Bittium receives Estonian order
Bittium will deliver a tactical communications system to the Estonian defence forces under a purchase order announced on 3 November.
The tactical communications system will be based on the Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network (TAC WIN) system and includes products from the Bittium Tough VoIP product family, including the Bittium Tough VoIP Service software product.
The company will also provide related integration work under the order to enable new and legacy systems to be incorporated into a single system.
The equipment has been ordered as part of a wider project to improve the Estonian land forces’ Internet Protocol (IP) data transfer capability and availability. The TAC WIN system will be used to modernise the IP data transfer, develop the performance of the tactical data network, and diversify the wireless and wired connectivity of the system entity in use. The Tough VoIP products will upgrade the land forces’ IP voice service.
Deliveries will begin at the end of 2016.
