COM11.1 — Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in En-Route

This Implementation Objective aims at an efficient use of voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) by harmonised and coordinated implementation for ground/ground and ground part of ground/air aeronautical communications, ensuring network benefits from VoIP implementation.

The initiative covers inter centre (encompassing all type of ATM Units) voice communication and the links with the ground radio stations. COM11.1 is applicable to ‘En-Route’ and ‘Network’ Operating Environments. Inter-centre voice communications are currently mainly performed via analogue and digital circuits.

This legacy ATM voice services will soon no longer be supported by the European telecommunication service providers, making the use of new technology necessary. At present and in order to follow the evolution of the communication technologies, ATM-VoIP is the global standard (ICAO DOC 9896 ed2, based on EUROCAE ED137-B) for ground telephony and ground segment of the Air-Ground voice. ATM-VoIP industrial standard (EUROCAE ED-137) is maintained and evolved over time to ensure that voice communication requirements are met. Transition towards VoIP is bringing interoperability.

Cross-border aspects need to be addressed appropriately within the network perspective. VoIP in ATM constitutes an essential part of Network Strategy Plan SO 8 - Sub-project 2 - VoIP implementation.

This sub-project aims at an efficient use of Voice over Internet Protocol by harmonised and coordinated implementation for ground/ground and ground part of ground/air aeronautical communications, ensuring network benefits from VoIP implementation.

NOTE: COM11.1 is a successor of the former objective COM11. Its applicability date is related to the DP Family 3.1.4 in the context of supporting FRA, however the objective COM11.1 (and old COM11) goes beyond DP Family 3.1.4 (FRA) and plans harmonised VoIP implementation in the whole En-Route environment (without FL310 limitation). This to be able to collect yearly progress reports from all implementations (DP related and None-DP related).

NOTE FOR MILITARY AUTHORITIES: It is the responsibility of each military authority to review this 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 military authorities.
