COM11 — Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)

Within pre-SWIM evolutions and preparation of SWIM implementation, the purpose of this ESSIP implementation objective is to ensure that all ECAC States implement ATM-VoIP, which provides the appropriate signalisation required for ATM voice communication.

The initiative covers inter centre (encompassing all type of ATM Units) voice communication and the links with the ground radio stations

Inter centres voice communications are currently mainly performed via analogue circuits. In 2003, to implement digital communications, the ATS-QSIG protocol has been chosen to replace part of these communications. At present and in order to follow the evolution of the communication technologies, VoIP is identified as being the medium term standard for ground telephony and ground segment of the Air-Ground voice. Industry has already developed a standard for ATM-VoIP. The standard shall still be validated as part of SESAR JU WP15.2.10, but several ANSPs expressed their wish to migrate quickly to ATM-VoIP for ground telephony and the ground segment of the Air-Ground voice.

Furthermore, a number of Telecommunication Service Providers (TELCO-s) are planning to phase out analogue and digital 64k circuits that support current analogue and digital ATM voice services. It is expected that current services will begin to be phased out in a number of the ECAC States. A replacement of current analogue and digital ATM voice services with a common standard is therefore strongly needed at European level.

FOR MILITARY AUTHORITIES: It is the responsibility of each Military Authority to review this ESSIP Objective IN ITS ENTIRETY and address each of the SloAs that the Military Authority considers RELEVANT for itself. This has to be done on top and above of the review of "MIL" SloAs which identify actions EXCLUSIVE to MIL Authorities.
