Frequentis has received a contract from OEA Grands Projets, Tripoli, Libya. As part of the air traffic control (ATC) tower package being supplied to Tripoli International Airport by OEA, Frequentis will supply the towers voice communication control systems (VCCS). The contract includes a separate radio backup system.
To meet the inherent requirement for high reliability in an ATC switching system, Frequentis will supply its VCS 3020X system. The VCS 3020X voice communication system employs state of the art technology for digital voice communications. It is based on a unique, highly modular, distributed and decentralised architecture that incorporates extensive redundancy - providing a true parallel operation core switch with duplicated data and audio paths. The VCS 3020X features the very latest user interface technology, such as sunlight readable colour touch panels. The VCS 3020X systems will be equipped with a total of 28 operational work positions providing access to the main and backup systems. Delivery is scheduled for the end of 2010, with completion in early 2011. Frequentis communications systems are in service in over 70 countries at air traffic control centres, air defence facilities, emergency service call centres (police, fire, ambulance), and maritime and railroad command centres.
