FREQUENTIS extends Malaysian ATM-grade network solution to include Borneo
The Frequentis IP network solution has been extended to the second Malaysian Flight Information Region (FIR) to encompass the rest of Malaysia
Following a successful installation of the Frequentis vitalsphere network solution for the new Kuala Lumpur Air Traffic Control Centre (KL ATCC), Frequentis was selected to extend the ATM-grade radio communication solution for the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) to the second FIR.
The solution is based on VCX-IP and integrates the centres at Kuching and Kota Kinabalu with 21 radio sites across Borneo, enhancing resilience and safety for air traffic control (ATC) radio communication. The Malaysian airspace is divided into the Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu FIR, with each having its own air traffic control centres, Kuala Lumpur ATCC (KL ATCC) and Kota Kinabalu ATCC (KK ATCC) as well as a sub-centre in Kuching.
