TDM to IP Solutions
Solution for elimination of leased TDM lines
FAA systems depend on TDM-based services provided by telecom carriers (approx. 21,000 services – many using T1 Line connectivity). TDM services will phased out and migrated to IP over the next few years. The TDM services used in the NAS include voice, surveillance, weather, maintenance systems, and inter-facility / flight data a list that encompasses nearly the entire NAS.
Sunhillo’s Solution minimizes risk and provides a TDM to IP solution to meet the FAA’s needs as well as other industries that are transitioning from TDM leased lines. Using Sunhillo’s TDM to IP products like the RICI 5000 Gateway, Ventnor Concentrator, and LITE Software Suite will help ease the transition and provide a safe, reliable solution.
RICI 5000 Gateway - TDM to IP Product
Ventnor Concentrator - TDM to IP Product
The Ventnor Concentrator is intended to interface to a number of different devices such as NAV Aid Devices (VOR, RVR, ALS…), Weather Sensors (ASOS/AWOS), and Radar Flight Data Equipment. The Ventnor Concentrator supports up to 16 serial ports. Additionally, the Ventnor Concentrator has been designed to provide a CMHP RMLS connection that provides monitoring of the Ventnor Concentrator hardware, and individual channel configuration and status.
User Configurable conversion options:
SAI (Async) <–> CMHP
790 (HDLC) <–> CMHP
SAI (Async) <–> ActiveMQ
790 (HDLC) <–> ActiveMQ
SAI (Async) <–> SWIM
790 (HDLC) <–> SWIM

Legacy Interface Test Equipment (LITE) Software Suite
As part of the TDM to IP initiative, there has been a move to transition serial communication circuits to IP circuits. Sunhillo’s Legacy Interface Test Equipment (LITE) has been specifically designed to provide a platform for testing FAA Legacy serial interfaces and providing an environment to help in the transition from TDM to IP. The LITE is a fully configurable simulation tool.
Use Case Scenarios
As the Sun sets on the TDM leased lines Sunhillo has developed a product set to ease the transition as well as provide a final low risk solution to move to IP. As the future moves to IP only Sunhillo has developed a new platform that is highly powerful and designed for an IP only world.
