Aeronautical Telecommunication Network
The Aeronautical Telecommunication Network (ATN) is an internetwork architecture that allows ground/ground, air/ground, and avionic data subnetworks to interoperate by adopting common interface services and protocols based on the ISO OSI Reference Model.
The European part of ATN used for ground/ground communications is represented by PENS.
