[SatNews] Advantech Wireless has been awarded a major contract with a Civil Aviation Government entity in Latin America to provide a turnkey solution based on its state-of-the-art mesh VSAT network for Air Traffic Control and airport communication in very remote airports in the Latin American territory.
This contract also includes full set of integration logistics and support services as well as satellite bandwidth provisioning. The new satellite network will complement and expand the already installed high speed terrestrial microwave point-to-point network solution developed and deployed by Advantech Wireless. This network will improve the Civil Aviation Security and Safety levels, in accordance with national and international regulations.
The system will be composed of two geographically redundant Hubs, equipped with 4.5m antennas and all RF chains provided by Advantech Wireless transmission equipment to interface with the Advantech Wireless fully geographical redundant MF-TDMA Discovery Hubs and the S5220 Mesh satellite routers, which will guarantee highest level of operational availability (99.999 percent) in the solution. The system will operate simultaneously in Star (Hub to remotes) and Mesh mode (direct remote to remote connectivity) with aim to decrease the latency for real-time voice services between remotes and the costs associated with the use of satellite bandwidth.
