Finland’s armed forces have selected EB Elektrobit Corp’s Tactical Wireless IP Network as the basis for a communications network.
Finland’s defense forces require advanced situational awareness in the field, and forces need effective co-ordination and communication infrastructure, says Col. Juha Mattila, Finnish Defence Forces, C4IS Division. That growing data flow requires the digitalization of command and control systems, therefore high capacity wireless IP backbone solutions, like the EB Tactical Wireless IP network, build the core of our digitalization and enables the creation of a tactical communications network, he said.
Because the Tactical Wireless IP Network is based on “software, defined radio,” the product “is versatile, upgradeable and easy to adapt,” EB says. In addition, it enables a mesh network solution with high data rate and automatic network configuration required by battle groups on the move, the company says.
