Canadian ADM Aéroports de Montréal selected Frequentis’ innovative X10 VCS to enhance airspace communication for the Apron Management Section (AMS) at YUL Montréal-Trudeau International Airport in Canada! The system is operated by ADM, however, NAV CANADA, the air navigation service provider of Canada will also share access and operate radio and telephone resources, as a contingency solution in case of emergency tower evacuation.

Michael Lang, Managing Director Frequentis Canada said:

The X10 is Frequentis’ next-generation VCS to enhance business continuity throughout ATM operations, providing standard set-ups with fast turnaround times as well as the necessary resilience and cyber security features required for safety-critical ATM operations, including multi-level redundancy.

We are pleased to be providing this solution to ADM Aéroports de Montréal in order to enhance airspace operations as well as to support NAV CANADA in its role.

Frequentis X10 is designed for the effective operation of both virtualised and traditional airspace environments. Using its agile state-of-the art service-oriented architecture, the X10 adds future operational benefits through seamless integration with other systems. The new architecture concept also offers the flexibility to adjust its capacity based on demand and provides highest operational availability. With the natively implemented multi-redundancy methods, the X10 utilises two independent IP networks for exceptional redundancy and voice quality on air-ground connections through parallel audio.

Vincent Cormier, APRON controller for ADM Aéroports de Montréal said:

Frequentis X10 is intuitive, easy to operate, and makes it easy to train other controllers. Its functionality suits ADM’s needs and works as expected. Support from the Frequentis project team was excellent, working resiliently to resolve any challenges that came up during the installation and execution of the Site Acceptance Test (SAT).

With the new service-oriented architecture is based on MosaiX multi-redundancy concepts, and compliance with standards such as ED-137, X10 brings true innovation into the ATC communications, allowing organisations to enhance airport operations and maintain safety as airspace demands change.
