Juniper Releases Secure Mobile Router with Military Specs

Juniper Networks released a new mobile secure router, the LN1000, for military, public safety, SmartGrid, Utilities/Energy and other field-based networks.

The new edge access router is packaged in a ruggedized blade format and it features the industry's first 8 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) port and provides radio router protocol support with hardware based queuing and an integrated intrusion detection and prevention system.

Juniper said this router's small size and energy efficiency enable it to be embedded in highly demanding, mobile network and sensor applications, such as military platforms, first responder and public safety vehicles, the Smart Grid, vehicular transportation systems, and a variety of oil/gas/mining exploration and energy/utility applications. The LN1000 supports secure connectivity in cars, trains, unmanned aviation vehicles and remote sensor and monitoring stations back to central command or operations centers.

Juniper first developed the LN1000 as a commercial off-the-shelf product that could support General Dynamics' efforts on the U.S. Army Warfighter Information Network Tactical (WIN-T) program.

It is compliant with both IPv4 and IPv6 protocols; and supports rigorous SWaP (Size, Weight and Power) specifications.
