REDCOM Ruggedized Communications Package (RCP)

A REDCOM Ruggedized Communications Package (RCP) is a rugged transport case that contains a REDCOM switch (such as a SLICE® 2100™, SLICE® IP, SLICE® or HDX) along with a wide range of peripheral component options and encryption devices. REDCOM’s portable and interoperable RCPs are designed for quick and easy deployment to tent cities, mining camps, oil rigs and disaster sites for emergency response communications.

RCP Benefits



Contained in a rugged transit case, REDCOM RCPs are easily transportable into and out of any type of vehicle. Each RCP is equipped with convenient handles that facilitate a one or two-person lift.


Field deployable

REDCOM RCPs are built to withstand the harsh conditions of airlift, seaborne transport, and off-road transportation. The transit cases meet stringent military specifications for impact and vibration. REDCOM solutions are installed in ships, trucks, Humvees, communications shelters, and tent cities.



Interlocking transit cases allow REDCOM RCPs to stack easily on top of each other with a firm grip. Users can group network elements into the same footprint to conserve space and maximize system capacity.


Slide out chassis

The slide out chassis provides easy access to RCP components for routine maintenance and cleaning. Components can also be easily removed from the transportable case and placed into a rack mount.


Convenient storage options

REDCOM RCPs offer several convenient storage compartments to hold cabling, documentation and tools. Optional storage compartments include snap-on zippered pouches for each end cap and a 2U slide out storage drawer built into the frame


Cable distribution system

REDCOM's simple user interface allows fast and easy upgrades, and using REDCOM's modular cabling system you can easily reconfigure your system in the field to meet the needs of evolving mission requirements.


Customize your RCP to meet your specific needs

REDCOM RCPs are available in multiple configurations and can be customized with the specific communications equipment you need to fulfill your unique project requirements. 

The RCPs shown on this page are examples of commonly deployed configurations. Call 1-585-924-6500 and consult with our communications experts to determine your optimal RCP configuration.
