SITTI will be providing a brand new VCS (Voice Communication System Solution) for Azerbaijan airports. This is not the first time SITTI is supplying its systems and solutions to this country. In 2019, in fact, SITTI VCCS was chosen for the Airspace Supervision & Efficiency Center (ASEC) in Baku, which is part of Azeraeronavigatsiya (AZANS), the Azerbaijan Air Navigation Service Provider, to optimize the airspace utilization in the region.
The new system belongs to the topmost category of VCS systems developed by SITTI. It is a MULTIFONO® M800IP® Voice Communication System, fully compatible with the most recent communication standards issued by international standardization bodies like EUROCAE and EUROCONTROL. Among these, standard ED-137 is probably the most important and well-known because it defines the way data and audio shall be dealt with in a full IP-based VoIP scenario.
The SITTI VCS will be able to simultaneously manage analogue and digital telephone lines of various types (LB, CB, PABX, etc.) and analogue VHF/UHF radio channels, but also seamlessly expandable to include full radio and telephone lines according to the provisions of the ED 137 standard.
The supply is complemented by fully configurable, ergonomic and easy-to-use controllers panels to make the work of air traffic controllers as easy, yet error-free, as possible. Such panels are based on a very reliable touchscreen keyboard, where keys, sizes, colours, access functions can be autonomously defined by the customer.
The systems being delivered to Azerbaijan, justify the large capability of SITTI to cope with different customer needs, ranging from small airfields to very large ACC centres. The huge experience and expertise accumulated in providing future-proof and mission-critical solutions worldwide make SITTI the optimum solution provider wherever secure, configurable, flexible and reliable communications are needed.
