KVM trends in air traffic management

Harmonised airspaces, SWIM and comprehensive networks increase the requirements air traffic managers have to their IT equipment. And how are the working conditions of controllers and ATSEPs? At World ATM Congress, Guntermann & Drunck will show their visitors solutions for these requirements.

Health management in all areas

In addition to safety and reliability, IT solutions need to provide optimal working conditions for air traffic controllers and ATSEPs. KVM equipment from Guntermann & Drunck (G&D) offers more than the simple switching and extending of computer signals. Computer and KVM operation is not only secured through a sophisticated redundancy and fallback system, but also by comprehensive, preventive monitoring. In air traffic control, KVM equipment can be applied in the most versatile ways

  • In towers to remove computers from the limited working spaces of controllers
  • In service management centres to use KVM to access all computers from computer-free workstations
  • In control centres to increase the capacity and the productivity of supervisors and ATSEPs
  • On the entire way through the airport to control the processes of baggage handling.

One of G&D’s most recent projects in the ATC industry is the renewal of the systems installed in the control centre of DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH in Langen, Germany. As one of Europe’s most modern, most important and biggest control centres, the building offers space for several hundred controllers and flight data specialists. In the new control centre, supervisors and administrators use KVM to make sure any equipment is available and working so that the controllers can focus on executing their demanding tasks without any interruptions.

Developed from three decades of experience

At the upcoming World ATM Congress in Madrid, Guntermann & Drunck will present their KVM devices with comprehensive management functions and fallback concepts. For decades, international air traffic controls like DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH, British NATS, Eurocontrol, Belgocontrol, Israel Airports Authority, SAKAERONAVIGATSIA Ltd. and many others trust in G&D’s equipment made in Germany. Guntermann & Drunck offer probably the largest KVM portfolio with a wide range of combination options. Developing innovative state-of-the-art devices motivates G&D to enthral their customers with special adjustments and developments coming from the field of air traffic control.  

Innovations, trends and future-oriented technologies

To develop solutions fitting the most diverse environments, G&D put their customers’ requirements first and offer many services free of charge like

  • Free loaned equipment
  • Consulting and planning of complex KVM installations
  • 36 months of warranty instead of the legally required 24 months
  • Preparation and support for complex installations
  • Personal technical customer support instead of being placed on hold
  • And much more

Experience KVM live

Within the Free Education programme, G&D will show lively examples of current KVM installations. Experienced members of the G&D team will explain the visitors how technologically sophisticated KVM technology keeps the airspace safe. The talk will take place at the Frequentis Aviation Arena, 11 March, 5:05 p.m.
Guntermann & Drunck GmbH are pioneers in the development of KVM equipment. The German manufacturer looks back on 30 years of experience within this field. Various products have been developed together with leading international ANSPs whose ATC installations are a source of constant inspiration and information for G&D.

The team of Guntermann & Drunck GmbH look forward to meeting visitors of WATM at stand 337. Here, interesting parties can discuss individual ideas, projects and their challenges directly with the team of KVM experts. Numerous references prove the confidence in the products of the German manufacturer.
