U.S. Department of Defense deploys Oceus Networks' Xiphos 4G LTE for Navy pilot

RESTON, Va., 31 March 2012. Oceus Networks announced that the U.S. Navy has selected the company's Xiphos mobile communications networking solution for a pilot for a new Navy portable maritime C2 system.

The pilot will be conducted over the next year with the Kearsarge Expeditionary Strike Group, homeported in Norfolk, Va. The Xiphos tactical cellular solution will provide wireless broadband for access to Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) data for intra-ship communications over the horizon, and inter-ship communications via commercial hand-held devices.

Oceus' mobile ruggedized networks can be placed aboard ships, installed in tactical warfighter vehicles, mounted on UAV's and other aerial vehicles, and can soon be soldier back-packed into austere environments.

The Xiphos family of ruggedized and mobile 4G LTE networks, more commonly known as full-featured cellular base stations, currently supports up to hundreds of simultaneous sessions, has data rates scalable from 37 to 350 Mbps, and has a terrestrial range up to 62 miles radius per node. The Xiphos family of systems are built on the 4G LTE commercial standards.
