U.S. Air Force selects Cambium Networks secure, rapidly deployable wireless connectivity for use in theater

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., 23 March 2013. The U.S. Air Force has selected Cambium Networks’ point-to-point (PTP) 45600 High Capacity Line-of-Sight (HCLOS) radio for its Theater Deployable Communications (TDC PMO) program.

Supported by General Dynamics, TDC PMO will replace the company’s legacy Radio Frequency Module (RFM) backhaul radio with Cambium's theater-proven, agency-vetted PTP 45600 HCLOS radio to provide reliable and secure voice, video, and data functions for deployable warfighters and first response missions.

The TDC PMO communications network enables Air Force units to transmit information rapidly and securely via wireless, satellite, or wireline systems. A central goal of the TDC program is to provide the latest Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) technologies in cases that can be rapidly deployed anywhere in the world and tailored to meet specific military contingencies while reducing airlift and manpower requirements.

Selected, vetted, and tested as part of U.S. Air Force Electronic Service Center's (ESC) Innovative Challenge, the PTP 45600 elevates the range and throughput performance for TDC PMO terrestrial communications. The PTP 45600 is the only commercially available broadband wireless Fixed Network Element (F-NE) solution certified on the U.S. Department of Defense DISA UC-APL (i.e., JITC approved) and is considered the primary wireless transport solution for many theater-deployed situational awareness programs, says a company representative.

"Cambium's PTP 45600 is well established in DoD (Department of Defense) circles, having provided reliable communications for many situation-aware networks that protect the warfighter in theater," says Dan Ayer, vice president, General Dynamics Information Technology.  "The TDC PMO would only accept as its next RFK radio a device that was proven to be rugged and capable in the most extreme conditions."

The PTP 45600 supports stringent requirements and provides high connectivity and backhaul in even challenging high-interference and non-line-of-sight environments. PTP 45600 is UC-APL (JITC) certified and also met TDC PMO's requirement for J/F-12 certification and IPv6 support.
