Bittium exhibits new Bittium Tough SDR™ tactical radios and Bittium Tough Comnode™ terminal at DSEI defense exhibition
Oulu, Finland, September 11, 2017 – Bittium will exhibit its products and solutions for tactical communications at DSEI defense exhibition in London, United Kingdom on September 12-15. At the exhibition, Bittium will showcase for the first time Bittium Tough SDR product family, which was launched in August. The product family includes Bittium Tough SDR Handheld™, tactical handheld radio for individual soldiers, and Bittium Tough SDR Vehicular™, tactical radio for vehicle installations. Also showcased will be the versatile Bittium Tough Comnode™ terminal that was launched last week.
Bittium Tough SDR product family expands Bittium’s product offering from the current Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network™ (TAC WIN), used for forming a tactical broadband mobile IP backbone network, to individual soldier and vehicular level tactical radios. This enables bringing broadband data transfer and voice to all mobile troops starting from brigade level and all the way across the battlefield.
Bittium Tough Comnode fulfils the data transfer needs for mobile troops by functioning for example as a VoIP phone (Voice over IP), an IP router (Internet Protocol), and an SHDSL repeater (Symmetrical High-speed Digital Subscriber Line). Additionally, Bittium Tough Comnode also provides SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) server functionalities of the tactical voice network for commercial VoIP terminals and enables using also legacy Combat Net Radios (CNR) as part of the IP-based tactical communication system (Radio over IP, RoIP).
Also the following will be exhibited at DSEI:
- Bittium TAC WIN is a high-performance wireless network solution enabling quick and flexible construction of link, point-to-multipoint and MANET (Mobile Ad Hoc Network) connections. The system offers broadband IP data transfer for mobile troops in all parts of the battlefield and also connects them to landline networks.
- Bittium Tough VoIP product family’s products enable tactical IP calls and broadband data transfer even in demanding conditions. Products are also easily integrated to existing IP infrastructure. The latest product in the product family is Bittium Tough VoIP Service™ software product, which can be used to connect both fixed data network users and wireless tactical data network users to the same voice service network.
- Bittium Tough Mobile™ is a secure and strong Android-based LTE smartphone combining the latest information security and commercial device technologies. Bittium Tough Mobile incorporates a hardware-based security platform, which enables strong device security as well as deep integration of both customers' own and third party software security solutions. This dedicated hardware is essential for building layered mobile security solutions. In addition, Bittium Tough Mobile’s features include for example a programmable Push-to-Talk button (PTT), glove-usable 5” full HD display, IP67 level water and dust protection, and MIL-STD-810G level shock resistance.
All the products are compatible with each other, are based on the latest software and device technologies, and enable comprehensive broadband data transfer and IP calls across the battlefield. The products offer diverse connectivity options also to third-party equipment and systems.
