Frequentis’ fastest end-to-end voice over IP (VoIP) communication system (VCS) will be installed at key air traffic management facilities in Eqypt.

National Air Navigation Services Company (NANSC) of Egypt will implement Frequentis’ VCS to enhance the country’s aviation infrastructure. Deployment will include the Cairo Air Navigation Center (CANC), Cairo tower, back-up tower and approach system, and the emergency centre at Katamaya, New Cairo. Orascom Services, headquartered in Cairo, Egypt, will act as systems integrator.

“One of the key advantages of the new VCS is in its future-proof design, enabling seamless integration with upcoming IP radio connections,” said Josef Kutschi, managing director Frequentis Middle East. 

This VCS deployment underscores NANSC's ongoing trust in Frequentis' capabilities, following the successful implementation of 19 voice communication control systems (VCCS) across Egypt in 2006. The project involves replacing the legacy Frequentis VCS for one of the towers and phasing out end-of-life systems from Schmid VCS at the CANC Center. Additionally, these systems facilitate unified operation and maintenance procedures across 19 facilities for seamless operation.

Frequentis VCS3020X is the fastest end-to-end voice over IP (VoIP) system for ATC and the only fully duplicated, parallel running voice communication system for dynamic air traffic management (ATM) environments.
