AIS system solution - design principles

AIS system solution - design principles


All AIS components comply with IALA standards and other relevant standards and recommendations.

Methods of communication

To communicate between AIS physical shore stations, AIS service management functions and User access points or Logical Shore Stations we can use different methods of communication dependent on customer requirements. The most utilised method is IP based communication networks (WAN/LAN) based on proprietary networks, leased lines, dial-up lines or even the Internet.


A series of standardised modules are developed making our AIS infrastructure a natural choice for a single AIS base station system as well as for national networks consisting of hundreds of AIS Base Station sites.


The communication solution combines minimum data delay, maximum reliability and optimised communication bandwidth efficiency. This prevents unexpected bottle-necks when upgrading from small, local test installations to large national networks.


The flexibility of the system components gives the users the ability to build a system with any level of availability by redundant equipment and alternative data communication paths. Critical components are designed to run in parallel to optimise service availability.

Simple customization

All our AIS infrastructure components are designed in accordance with these design principles providing simple customization.
