Vietnam Air Traffic Management (VATM) has awarded Frequentis AG a contract to supply the voice communications system for its new Area Control Center (ACC) located in Hanoi, Vietnam. As part of state-of-the-art air traffic management being constructed by VATM and designed to provide the safe flight within the Hanoi FIR, Frequentis will supply the safety critical Voice Communications System (VCS).
To meet the inherent high reliability requirement of an Air Traffic Control communications 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 decentralized architecture that incorporates extensive redundancy - providing a true parallel operation core switch with duplicated data and audio paths. The VCS 3020X provides the most modern user interface technology employing fully sunlight readable color touch panels. The VCS 3020X for the Hanoi ACC will comprise 50 working positions using the very latest Frequentis manufactured IP (iPOS) Touch Panel. The system will include positions for simulation and training of VATM controllers, as well as a standalone IP based radio backup system. The system will be delivered and installed at the new center in 2013.
"This contract shows VATM’s confidence in the FREQUENTIS VCS 3020X system and our past performance in similar ACC installations in Vietnam and the region.” said Rolf Unterberger – Member of the Frequentis Board “We expect that this installation will become a regional showcase and will lead to extended business in the region". Frequentis communications systems are in service at air traffic control centers, air defense facilities, police, fire, ambulance call centers and railroad command centers in over 80 countries. Frequentis is the world leading supplier of voice communication systems for Air Traffic Management and Air Defense.
