Dubai International Airport and Maktoum Airport will be equipped with Indra's Garex 300 digital IP voice communications system after the Spanish technology company was awarded a three-year contract to upgrade these systems.
According to Indra, the new system includes "the most advanced technology available and represents a huge leap in security".
The airports already operate with the precursor to the new system, Garex 220, which has been upgraded and will be replaced by Garex 230 as an intermediate step so that the technology can coexist with legacy equipment while the migration takes place.
This will make the transition between systems easier and will not affect airport operations.
This system is the latest development in Indra's long line of voice communication control systems, which have been providing these services for six decades.
Voice over IP technology converts each component of the system into an independent network node, which operates autonomously, offering maximum flexibility in network configuration and allowing immediate integration and interoperability with other solutions, as well as performance and reliability far superior to other systems.
The company has also recently been awarded the digitisation of the system that manages the European air navigation network.
