9th March 2017 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Harris Corporation will provide Taiwan with its IP-based Voice Communication System for the 21st Century (VCS21) to support the country's military air defence system, the company announced on 7 March.

VCS21 is a next-generation, VoIP communication system designed to deliver net-centric voice communications that reduce dependency on traditional point-to-point communications, while supporting an efficient transition to IP-based communications.

The system will be installed at multiple facilities throughout Taiwan and will include 140 controller working positions that can access radio and telephony sites across the region.

Ed Zoiss, president, Harris Electronic Systems, said: 'The Harris VCS21 system now supports air defence operations in Asia along with [air traffic management] operations in Europe and North America. Harris VCS21 will be a key enabler for countries seeking to modernise and grow their networks to address the worldwide increase in air traffic.'
