NET Receives New Order From General Dynamics for the Army’s WIN-T Program
General Dynamics C4 Systems has placed a new order for Network Equipment Technologies's NX1000 platform for voice, video and data in the Army's Warfighter Information Network-Tactical program.
Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) is the Army's primary battlefield communications network produced by General Dynamics. The WIN-T system will use Network Equipment Technologies's (NET) NX1000 multiservice networking platform to interface to the Standardized Tactical Entry Point of the Defense Information Systems Network.
Gary Lau, president of NET Federal, a subsidiary of Network Equipment Technologies, said: "Warfighters and commanders need high-bandwidth, self-forming networks to support highly mobile missions. The NX1000 is part of the equipment suite that provides on-the-move enterprise networking, enabling mobile battle command over large distances. This mobile, tactical, high-speed network is a key part of the Army's modernization program."
