Rohde & Schwarz and Voipfuture launch monitoring solutions for air traffic management voice communications

German-based Rohde & Schwarz has announced a partnership with Voipfuture to release R&S AVQA, a monitoring solution for voice communications in air traffic management (ATM), the company said.

The transition to IP created new market needs and opportunities, which gave rise to the collaboration between the two companies.

R&S AVQA stands for ATC Voice Quality Assurance and provides air traffic service providers (ANSP) with unique passive monitoring capabilities for ATM communications that covers signaling as well as media and radio transmission performance.

Rohde & Schwarz teamed up with Voipfuture to create a unique solution for this important market. The development of R&S AVQA strongly benefited from the experience Voipfuture gained in over 10 years of Voice over IP (VoIP) monitoring in the telecommunications industry.

The solution is already deployed in a few ANSP networks assuring service quality. Typical use cases are monitoring quality and performance KPIs agreed on with WAN providers/carriers or the regular reporting of network quality towards the respective Civil Aviation Authority.

R&S AVQA is part of CERTIUM Analysis, which includes leading test and measurement solutions for VoIP networks, radios, navigation and satellite. Rohde & Schwarz recently introduced CERTIUM, as a one-stop solution for the full lifecycle of an ATC system.

Voipfuture, a voice quality analytics vendor providing tools for assessing, aggregating, analyzing, and visualizing voice quality information, brings years of experience in the domain of VoIP monitoring.
