FREQUENTIS selected by Verizon for FAA’s Enterprise Network Services (FENS) contract
Under the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) FENS contract Frequentis will work together with Verizon to transition the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS) to a modern IP network.
The NAS supports more than one billion passengers per year. In the FAA’s mission to continue to provide the safest and most efficient aerospace system in the world, the FENS programme will update the FAA’s telecommunications network across the United States. The prime contract was recently awarded to Verizon, with Frequentis supporting all phases of the programme.
“Frequentis is proud to have been selected by Verizon for the important objective of interfacing the FAA’s operational ATM systems to the FENS backbone. Our VCX-IP and NetBroker have been designed for this exact purpose. We are looking forward to supporting Verizon’s FENS team in its evolution of the FAA’s network infrastructure,” says Dieter Eier, President, Frequentis USA. “Under the contract, Frequentis will also supply enterprise services for configuration and network management, along with architecture and integration support.”
