Rugged Handheld Wireless MANET and Router
Now the broadest set of networking capabilities comes in a handheld device. TCS TotalCom® solutions now includes a small, wearable wireless node that provides MANET 802.11 Wi-Fi connectivity coupled with a software-based Cisco router. The WearNET™ uses a single band MANET radio from Persistent Systems and the Cisco 5921 software based IOS router, allowing the user to become a roaming wireless node that will seamlessly connect to the MANET mesh while also providing full layer three routing from the router. Both the radio and router can provide Internet Protocol Security (IPSec)-encrpyted links to ensure all communications are secure.
