Vocality, a global network router manufacturer and supplier of voice and data network routers to the satellite communications market, has been selected as the underlying routing platform inside Cobham’s range of Satellite-Optimized Portable GSM/3G/LTE Cellular Communications Kits called “EXPLORER Mobile Net.”
Cobham has designed EXPLORER Mobile Net as a fully integrated, one-case tactical cellular network solution for private, reliable cellular communications—for use in the most demanding of environments and locations where previously thought impossible. Within a single kit, EXPLORER Mobile Net operates up to two Picocells simultaneously, plus WiFi. Users may deploy one, or any two, of the supported cellular frequency options. This range and cost-effective functionality is unrivaled in today’s marketplace.
In searching for high performance, power efficient, low cost tactical IP routers, Cobham selected Vocality’s BASICS IP Router as its network routing platform. “Mobile and cellular networks are important drivers of satellite services—and the advent of smart devices, including Vocality, opens new market opportunities,” said Henrik Nørrelykke, vice president of Cobham SATCOM Land Business.
“Vocality has had a long time relationship alongside Cobham supporting satcom services. We are proud to be integrated as part of Cobham’s leading-edge solutions for cellular communications,” said Paul Moskowitz, vice president of Vocality.
