Bittium exhibits new Bittium Tough SDR™ tactical radios and Bittium Tough Comnode™ terminal at Defence Communications event

Oulu, Finland, September 25, 2017 – Bittium will exhibit its newest products and solutions for tactical communications at Defence Communications event in Krakow, Poland on September 26-27. At the event Bittium will showcase the recently launched Bittium Tough SDR product family, which 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.

At the event Bittium also has a speaker slot with the topic “Considerations for national certification of software defined tactical communications”. The presentation will cover software based products and solutions used in tactical communications and their possibilities for national certification. Bittium’s speaker is Mr. Ilkka Uhari, European Sales Director, Defense & Security.

Products presented at the event:

  • 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).

The products are compatible with all Bittium’s tactical communications products and solutions, combine 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.
