The rapid pace of innovation in commercial IT technologies including cloud, big data, machine learning, IoT and ISR provide new opportunities for defense organizations to achieve and maintain C5ISR overmatch – as long as networks and computing power can securely deliver those benefits to the network edge.

To achieve this, modern tactical networks must be deployable in reduced size, weight and power – while delivering ever more bandwidth and security – in order to keep up with additional user and mission demands while protecting networks from increasing cyber and EW threats.

Tactical networks must provide critical services when disconnected from HQ, cloud or upper echelon services while operating where wide area networking is slow or unreliable due to contested spectrum, difficult terrain, or lack of SATCOM.

Recent COTS advancements in rugged, embedded networking are ready to meet these challenges – delivering 10x the performance and major security advances.

Join experts Frank Columbus, Technical Marketing Engineer, Cisco Systems and Charlie Kawasaki, CTO, PacStar in a discussion into the latest small form factor, rugged, high speed switching and routing hardware technologies. 

This webinar is eligible for 1 CompTIA CEU for A+, Network+, Security+, Linux+, and Cloud+.
