Oceus Networks Demonstrates Proven Mobile 4G LTE Network at Army’s NIE 12.1 Evaluation to Support U.S. DoD’s Move to Tactical Advanced Cellular Communications
Oceus Networks announced today that at the Army’s recent Network Integration Exercise (NIE) 12.1, the Company successfully demonstrated the capabilities of its market leading Xiphos™, a family of mobile 4G LTE tactical cellular communications networks.
“Xiphos networks provide high capacity secure wireless broadband to the warfighter at the edge,” said Douglas C. Smith, President and CEO, Oceus Networks. “Oceus’ mobile ruggedized networks can be installed in tactical warfighter vehicles, placed aboard ships, mounted on UAV’s and other aerial platforms, and can be soldier back-packed into austere environments — wherever robust high-speed voice, video and data communications capabilities are needed.”
Held at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, a company of soldiers belonging to the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division leveraged the Oceus 4G LTE commercial-off-the shelf (COTS) networks to use smart phone and tablet applications for real-time streaming media, voice over internet protocol, position location indicator (PLI), email, and instant messaging to gain improved situational awareness capabilities. Specifically, as an industry NIE 12.1 SUE (System Under Evaluation), Oceus integrated its networks with existing army programs of record including WIN-T, NETT Warrior, JTRS GMR and the WNW waveform. The Oceus 4G LTE Xiphos network was also seamlessly integrated into its 3G QuicLINK network, advancing Oceus integration efforts from the previous NIE 11.2.
