Airbus Defence & Space selects Advantech Wireless for Border Control Infrastructure Project

Advantech Wireless, a global leader for Satellite and Microwave broadband communications solutions, has been selected by Airbus Defence & Space to provide the Beyond Line of Sight communications solution as part of their very successful Border Control infrastructure.

Andy Hide, Airbus Defence & Space Project Manager, commented, “In looking for a partner for this project, our team looked long and hard at a wide range of options. I am delighted to confirm that Advantech Wireless has proven to be an excellent choice: Firstly, they clearly know their customer and their solution is not only a smart fit to requirements, they are also continually pushing to innovate. Secondly, their dedication to the project has been outstanding: results do not happen overnight and Advantech Wireless has remained consistently committed throughout, frequently going that extra mile to keep the project on track.”

Advantech Wireless have successfully partnered with Airbus to provide A-SAT™ technology capable Hubs and Remotes delivering a realistic, affordable yet highly adaptable SatCom option where fibre or microwave links are unachievable in a Border Control & Security arena.

Advantech Wireless offers the world’s leading, two-way, open standard (DVB-RCS), broadband satellite access system. Their Hubs and Terminals are highly flexible and several different network architectures are possible. The award winning A-SAT™ technology provided in this deployment is beyond dual mode DVB-RCS/TDMA-SCPC. It monitors channel utilization and switches the satellite access method and MODCOD for the return channel in real time to dynamically maximize the space segment utilization efficiency. Additionally, by having TDMA and true DVB-S2 SCPC technologies in a single platform, the switch between traffic patterns is efficiently supported and all risks of equipment obsolescence are mitigated.
