LGS, a subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent, and Redcom Laboratories, a manufacturer of digital and IP-enabled telecommunications systems, are working together on a system that will deliver secure wireless communications on the move.
These new capabilities will support major US Government initiatives for deployable, secure communications that leverage the capabilities and interoperability of commercial cellular and VoIP technologies, said LGS.
According to LGS, the joint, fully interoperable system will combine the LGS Tactical Base Station Router (TacBSRTM) multi-band GSM cellular system and the Redcom SLICE 2100 voice switching system, powered by Redcom’s TRANSip technology suite which enables integrated VoIP and TDM interoperability in a single platform.
Ron Iverson, CEO of LGS, said: Working with Redcom’s JITC-certified products, LGS is able to leverage its strong experience in providing mobile wireless communications equipment and add to that a level of secure encryption that makes this solution set particularly attractive for tactical and battlefield usage.
Klaus Gueldenpfennig, president of Redcom, said: By combining the LGS TacBSR with Redcom’s SLICE 2100, we can truly deliver to the soldier a converged communications solution set. This solution set is reliable and is standards-based. Soldiers can now have secure, end-to-end, wired-to-wireless communications and have secure interoperability with US Joint Forces fielded TDM and VoIP technologies.
