VoIP-Based System Guarantees Resilience and Reliability
Indra will be equipping NATO’s Combined Air Operations Center (CAOC) in Uedem, Germany, with a state-of-the-art voice communications system (VCS) to strengthen capabilities in coordination of air policing missions protecting the continent’s skies north of the Alps, the company announced on 24 May.
The programme, funded by the NATO MSecurity Investment Programme (NSIP), involves Indra providing a VCS based on Voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology, that will guarantee maximum resilience and availability, and allows for the management of classified information. It will enhance the capabilities of the CAAOC, part of NATO’s air command structure and the NATO Integrated Air and Missile Defence System (NATINAMDS). The Uedem facility directs Alliance air policing operations in central and northern Europe, including Baltic Air Policing operations.
The Indra solution is designed to recover from any failure or attack occurring in any of its nodes, enabling the CAOC to continue to provide service at all times. It also complies with EUROCAE standards, and all NATO security requirements for managing classified and unclassified information.
