    According to SJU capacity study performed in 2015 and which assumed the use of 4 VDL Mode 2 frequencies, the study expected saturation of this network to occur around 2025. Taking into account the availability of a fifth frequency, and the growing demand for ACARS data that is being transmitted over this network, a new capacity study will be performed in 2018 to re-evaluate the expected lifetime of VDL Mode 2. Beside VDL Mode 2, complementary communication technologies will be taken into account to support the sustainability of the VDL Mode 2 network.
