Thales's Nexium offer aims to design and deploy complex communications systems architectures that are available at any time, in any circumstances and especially in crisis situations. The solution guarantees network resilience, which mean they are able to resist impacts. These are networks for high-level, end-to-end transmissions: they are efficient, long-lasting, secure and interoperable.

The Nexium offer is further proof of Thales's expertise as an architect of top-flight communication systems.

The shift towards automated, paperless communications has given networks an increasingly prominent role to play in how States, armies, businesses and citizens work and operate. Organisations' ever growing reliance on networks has made them our societies' core systems. Moreover, the many interconnections necessary for exchanging information can be new risks in the face of either intentional threats (cyber-threats, for example) or accidental threats (such as severe storms).

Thales's Nexium offer is at once an economical solution - using standard products to optimise costs - and a customisable one, letting users choose the line-of-business applications best suited to their operational requirements.

This offer is based on three main approaches:

* Resistance to threats: the network is perfectly resilient and capable of resisting even very high-level physical threats. Thales's expertise has provided guaranteed device redundancy, energy self-sufficiency, effective control over physical access and specific transmission media.

* Flow management and security: Nexium offers an intelligent network that not only delivers powerful protection for information, but is also capable of allocating the resources actually available to the most vital flows first.

* Network availability and efficiency: Nexium includes an innovative network supervision approach, capable of managing network availability and efficiency on a continuous basis and in step with the developments of threats, while at the same time guaranteeing network security.

"One of Thales's strong points is its integration platforms, which can be used to simulate the most complex environments and test network resilience. That way, Thales can deliver the best solutions to meet the armies' needs," explained Pascale Sourisse, Thales Senior Vice President, C4I Defence and Security Systems. "With Nexium, Thales has made full use of its experience and thorough knowledge of networks in order to work as closely as possible with armed and security forces on the ground."
