SITTI IN THE SOUTH OF CHINA

Zhanjiang is a big city with more than 7 million people located on the Leizhou peninsula in the South of China, belonging to the Guangdong province. It is an important harbour on the South China Sea and industrial city with large commercial interests.

For the improvement and expansion of the local airport, SITTI has been awarded the supply of a brand new MULTIFONO® M800IP® Voice Communication Solution (VCS), through the very good work and capabilities of our local representative, Beijing XiDi Communication Technology Co., Ltd.

Over the past years, SITTI has been installing a large number of VCS systems throughout China. The new order witnesses the excellent reputation that our company has got in the Far East, thanks to its top level systems, capable of adapting themselves to many different environments and capable of managing the Air Traffic Control of small airfields as well as large ACC centres.

The new VCS has been installed at the local Zhanjiang International Airport for the improvement and increase of the traffic management capacity; the airport has become operative on March 24th. It envisages a set of controller working positions, capable of interfacing both analogue and digital radios and telephone lines, with all the features and facilities available at larger installations.

This allows the system to get all benefits from the native flexibility of its MULTIFONO® IP-based architecture, without losing the possibility of providing full access to all kinds of interfaces and lines. The system is fully complying with the most recent standards issued by EUROCAE in its ED-137, which defined the rules for the use of VoIP (Voice over IP) in the Air Traffic Control and Management fields.

A significant number of analogue and digital radios and telephone lines are interfaced to this system through dedicated gateway cards that convert signalling and voice according to the ED-137 provisions. This allows air traffic controllers to speak to pilots and other operators and make air traffic safer in their area of responsibility.

The new system is seamlessly expandable at any moment in time by simply adding new controller working positions and/or modules. Their configuration can be autonomously carried out by the local staff by means of the supervision and maintenance system, which is also part of the supply: they can be put into operation in a matter of minutes, thus significantly enhancing the air traffic control capabilities of Zhanjiang operators.

SITTI UPGRADE OF CAMBODIA SYSTEMS

The positive reputation that SITTI has accumulated in the past years through the supply of several systems in the Far East region is further witnessed by the award of a new order through Samart Aviation Solutions Public Company Limited (SAV). The new order consists of two new VCSs (Voice Communication System) for the main airports in Cambodia:

  • NPPIA – New Phnom Penh International Airport
  • NSRIA – New Siem Reap International Airport

Both VCSs belong to the M800IP® family of MULTIFONO ® systems, which implement the latest provisions defined by the most recent international standards issued by the competent bodies, like the EUROCAE ED 137 standard.
