The technical solution is centered around the vitalsphere™ automatic service level manager NetBroker. NetBroker was specifically developed for the Air Traffic Management (ATM) environment and was designed and implemented according to the applicable ATM safety standards.

“We are delighted to be continuing our successful relationship with Frequentis by taking this first step to optimise the performance of our ATM network. Given the remote location of many of our aerodromes, a secure and resilient network performing at its peak is vital to the safety and efficiency of our operations” says Captain Ted Pakii, CEO and Managing Director at NiuSky Pacific Limited.

The pilot project includes the installation of the vitalsphere portfolio elements at Port Moresby as well as at a remote site. The automatic service level manager, which is designed specifically for the safety-critical ATM domain, performs constant evaluation of each available network connection. With this information it dynamically reroutes single traffic flows to the network, delivering the required performance and quality values for this specific type of traffic with no loss of network service. As a result, the end-to-end availability of each traffic flow is maximised, allowing air traffic controllers to keep the skies open and safe.

“Frequentis’ focus is on providing safe and secure solutions for ATM environments. We are proud, that we can provide NiuSky Pacific with an innovative but proven technology to make their network ATM-grade. By utilising our automatic service level manager, we fill the technical gap between conventional IP networks and the very specific and heterogeneous requirements of various ATM applications,” says Hannu Juurakko, Frequentis Vice President ATM Civil and Chairman of the ATM Executive Team.

Frequentis first worked with the ANSP of Papua New Guinea in 2014, implementing voice communication for the ACC in Port Moresby. By implementing intelligent routing and control with Frequentis, NiuSky Pacific Limited is moving towards creating scalable networks and enhanced situational awareness together with ATM-grade networks standards for the region.
