ND SatCom’s SKYWAN 5G Leads the Way with Bolivian National VSAT Network

September 15, 2017 - In another step toward expanding its presence in South America, ND SatCom won the opportunity to develop a telecom network for Sistema Integrado de Defensa Aerea y Control de Trafico Aereo (SIDACTA) to securely and reliably connect locations across Bolivia. This telecommunications network for integrated air defence and civil air traffic management (ATM) will rely on the SKYWAN 5G VSAT network as the primary network, with a secondary one from ENTEL providing terrestrial backup where feasible. The VSAT network uses C-band transponders as recommended by ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation). The SKYWAN 5G network will be used in a star topology. This VSAT network will interconnect eleven fixed radar sites and two GM 400 mobile radars to form the robust primary telecom network for both civil and military air traffic controls in Bolivia. Redundant master sites will ensure network availability and guarantee data security. The VSAT network will make use of fly-away terminals for mobile deployments. Since the network will cover high-altitude locations in Bolivia, operational capability at 5000 m above sea level is required.
