Germany’s civil aviation authority started a worldwide invitation to tender for the renewal of the country-wide hotline intercom network. The German ANSP, DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung (DFS), decided to award this prestigious contract to Frequentis. The project encompasses the Centre/Approach-controller working positions and the delivery of all DFS Tower sites with a Frequentis IP communication solution.
Frequentis, the unrivalled market leader in safety-critical communication systems for ATM, builds on excellent reputation with IP Communication systems across Germany. Beginning with the delivery of the first deployable IP system for Germany’s Air Force in 2004 and completing it with the first nationwide replacement of all fixed installations with IP systems a few years ago, Frequentis has constantly been pioneering the market for IP Voice Communication Systems.
Robert Schickling, Managing Director Operations at DFS, is satisfied with the decision: 'For DFS the communication between the Approach Centres in Langen, Munich and Bremen and the tower systems is extremely critical in terms of time and safety. That’s why we decided in favour of the IP communication solution from Frequentis, a company with a sound track record in delivering large-scale ATM projects.’ Frequentis CEO Hannes Bardach adjoins: 'We are proud that our IP system meets all the safety aspects of DFS and additionally cuts line costs to half compared to other systems around. The system includes 157 approach positions and 123 remote tower positions. Our IP solutions implements ATC grade audio quality with a Mean Opinion Score (MOS) value greater than four. We look forward to continue our successful cooperation with the renewal of Germany’s country-wide hotline intercom network.’
