Bittium Tough VoIP product introduction
Bittium Tough VoIP Service™
Bittium Tough VoIP Service is a distributed VoIP service network for tactical environment. It creates a highly resilient, distributed digital voice service in a tactical network. The service can rapidly adapt to changes in the network. Network can be split or merged while maintaining the service available for all clients that accessible. When network islands merge with the network, the clients will have core network connection automatically.
Native support for MANET
Seamless connectivity across tactical and fixed networks
Easy integration to other SIP based VoIP services and phones
Bittium Tough VoIP Softphone is a VoIP client for tactical communications. Softphone provides all Bittium Tough VoIP Service functions to PC and smartphone users from an easy to use graphical user interface. Softphone supports SIP based call signaling, instant messaging and meeting rooms. Features like Push-To-Talk button and remote access to legacy Combat Net Radios (CNRs) have been specifically designed to meet the needs of tactical communications.
Easy to use
Functionalities for tactical network, such as Push-To-Talk button (PTT) and group messaging
Interoperability with third party SIP services in addition to Bittium Tough VoIP Service functions
Bittium Tough VoIP Field Phone is a tactical Voice over IP (VoIP) phone for advanced military communications. It can be easily integrated into customer's existing or future tactical communication IP infrastructure, both wireless and wired. The phone is SIP V2 VoIP client that provides interoperability with other SIP clients and server implementations available in the defense market.
The product meets the requirements of tactical environments where network services may not be present or where the network topology is constantly changing (e.g. MANET). Bittium Tough VoIP Field Phone incorporates functionality that enables introduction of VoIP services in dynamic self-forming networks without servers. Bittium Tough VoIP Field Phones provides ease of use and reliability of voice services in all circumstances – with minimal bandwidth utilization.
No servers required – no single point of failure SIP server interoperability (e.g., Asterisk)
Provides standard SIP based VoIP peer2peer calls with prioritized group call modes
Automatic and real-time regrouping of clients and their phonebooks for each group of nodes
Calls channeled through the tactical data radio network as multicast-traffic with compressing vocoders utilized minimizing the need of data bandwidth for voice
Automatic and real-time update of phonebooks on clients showing user roles rather than phone numbers
Calls can be diverted outside the tactical environment if SIP service is available and configured to allow that
Dynamic phonebook contains all current roles in the network in real time
Settings and role definitions are not erased in power down, enabling plug-and-play operation and fast deployment
Role definition for each user, no need to remember numbers
Fully rugged and environmentally shielded
EMI MIL-STD 461F (RE 102, RS 103) Ground, Army and MIL-STD 1275D compliance
MIL grade connectors, cables, head-sets and hand-sets available
Through the Bittium Tough VoIP Network Extender's SHDSL connectivity, an IP network can be extended over long distances using conventional field wire. The Network Extender unit supports Ethernet transport over single, dual or four SHDSL channels.
The Bittium Tough VoIP Network Extender is a self-healing and self-configuring unit, which automatically and transparently adapts to available network services. This solution is not dependent on the availability of network services, such as DHCP, enabling access to voice and data services regardless of the network service status.
