Top quality Swiss products for the global market
The ICS 200/60 voice communication system has been installed for air traffic control, airport ground services and coast guard applications at several hundred sites all over the world. Since the installation of the first generation the platform was steadily updated.
The customer has today the choice to run the proven ICS 200/60 software either on specific Schmid Telecom Zurich hardware or pure IP based COTS equipment. Both solutions are fully compliant to EUROCONTROL, EUROCAE VoIP ED- 137 and the respective standards of ICAO.
At the same time different generations of hardware within the same operational ICS 200/60 system can be mixed, enabling all customers that are operating ICS 200/60 systems to smoothly upgrade their systems to become fully compatible with the latest standards in the most economical way, without interfering with the on-going operation. The system is hence fully backward compatible to enable easy lifetime management to all customers.
The ICS 200/60 system is composed of a redundant, delay- less network of controller working positions < 5ms and all kinds of analogue and digital radio and telephone network access interfaces. A maximum delay on radio transmission of less than 20ms is guaranteed.
Seamless networking and remote access enables a perfect platform for reliable voice communication for temporary remote tower operation. The ICS 200/60 has the unique advantages that all customers are running the same global valid software releases what eases maintenance.
