Xiphos™Provides LTE Portable Broadband Networks for Battlefield, Critical Infrastructure and Emergency Response SituationsRESTON, Va., May 2, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Oceus Networks Inc., a leading provider of broadband solutions to government agencies, today announced the availability of a new fourth-generation (4G) Long Term Evolution (LTE) family of fully interoperable solutions that enable high-speed, high-capacity voice, video and data transmissions for military personnel and first responders. Ruggedized for extreme environments and situations, Xiphos™ systems provide turnkey, easily deployable broadband networks wherever traditional communication infrastructures are unavailable or compromised. The Xiphos platform was announced and displayed at the 2011 Department of Defense Intelligence Information Systems (DoDIIS) Worldwide Conference in Detroit, Michigan, at Oceus Networks' booth #266. Xiphos is a COTS-based family of solutions that dynamically delivers 4G broadband to enable many networked applications in demand by "edge"-positioned personnel, including high-definition video, massive voice and data delivery, embedded standards-based interoperable cellular functionality and other connectivity crucial to mission-critical operations. Designed to overlay existing government networking infrastructures, Xiphos networks are made to meet advanced communications needs no matter how advanced the required capability or how isolated the surrounding terrain. The Xiphos solution can also scale within any agency's architecture, from a compact configuration that provides high data throughput to a few targeted users within a defined coverage area, to high capacity macro configurations that serve a large number of users with a wide coverage area and extremely high data rates. This is done simply by adding more radio units and/or by linking together a number of Xiphos systems. All systems interoperate with full mobility functionality and embedded priority and preemption capabilities. The Xiphos offerings are an extension of Oceus Networks' mission to provide its customers with standards-based situational awareness and collaboration solutions to make fast and accurate decisions in the field.
