GE Extends Range of High Performance, Rugged, Secure Networking Routers

GE Intelligent Platforms today extended its family of high performance, rugged, routing and network security appliances designed for military/aerospace deployment in harsh environments. The RTR2GE and RTR4GE feature two- and four Gigabit Ethernet ports respectively, complementing the 8-port RTR8GE and allowing customers to choose the optimum configuration for a wide range of network topologies.

All three rugged, security-focused network routers feature the comprehensive field-tested Junos® operating system from Juniper Networks®, a recognized leader in providing secure network solutions to the commercial, industrial and military/aerospace markets. The firewall, intrusion prevention and detection, and extensive quality of service (QoS) capabilities of Junos enable secure IPv4/IPv6 connectivity for military vehicles, aircraft and forward operating bases supporting net-centric operations. The RTR2GE, RTR4GE and RTR8GE are integrated in a SWaP-optimized enclosure that meets the demanding environmental requirements of military/aerospace applications.

“A key challenge in today’s network-centric military is ensuring networks are secure and able to fight off cyber threats that can compromise data and communications,” said Rod Rice, General Manager, Military/Aerospace Products at GE Intelligent Platforms. “The military requires similar technology to what is available in the commercial world - but the unique requirements of battlefield networking means that it cannot deploy readily available commercial solutions. The combination of industry-leading commercial networking technology from Juniper Networks with GE knowledge and expertise in building solutions for rugged environments is a perfect solution.”
