OPTIMIZATION OF THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS NETWORK BETWEEN TWO AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL CENTERS USING MICROWAVE LINKS
Microwave line of sight transmission is one of several transmission media in modern commutation. An important part of microwave network is to account for these conditions and provide technical corrections. Currently, the Telecommunication Network (TN) between the two area air traffic control centers in BHANSA is based on leased lines from the “Consortium”, which consists of three telecom operators in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In this way, the quality of services provided through such a network depends on the availability of such a network. The disadvantages of this solution are the high cost of leasing telecommunication lines, the lack of end-to-end supervision of the entire network by BHANSA staff, the dependence of service maintenance and any request for future capacity increase requires the procurement of new services from the telecom operator, which implies new costs. The aim of the work is to offer a transport network solution that will be based on microwave links (MW) with high output power (HP) and a long range, which reduces the number of jumps in the network and in a protective configuration, with sufficient capacity to meet the current and future needs of BHANSA.
