By this, deploying internet protocol compliant infrastructure for exchange of information as an interoperable baseline / prerequisite for the future deployment of SWIM functionalities and ATM system information exchange all the while ensuring further conformity to EU No. 633/2007.
RAPNET NG will provide a common WAN infrastructure for all DFS sites to ensure future IP communications compliance with external stakeholders. This fulfils the provision of stakeholder SWIM Infrastructure components as required in AF 5.2.1. DFS external partners like Airlines, Airports, Military and MET will be connected to RAPNET NG utilizing gateways to the RAPNET NG infrastructure (PENS or bilateral connections).
RAPNET NG will ensure cost efficiency of SWIM deployment by replacement of the current Ericsson PPX based Multiservice WAN Infrastructure at all DFS sites by an MPLS based WAN infrastructure.
