MAPS™ ED137 Telephone Emulator for VoIP Air Traffic Management

Welcome to another issue of GL Communications newsletter providing information and insight into our voice communication solution MAPS™ ED137 Telephone for VoIP Air Traffic Management (ATM).

MAPS™ ED137 Telephone Emulator for VoIP Air Traffic Management


Voice communications on ATM networks, whether it is Air-Ground (A-G) or Ground-Ground (G-G) calls, are being upgraded to use VoIP technology as per EUROCAE (European Organization for Civil Aviation Equipment) ED-137 inter-operability standards.

GLs MAPS™ ED-137 Telephone can simulate G-G calls as per EUROCAE ED-137B Volume 2 and ED-137C Volume 2 Telephone standards. The software provides complete control over call scenarios and the ability to customize network parameters for signaling and VoIP traffic.

  • Generate more than 500 simultaneous calls
  • Simulate hundreds of user agents from a single node
  • Simulate the functions of Controller Working Position (CWP) entities in G-G telephone calls
