There is a great deal of interest in advancing the netcentric battlefield; however, relatively little attention has been given to the infrastructure that supports multi-IP and multimedia applications. It seemed that planners lacked a clear understanding of bandwidth requirements and performance metrics, such as latency, all of which are highly influenced by spectrum and routing horsepower.
This week, at DSEi, Elbit Systems announced a family of multimedia routing solutions. Multimedia routing makes possible the seemless integration of voice, data and video into one cohesive stream.
The new multimedia routing family enables dismounted soldiers, armoured vehicles and deployed command posts users to share multimedia information in real-time, delivering mission-critical voice, data and video through tactical radio networks.
