Balancing performance and cost

Providing the best results in ATM communications and keeping aviation passengers safe requires a solution designed for the challenges of a modern air traffic management network. By understanding your needs, Frequentis provides innovative solutions to help maintain the highest level of safety while scaling capacity and improving cost competitiveness.

Challenges of a modern air traffic management network

Matching air traffic and safety demands with the right network is a big challenge in ATM. It is the core element to achieving the ambitious goals of the industry globally – increasing air space capacity, increasing safety and reducing cost per flight.

While merging all of the IP applications onto a converged IP infrastructure allows for a reduction in operational costs, safety-critical applications require a dedicated solution. This is also a requirement for the implementation of SWIM, virtual centres and remote towers.

Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) need to integrate multiple technologies (e.g. MPLS, microwave, VSAT) onto a single backbone from many providers. The design of such a hybrid network has many challenges – different network delays, varying jitter, routing protocols support and failover behaviour.

Frequentis solves these challenge by providing application-aware routing of communications based not only on the priority of those communications, but also the current performance of the networks available to carry the traffic
