DF NÚCLEO CONSOLIDATES ITS LEADING POSITION IN VOIP MIGRATION OF AERONAUTICAL COMMUNICATIONS IN SPAIN WITH A NEW CONTRACT FOR AENA
DF Núcleo has been awarded the contract to migrate the aeronautical communications of the Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas Airport to VoIP. It is the Spanish airport with the largest number of operations and passengers traffic. 

The DF subsidiary will supply VHF radios for Ground/Air (G/A) communications with 8.33 kHz channel spacing capacity, in accordance with the requirements established in the Single European Sky regulations.  

The project covers the supply, installation and set-up of more than 50 Main Transmission/Reception radios (including the RF and Supervision subsystems) and the Last Resort Radio (LARA) systems, equipment for the G/A communications system for the North, South and West control towers of the Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas Airport.

Description of the solution
With this contract, the technology implemented by DF Núcleo will enable the airport to expand its air traffic management capacity, because it will reduce the current channel spacing of 25 kHz to 8.33 kHz, increasing the number of channels available in the VHF band for aeronautical communications and creating new control sectors. The equipment supplied also strengthens the current migration to VoIP technology because it is able to process data under that protocol.
