General Dynamics Taps Juniper for U.S. Army WIN-T Program

Juniper Networks is providing network routing hardware, software, technological expertise and engineering support to General Dynamics C4 Systems, the prime contractor developing the U.S. Army s Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) program. WIN-T is the U.S. Army s fully mobile, tactical communications network system, designed to provide reliable, secure and seamless video, data, imagery and voice services that enable decisive, on-the-move (OTM) information sharing among deployed forces. Specifically, Juniper has been working with the General Dynamics WIN-T program team on integrating Juniper router technology into a solution that supports the WIN-T program s need for Increment 2 OTM communications between commanders, staff, and functional units via line-of-sight, satellite, air-to-ground, and ground-to-ground networks. Juniper's collaboration with General Dynamics has included the definition of interfaces between routers and radios necessary to support OTM functionality that will enable secure network access for defense personnel and their IP-related assets (live video, voice, data and other transmissions) in real time as they move from one operational theater to another. Financial terms were not disclosed.
