NFF was recently awarded a contract for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority’s (MWAA) real-time network monitoring and visualization project. MWAA selected NFF to procure OPNET’s nCompass product to provide a unified dashboard that will enable them to expedite troubleshooting and reduce network downtime. nCompass allows granular triaging of various network devices through a management dashboard with key performance indicators (KPIs). This will increase staff productivity and availability of business-critical applications.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority is governed by a Board of Directors, which consist of 17 members appointed by the Governor of Virginia, Mayor of the District of Columbia, Governor of Maryland and by the President of the United States. MWAA provides airport operation services domestically and internationally for the mid-Atlantic region. MWAA is responsible for managing both Reagan International and Dulles Airports. MWAA has also provided for capital improvements at both airports with major renovations for efficient passenger facilities and Metrorail services. The Airports Authority is currently managing a project to extend Metrorail from the Orange line to Dulles Airport and Loudoun County.
