Engineer room with interiors, furniture, electrical, voice and data connectivity.
Proper and dedicated earth connectivity from earth pit to terminal 2A to terminal 2C and further to all counters where SITA expanding their network connectivity in entire Airport.



  This was a big challenge for XentaQsys to successfully execute and complete entire task with in specified time frame of 60 days in which AAI instructed to use MS (Mild Steel) conduits only in entire installation apart GI (Galvanized Iron) for terrace. We prepared plan of action with deadlines and engaged more manpower and divided on into 3 different teams of laying and installing MS and GI Conduits since the distance was too much to cover with out compromising on quality.
  The large segment which we suppose to cover was the link connectivity across the terminal (terminal 2A to terminal 2C) which is approximate 925 mtrs (very close to 1 KM). We have to lay down MS and GI Conduits and Outdoor Armored Optical Fiber Cable with proper clamps and brackets from 2 different routes for redundancy. We select one route from terrace and other one from Ground floor above false ceiling. Apart from that we have to paint all GI conduits with green color as per SITA standard maintaining in Mumbai Airport before we can use it.
  Since we are strongly following international standards and as per IEEE (Institute of electrical and electronic engineers) standards we can not lay down GI Conduits and OFC in Open surface. We build up Cable Tray with Anti rust coating and installed above 8” from terrace level across the terminals. All conduits were installed with proper clamps over the Cable Tray and pull OFC from one terminal to another.
  Installation of Redundant path was also not very easy. We have to open the grid of false ceilings after every 1 mtrs to do the installation. There was no support to hold MS Conduits. Technicians climbed from down in crane / metal ladder to fix up MS conduits. Again to maintain the standards we can fix the clamps in open concrete wall, we clamped first L and V shaped angles then run MS Conduits from installed angles with further proper clamps.
  Above all to follow all the processes and standards is bit long and time consuming especially with MS conduits to hope to deliver on time is too less when you are doing the installation in Airports/public places when you have to wait in betweens lots of time in a day when passengers are moving and stop your work completely till the Aircraft departs considering the protection and security to passengers. But with proper plan, coordination and our specialty in Airports project we successfully complete entire installation on time with out compromising on quality. We are constantly trying to provide best possible support to our esteemed customers.
