OnTime Networks secure French military radar deal

OnTime Networks has announced that it has received a contract from a leading international systems integrator in France to supply its rugged military grade CM-6900 1U height 19″ rack mountable Gigabit/10Gigabit Ethernet switch series for a military radar project.

The series is specifically designed to provide reliable, high-performance connectivity for extremely demanding size, weight and power constraints in harsh demanding environments such as at high altitude, extreme shock & vibration, extended temperatures, humidity, noisy EMI, and ‘dirty’ power quality.

Pål-Jørgen Kyllesø, CTO of OnTime Networks said: “The Cloudberry CM-6900-MIL 1U 19″ rack mounted Gigabit/10Gigabit Ethernet unit is a rugged layer 2/3 switch for military land, sea and air applications.

“This platform has a modular concept that provides the flexibility to tailor the unit to meet the need for different port and speed combinations either copper or fiber or 1Gb/s or 10Gb/s.”

Under the terms of the contract, shipments are scheduled to begin in early 2018.

OnTime Networks’ CEO Øyvind Holmeide commented: “The contract builds on OnTime Networks’ strong and successful track record in building fully rugged and advanced network system components.

“Surveillance radar systems are a critical part of national defence systems, and our role is it to ensure that our network provides the highest possible mission readiness.”
