Finland, Bittium sign agreement

9th November 2018 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Bittium Wireless and the Finnish Defence Forces have signed a framework agreement for Bittium's Tough Comnode terminals and related accessories, Bittium announced on 5 November.

With a maximum value of €8.3 million and covering the years 2018-2022, the agreement will allow the Finnish Defence Forces to issue separate purchase orders in several batches during the validity of the framework agreement.

Bittium Tough Comnode will fulfil the data transfer needs of the Finnish Defence Forces’ mobile troops by functioning as a voice over IP phone, an Internet Protocol router and a symmetrical high-speed digital subscriber line repeater. The terminals will be used by all three military branches.

The man-portable rugged Tough Comnode is compatible with the software defined radio-based Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network system used by Finnish Defence Forces for broadband tactical communications.

The terminal offers diverse connectivity options also to third-party equipment and systems, including enabling the use of legacy combat net radios as part of the IP-based tactical communication system (Radio over IP).
