Haikou is the main city on the isle of Hainan, in the south of China. It is the most populated city on the island with almost 2 million people. 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 coming from this big country underlines and makes explicit the excellent reputation that our company has gained 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 thought for the improvement and increase of the traffic management capacity of the local Haikou Meilan International Airport. 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 straightforward 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.
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 Haikou operators.
