The purpose of this wiki is to support the sharing of information between the stakeholders of the Data Link Performance Monitoring Function (DPMF). The DPMF was established in response to the allocation of roles by the European Commission to the various European organisations. The purpose of the DPMF is to monitor the performance of the European data link system to allow stakeholders to understand how well the system is performing and to provide insight as to why the system is performing the way it is. It is intended to support many different stakeholder communities and as such will provide performance data at different levels of detail and from different perspectives. It does not address the monitoring of radio interference on the frequencies used by data link; this is the responsibility of the Network manager Radio Frequency Function. The work of the DPMF is overseen by a stakeholder consultation group called the Data link Performance Monitoring Group (DPMG) which meets twice a year. Information is shared with DPMG members via a Onesky extranet site. This wiki is intended to support the broader data link community.
Stakeholders are encouraged to provide information about their activities that will be of interest to the wider community by creating their own pages in the areas that have been created for each type of stakeholder (click on the type of stakeholder in the box above). A short introduction on how to use the wiki is provided as well as a short video and of course for the wiki to operate successfully there are a few simple rules that all users are expected to follow.
Note EUROCONTROL continues to support interop testing and information is provided on this site for convenience although it is not part of the DPMF activities.
