Integrated Communications for Maritime Applications
REDCOM solutions are ideal for shipboard communications and have been installed on ships and submarines, including the Virginia Class (United States Navy) and Astute Class (Royal Navy). REDCOM received an “Outstanding Supplier” Award for their work on the Royal Navy’s Astute Class Submarine Internal Communications System (ICS).
Sample Integrated Maritime Communications Package
The REDCOM SLICE product family’s small footprint, and powerful state-of-the-art telephony system, is a good choice when space is at a premium. REDCOM’s SLICE, SLICE IP, and SLICE 2100 are 1U high and may be rack mounted; while the smaller SLICE 2100 Micro can fit on a desktop.
SLICE’s complete feature set including conferencing, transfer, callback, and call detail recording. REDCOM’s ISDN BRI CommandSet’s handset Push-to-Talk (PTT) button keys the transmitter of connected VHF or SSB radios. Calls may be connected world-wide by using a TracPhone satellite connection while at sea, or a dock-side phone line may be used in port.
The SLICE can support up to 48 analog line circuits, 4 BRI-S line circuits, and 2 digital (E1/T1) spans which operate as a domestic or international gateway. The SLICE 2100 is a hybrid IP/TDM platform that provides Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) while maintaining connectivity to legacy interfaces. REDCOM designs integrated custom solutions to meet your specific needs.
