4G networks for US Navy

Cambium Networks and Broadband Antenna Tracking Systems (BATS Wireless) are to provide a wireless point-to-point (PTP) radio and antenna tracking solution which will be incorporated as part of a 4G mobile communications networking project for the US Navy.

The project, being led by Oceus Networks and using its Xiphos family of mobile 4G LTE network systems, will see the system to provide onboard and ship-to-ship broadband data and communications piloted by the Navy as the first US Department of Defense operational deployment of Fourth Generation Long-Term Evolution (4G LTE).

The Cambium and BATS Wireless systems will provide a ruggedised, self-optimising wireless network for ship-to-shore, inter-ship or intra-ship broadband applications.

The systems also allow for a number of mobility scenarios, including fixed (tower to tower, building to building), fixed to mobile (ship to shore, air to ground), and fully mobile deployments (ship to ship, air to mobile command).

“By incorporating BATS antenna tracking capabilities and Cambium’s strong and reliable PTP system into our Xiphos-based solution, we’re able to offer defense customers a broadband solution that will allow ships to communicate with each other even in the harshest ocean conditions,” said Cal Shintani, chief growth officer, Oceus Networks.
