EB Announces "Tough VoIP Power Over Ethernet Injector" for Military

EB (Elektrobit Corporation) introduced a network-agnostic solution that provides PoE-supported data interfaces to tactical military communications equipment.

The EB Tough VoIP Power over Ethernet (PoE) Injector, which is a complementary accessory to its Tough VoIP product portfolio, has the capability to utilize vehicular power supplies for PoE-supported military communications gear. The device can combine vehicular power supplies in the voltage range of 10-30V DC with regular Ethernet data, while providing a PoE-supported Ethernet connection for user devices -- whether they are EB Tough VoIP products or third party equipment.

"We've seen similar Power over Ethernet accessories used in traditional commercial markets, yet recognized the need to bring this type of solution to the niche military communications space," said Mikko Viitaniemi, senior manager, Defense Products, EB Wireless Solutions. "Our goal was to improve the interoperability of different equipment and platforms in tactical communications environments by developing and extending the Tough VoIP product portfolio. We believe today's introduction of the rugged and durable Tough VoIP PoE Injector meets this objective."
