Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) may choose to operate their own Very High Frequency Digital Network (VDL) network of VHF stations. If so, they can include a datalink processor and an aeronautical telecommunication network (ATN) router. But the best option for a seamless CPDLC service – and to comply with the European Implementing Rule on Data Link Services – is to adopt our ATN Backbone Service.

State-of-the-art infrastructure

State-of-the-art infrastructure

Our infrastructure offers access to a wide variety of media. They include VHF communications (both POA and VDLm2 frequencies); SATCOM communications via Inmarsat, MTSAT and Iridium constellations; and new generation IP links. Performance is assured whether the VDLm2 Ground Station (VGS) is managed by ANSPs or SITA.

Pioneering communications

Pioneering communications

Our aircraft communications infrastructure leads the world, embracing the technologies, standards and protocols needed for ANSPs in every corner of the globe.

Our ACARS processors in Montreal and Singapore relay data between aircraft and airline operational centers, and between aircraft and ATC facilities, increasingly using ACARS. Our ATC applications include FANS, DCL, D-ATIS, D-VOLMET, OCL, and more.

As the industry’s leading innovator, we’ve deployed a complete multi-frequency ATN/VDLm2 network in European airspace, so that network loads can be distributed efficiently.
