AMSTERDAM (Sept. 10, 2010) – Rockwell Collins has teamed with ND SatCom to integrate the SkyWAN 7000 series modem into the SWE-DISH CommuniCase® Technology (CCT) platform, providing a new network processor for Rockwell Collins’ CCT-based products.
As the newest modem in the CCT family, SkyWAN brings one of the most advanced and powerful multi-frequency Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) network platforms on the market and supports voice, data and video with data rates up to 10Mbps. With its unique power and bandwidth efficiency, SkyWAN supports small and mobile terminals such as the SWE-DISH CCT120 Suitcase®. Thanks to their modular concepts, CCT-based products provide the end-user with unique benefits, including the ability to change bands, antenna size or modems in the field within minutes. CCT-based products are cost-effective and flexible solutions for compact, quick-to-air, portable satellite communication (SATCOM).
“The integration of the SkyWAN modem increases Rockwell Collins’ success with SWE-DISH CommuniCase Technology,” said Alan Caslavka, vice president and general manager of Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence Solutions at Rockwell Collins. “The addition of SkyWAN to the CCT Suitcase terminal family allows us to offer even more powerful network solutions for corporate, government and military customers. It also enables customers already using SkyWAN in their network to take advantage of the modular CCT concept.”
