SCALABLE Network Technologies to Showcase JTRS Network Emulator (JNE) at JTRS Science and Technology Forum
– Advanced emulation provides digital duplicates of live radios, for realistic test and evaluation of JTRS products –
Culver City, CA -- SCALABLE Network Technologies, Inc. (SCALABLE), the leader in communications simulation technology, announced that the company will be participating in the annual JTRS Science and Technology Forum (JSTeF), March 15-17, on the campus of the University of California, San Diego.
SCALABLE was awarded a Phase 2.5 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant in 2009 to create an enterprise solution for network communications simulation for JTRS Ground Mobile Radio (GMR) testing, training and experimentation. The product that evolved from this contract work, called JNE (JTRS Network Emulator), is currently being used for testing and evaluating JTRS networks in dynamic, highly realistic ways. Because JNE emulates the JTRS waveforms with complete realism, it can “virtually size-up” the network to a scale that is representative of the intensity and distribution of network traffic typical of battlefield deployments.
The JNE emulated network performs with all the complexity and realism of a real network - in real time, using a realistic traffic mix that would be generated by battle command applications. Because of this unprecedented degree of fidelity, JNE can be integrated in live exercises using real hardware, real users, real applications, and connected to real networks.
JNE provides developers and users with a breakthrough capability to test earlier, more often and with greater agility. Immediate payout from JNE includes accelerated development cycle time and significant cost-savings. Over the long run, rigorously tested system integration will ensure robust and predictable network performance for the warfighter.
Other uses that are part of the US Army and Joint Forces vision for JNE include advances in training for signal officers and operators on JTRS network management software, as well as testing and analysis of emerging software defined radio (SDR) and network-centric systems.
SCALABLE will have an exhibit at the forum as well as a presentation by Dr. Sheetal Doshi, principal investigator for the Phase 2.5 SBIR, which will cover capabilities and plans for integration of JNE into defense and commercial applications products.
Media representatives are invited to attend 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM, March 16th, in the Calit2 Auditorium of Atkinson hall. For additional conference information, please refer to the conference website at http://jtrs.calit2.net/.
