Brazilian Airport Infrastructure Co. Selects Telvent for World Cup Preparations

February 16, 2011


Telvent, a global provider of IT solutions and business information services, announced that it has been awarded a contract by Infraero, the Brazilian Company for Airport Infrastructures.

Under the terms of the contract, Telvent will deliver a new, digital radio communications network to 18 Brazilian airports.

Infraero selected Telvent's communications technology because of the reliability and security it has demonstrated in deployments by AENA, Spain's global airport and air navigation services operator.

The standards-compliant Telvent platform affords privacy and security, and its high availability will improve communications efficiency and service to air travelers during routine airport operations at these Brazilian airports, company officials said.

With its robust functionality, Telvent’s solution ensures communications reliability in emergencies or events when a high level of coordination of activities and processes is necessary.

The system's demonstrated performance will help manage the significant air traffic associated with the 2014 World Cup tournament, recently awarded to Brazil, company officials said.

“This project reflects our commitment to Brazil and its infrastructure, destined to serve many world-class events in the future,” said Ignacio Gonzalez, Telvent's CEO, in a statement. “The Telvent telecommunications system selected by Infraero is designed to interface with other standardized information systems and enable effective joint communications among different entities and agencies.”

The modular design of the Telvent’s makes it scalable and a long-lived solution that Infraero will count on as Brazil's airport operations continue to grow, Gonzalez added.

This project is yet another achievement to Telvent as it adds to the portfolio of telecommunications solutions deployed worldwide to optimize management of airport functions, reduce operating costs, improve services to airport customers and enhance security of facilities and assets, according to company officials.

In December last year, Telvent was selected by the Shanxi Electric Power Company for the implementation of a new data acquisition system. This new system is expected to enable the company to address service outages more quickly, while also providing a more reliable network.
