DSEI 2017

Get the troops talking [DSEI17D2]

13 September 2017

Building on its 30-year legacy of developing secure communications and connectivity solutions, Finland-based Bittium (Stand N3-157) is launching its Tough Comnode terminal at DSEI this week.

For mobile troops on the battlefield, the device has the significant benefit of functioning as, for example, a voice-over internet protocol (VoIP), an IP router and a symmetrical high-speed digital subscriber line repeater. It also provides session initiation protocol server functionalities of the tactical voice network for commercial VoIP terminals and enables the use of legacy combat net radios as part of the IP-based tactical communication system.

‘‘The versatile Bittium Tough Comnode terminal enables wireless and wired data transfer for mobile troops,’’ said Jari Sankala, senior vice-president of Bittium’s defence and security division. ‘‘With this new device, we expanded our tactical communications terminal offering and thus can cover the needs of the entire battlefield even better.’’
