TOPEX IP-VCS Presented at ATC Global, 11-13 March 2008, Amsterdam

For the fourth consecutive year TOPEX will exhibit between 11th and 13th of March at the world's largest event for the air traffic control and management industry, ATC Global Amsterdam, where its IP-VCS solution for ATC Communications will be presented.

Bucharest, Romania, March 03, 2008 --( TOPEX IP-VCS is a redundant digital system with flexible and scalable architecture to allow its configuration for a wide range of applications in the ATC/ATM field. The key components of this solution are: Controller Working Positions, Database, OAM, Media Gateways, Radio Servers and Gateways, Synchronization Servers.

TOPEX successfully deployed already two IP-VCS systems in Romania and prepares for more in near future. The company developed complete signaling stacks that comply with standards and drafts of International Regulation bodies (SIP, R2S, RTP, MFC-R2, Euro-ISDN, etc.). One key aspect with TOPEX system is geographical redundancy. The redundant systems can be separated geographically so that if a server in one site fails the second server in a distant location will become active. Geographical redundancy makes TOPEX IP-VCS resistant both to hardware and IP-link failures.

TOPEX participation at ATC Global consists not only in showcasing its developments but also in a presentation in the Seminar Programme for IP Communications.

"Pure IP VCS in ATC networks: architecture, protocols and implementation" is the title of the presentation that will be sustained by Radu Balaci, Business Development Manager at TOPEX on 11th of March. The presentation describes the IP VCS system flexibility, survivability and scalability far in excess of that provided by conventional VCS architectures based on a TDM structure. This way, TOPEX explains how to optimize cost of communication in ATC using IP solutions, at high quality standards.

"We are confident that ATC Global 2008 will give us an effective way of presenting the advantages of TOPEX IP-VCS in front of our clients" said Radu Balaci, Business Development Manager at TOPEX. "Know-How of eighteen years in voice-switching, six years in VoIP, adding the experience in traditional and IP-VCS systems plus the fact that it can offer a complete end-to-end VCS system make TOPEX an important candidate when implementing IP-VCS and that`s why we look forward to getting into contact with potential customers", added Radu Balaci.

The exhibition brings together the suppliers and key buyers of air traffic control and management products and services from all over the world and TOPEX team will join these participants between 11th and 13th of March in Hall 10, stand D131.
