wheel-DODIP.jpgThe SLICE IP Command & Control is an advanced IP communication core powered by TRANSip®, REDCOM’s VoIP technology suite that provides an innovative IP communications solution. In its slim 1U platform the SLICE IP with TRANSip integrates key IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) elements delivering call management functionality — such as call setup, control and termination — through the industry standard architecture, Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), for seamless interoperability.

SLICE IP Features & Capabilities:

  • SIP-based VoIP capabilities – up to 3,000 SIP subscribers (per unit)
  • SIP trunks & built-in compression – to manage bandwidth usage
  • External Database Interface – enhancing administration support
  • Host Control Interface – for additional call management capabilities
  • SNMP monitoring
  • MLPP – for priority and preemption
  • AS-SIP – for resource priorities, ensuring system and network access and control
  • Modem over IP (V.150.1) and Fax over IP (T.38) when stacked with SLICE 2100
  • Secure Socket Layer (SSL)/Transport Layer Security (TLS) – for a common encryption layer

Manage IP SATCOM bandwidth with the SLICE IP's built-in IP compression

Flexible compression methods help warfighters manage bandwidth usage. The SLICE IP's advanced standards-based IP trunk features help manage the SATCOM bandwidth consumed in IP based voice communications. Considerable SATCOM bandwidth can be saved during modem-driven secure voice conversations by using SLICE IP's integrated V.150.1 standard. Advanced IP trunk features manage the quantity of calls allowed over SATCOM links, as well as the amount of bandwidth a user consumes.

MLPP Support

The SLICE IP provides Multi-Level Precedence and Preemption (MLPP) for end-to-end Warfighter communications. This essential element of command and control (C2) ensures that the most important calls get through to the end location and warfighter.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)/Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol

SSL/TLS provides a common encryption layer which can be used by a number of IP applications, relieving each application from the burden of providing its own method of encrypting. With readily available client software, it can encrypt Telnet, the IP application through which system administration is done. This prevents, among other things, eavesdropping on terminal sessions.

Scalable and Flexible

The SLICE IP is scalable and flexible for future growth. Up to three SLICE IP systems can be stacked to operate as a single system when greater capacity is required, allowing you to triple your IP trunking and IP subscriber base to 9,000 per node. The SLICE IP can also be stacked with the REDCOM SLICE 2100 when access to E1/T1 trunks or legacy protocols is needed.

REDCOM Tactical Communications Package

The SLICE IP is ideal for emergency mobile or rapid deployment applications such as: police, fire, military, emergency response, and air traffic control networks. Special emergency configurations are available in durable portable containers, called Tactical Communications Packages (TCPs).

REDCOM TCPs are built to withstand the harsh conditions of airlift, seaborne transport, and off road transportation. The transit cases meet stringent government and defense specifications for impact and vibration. REDCOM solutions are installed in ships, trucks and Humvees, as well as communications shelters and remote encampments or tent cities.

Supports AS-SIP Requirements

REDCOM is a key partner with DISA in implementing the Assured Services Session Initiation Protocol (AS-SIP), as defined by the Unified Capabilities Requirements (UCR) technical standards for telecommunication switching equipment. AS-SIP is a defined set of SIP signaling standards incorporating DoD Assured Service functionality, including MLPP to assure connectivity for command and control.
