Air Navigation Service Provider:
Ground-to-Ground network

High-performance, ultra-reliable IP networking
for new and legacy applications


Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) are caught between two worlds. They know they need to upgrade to all-IP networks that will support modern air traffic management (ATM) applications and services, but they still rely heavily on legacy applications that are critical to their operations.

The Nokia Ground-to-Ground Network solution gives ANSPs a single, high-performance network that supports new and legacy ATM applications with high reliability and the unique quality of service (QoS) each application needs. The converged, end-to-end IP and Multiprotocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS) and microwave network can span airport, domestic and regional ANSP operations. And the solution includes expert network planning, deployment and support services that simplify and accelerate the transition.

With the Nokia Ground-to-Ground Network solution, ANSPs can continue to upgrade to safer, more efficient and effective ATM operations while maintaining continuity of service. And they can evolve their operations in a way that reduces costs, complexity and risks.
