ATC - CERTIUM® - Efficiency

Efficiency

CERTIUM® features seamless integration of all components, designed out of one hand, with 100 % IP compatibility in order to create a comprehensive system, offering minimal maintenance and repair, thereby reducing operating costs.

Constantin von Reden
Constantin von Reden - Vice President Market Segment ATC

"Increasing air traffic density and the continued challenge to reduce costs are creating new challenges for air navigation service providers. CERTIUM® is a technological answer to both issues. The communications suite ensures absolute availability and increased situational awareness and, at the same time, cost- and resource-efficient operation."

Francesco Gualtieri
Francesco Gualtieri - Product Manager ATC Radios

"The R&S®Series5200 is actually more than just a radio: it is an advanced and fully integrated network component, with a secure-by-design architecture and extremely flexible network interfaces. Of course, it provides voice and data RF link in the uncompromised quality you would expect from a Rohde & Schwarz radio."

Alexandru Negulescu
Alexandru Negulescu - Managing Director R&S Center of Competence for VCS

"The new radio is a perfect match for our innovative fully IP based voice communications system, CERTIUM® VCS-4G, which has a proven track record in more than 200 projects worldwide. Thanks to our more than 10 years of experience in deploying IP based VCS systems, we can support our customers in their transition from legacy to modern ATC networks – from design to implementation, operation and support."
