Feb. '17CompletedDec. '18

Implementing Partners

Leader: ENAV


The Implementation Project aims at preparing the transition from a PENS (Pan European Network Services) to NewPENS for which an enhancement of the current Italian IP network connectivity is required.

The ENAV national communication infrastructure Wide Area Network (WAN) is constituted by the ENET (Ethernet) network with POPs (Point of Presence) for the delivery of PENS services. In each POP, the related MSE (Security Modules for ENET) are also present to guarantee security for any connection and data transmission/reception.

PENS network, like other external networks, is connected to ENET POPs to exchange operational data for FMTP (Flight Message Transference Protocol), AMHS (Air Traffic Services Message Handling System) and RADAR (Radio Detection and Ranging) services and connections. In this way it ensures the proper security management of national ENET Programme that is aimed at deploying the infrastructures needed for the geographical transfer of operational services and the migration to the new net infrastructure.

This project will contribute to complete the installation of such security modules all over the national territory.
