In air traffic control, real-time data distribution is vital for safe operations. However, managing multiple computers and screens can lead to distractions and inefficiencies which is further exacerbated by limited space. To mitigate this, IP KVM technology gives ATCOs real-time access and control of multiple computers from one location, enhancing efficiency and situational awareness. IP KVM systems securely transmit data and peripherals over long distances, enabling critical assets to be moved away from the control room to reduce heat and noise. This not only saves space but also ensures uninterrupted focus on critical tasks.

Airports maintain various control rooms staffed round-the-clock, which are essential to airport operations. Whether it is delivering critical data to air traffic control towers and apron control centers, optimizing baggage handling processes, or informing passengers through terminal information and signage, IP KVM technology gives seamless access to distributed systems and servers from a centralized console. With multiple levels of system redundancy, backup, and failsafe operation, IP KVM ensures continuous and mission-critical operation, thereby enhancing the efficiency and reliability of airport activities.

IP KVM technology plays a pivotal part in remote tower operations by providing controllers with seamless access and control over critical computer systems and infrastructure from centralized control rooms. With real-time monitoring and management capabilities, IP KVM solutions enhance situational awareness by allowing controllers to access video feeds, radar displays, and weather information remotely. Offering flexibility, scalability, and redundancy, IP KVM ensures operational continuity and security, empowering ATCOs to efficiently manage air traffic and optimize airspace utilization while adhering to regulatory standards.

What Does IP KVM Deliver?
Secure Desktop Management

The importance of a control center necessitates rigorous security protocols. Operational effectiveness depends on the capacity to identify and neutralize all security risks in advance. By using KVM technology, computers can be relocated to a secure server room, preventing unauthorized access and restricting the use of storage devices.

Visual Flexibility Icon Adder Technology
Visual Flexibility

A proprietary video codec tailored for IP KVM applications in air traffic management ensures pixel-perfect video quality, high frame rates, and super low latency when reading critical ATC information and interacting with ATC systems. It uniquely supports traditional ATC video resolutions in a single device, offering versatile compatibility for various display setups.


IP KVM solutions provide ANSPs with improved robustness via automated switch-over processes for network, administration, and power for continuous connectivity for ATCOs. Administration servers can be configured in primary/secondary or cluster setups, ensuring maximum resiliency for continuous function.

Efficient Data Management

An intuitive management system, developed with ANSPs, facilitates device management, user access rights, custom channels, and presets, alongside peripheral management and audit trails for device status and user access. 

Last Frame Froze Icon Adder Technology
Last Frame Frozen

In the time-sensitive realm of air traffic control, where each moment matters, ATCOs must promptly be informed to any disruptions to their live system. Adder’s Last Frame Frozen technology promptly identifies any system signal disruptions, automatically holding the last captured frame from the visual system.

De-Clutter the Workstation

The presentation and management of data by operators significantly influences the effectiveness of air traffic control rooms. KVM solutions enable the simultaneous display of multiple data streams from various sources in real-time, all managed through a centralized, single keyboard and mouse.

Alb Control
Alb Control

AlbControl operates and controls Albanian air space in accordance with international and national standards of safety and quality on the air navigation field. A major update to Tirana International Airport (TIA) was needed to increase airspace capacity and maintain European air safety and quality standards.

Lisbon Airport
Lisbon Airport

Aeroporto de Lisboa is an international airport located 7km northeast of the city center of Lisbon. As a result of ongoing expansion, with the ultimate goal to transform Lisbon Portela into a four runway airport capable of hosting over 40 million people a year, a new airport control center was built.

Heathrow Airport
Heathrow Airport

Heathrow is Europe's largest airport and one of the world's top international aviation hubs. Updating and modernizing a busy control room presented Heathrow with an opportunity to address the ergonomic, operational and efficiency challenges that operators were experiencing.
