Bittium Wireless and the Finnish Defence Forces Logistics Command are set to enter into a framework agreement on the purchase of Bittium Tough Comnode terminals and related accessories, Bittium announced on 3 October.

The agreement, which will cover the years 2018-2020, has the purchase authorisation of €8.3 million. The framework agreement will enable the Finnish Defence Forces to issue separate purchase orders in several batches during its validity period.

Bittium Tough Comnode will provide data transfer capabilities for 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 rugged Tough Comnode is man-portable and compatible with the software defined radio based Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network system used by the Finnish Defence Forces. It offers diverse connectivity options for third-party equipment and systems, and enables the use of legacy combat net radios as part of an IP-based tactical communication system.
