The new AFTN/CIDIN/AMHS solution for the National Air Navigation Services Company (NANSC) of Egypt gained site acceptance in Cairo. Utmost customer satisfaction crowned the operational cut-over in mid November.
CAIRO/EGYPT, November 2008 COMSOFT announces to have completed the modernization of an existing AFTN/CIDIN system in Egypt. The superior AIDA NG of COMSOFT is routing the substantial traffic and now guarantees a superior level of smooth and reliable message switching operations in the Cairo Air Navigation Centre.
Cairo is considered the central aeronautical communication hub between Europe, North-Africa and the Middle East. In this important role Cairo has to provide fully standard-compliant and reliable CIDIN services. Therefore, NANSC was seeking for an expeditious completion of the project and a quick transition of operational service to the new system immediately after successful completion of the site acceptance tests. Within the period of elaborate testing which was conducted in mid November 2008, the new system also proved its capabilities to serve as fully integrated AMHS switch and as sophisticated user agent. Now the Egyptian ANSP is aiming at establishing AMHS connections with neighbouring countries.
