Sirti and Nokia cooperate with ENAV to set up the E-NET2 communications network, part of the national air traffic control network
ENAV, the Air Navigation Service Provider in Italy, has chosen Sirti and Nokia for the supply and installation of the equipment as part of the upgrade of its regional operating network to new high-performance IP / MPLS architecture (E-NET2)
Milan, 13 November 2019 – Sirti Digital Solutions, market leader in system integration for networking, cybersecurity, IoT, cloud and data centres, and Nokia, leading communication solutions innovator, have been selected to upgrade the ENET-2 operations communications network that supports ENAV’s air traffic control system.
The new high-performance IP / MPLS network will be built based on carrier-grade Nokia routers. E-NET2 is expected to operate at the highest levels of resilience and security, including interoperability with other networks and technologies. This high performance ‘ground-ground’ network will support other communication, navigation, and surveillance (CNS) applications which are vital for ENAV’s business and mission. Since the Nokia solution is designed to support legacy applications and the latest mission-critical connectivity requirements, it will guarantee quicker and more secure transfer of data.
Sirti Digital Solutions will help construct the E-NET2 network in several phases, providing specialist support for the design, implementation, and maintenance.
Benedetto Di Salvo, Vice President of Business Unit Digital Solutions, Sirti, said: “This project is a concrete example of Sirti Digital Solutions’ leading role in transforming networks. We are certain that this partnership with Nokia will further strengthen our ability to diversify and adapt to our clients’ increasingly complex needs. ENAV is a strategic client for us and we are proud to be supporting their technological development.”
Alessandro Manno, Director of Global Enterprise Italia at Nokia, said: “We are proud to be working with Sirti to help ENVA carry out the E-NET2 project. This success strengthens our presence in Italy’s mission-critical communications market and strengthens our partnership with Sirti in a new business segment.”
