Rugged Routers and Switches

Today's defense, aerospace and commercial networks have become a war zone. As military forces and businesses seek to gain a competitive edge through information dominance, a high-speed, highly available and secure network becomes critical to even basic operations. Whether in the battlefield, factory or out in a remote oil rig, modern communication nodes are connecting to high-speed IP networks with Ethernet routers and switches at their core.

GE Intelligent Platforms rugged secure routers and Ethernet switches are designed specifically for battlefield and industrial applications, addressing the harsh environments and often dynamic nature of these networks with rugged enclosures and specialized protocol and management features. Our secure routers are engineered from the ground up with advanced firewalls, encryption, and hardware-assisted security features. GE's rugged Ethernet switch portfolio offers a broad range of high-speed network connectivity and management options to meet a range of price/performance and application requirements.
