Bittium announced on October 3, 2018 that the Finnish Minister of Defence Jussi Niinistö had authorized the Finnish Defence Forces Logistics Command to enter into a Framework Agreement with Bittium Wireless Ltd on the purchase of Bittium Tough Comnode™ terminals and related accessories.
Bittium Tough Comnode™ will fulfil the data transfer needs of the Finnish Defence Forces’ mobile troops by functioning for example as a VoIP phone (Voice over IP), an IP router (Internet Protocol), and an SHDSL repeater (Symmetrical High-speed Digital Subscriber Line). The terminals will be used by all three military branches.
Bittium Tough Comnode™ is rugged and easy to install in different environments, and is also portable by soldiers on the battlefield. The terminal is compatible with the software defined radio based Bittium Tactical Wireless IP Network™ (TAC WIN) system, which is meant for broadband tactical communications and is used by the Finnish Defence Forces. The terminal offers diverse connectivity options also to third-party equipment and systems. Bittium Tough Comnode™ also enables using legacy Combat Net Radios (CNR) as part of the IP-based tactical communication system (Radio over IP, RoIP).
