With rugged design, Tough Comnode is easy to install in different environments and is portable by soldiers on the battlefield. The terminal is compatible with the software defined radio-based Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network which is used by Finnish forces for broadband tactical data transfer, and offers connectivity options for third-party equipment and systems.

Tough Comnode also enables using legacy combat net radios as part of the IP-based tactical communication system.
