ITASCA, Ill., Nov. 1 (UPI) -- Two U.S. communications companies are working to provide military and civilian markets with advanced, ruggedized Third- and Fourth-generation communications.
Lemko Corp., a provider of Distributed Mobile Wireless Network solutions, said its reseller agreement with the Harris Corp. includes Harris' KnightHawk and KnightLite tactical communications systems as well as its own SwarmNet, which enables formation of full-featured ad hoc broadband wireless networks while on the move.
"The agreement allows Harris to combine its tactical cellular edge platform with Lemko's virtualized mobile broadband core software." Lemko said in announcing the reseller agreement.
"The combined solution will provide warfighters, first responders and public safety officials with access to Lemko's patented SwarmNet capabilities in the rugged, field-proven Harris KnightHawk and KnightLite platforms."
Lemko said its Distributed Mobile Wireless Network solutions will enable each Harris KnightHawk or KnightLite to operate autonomously as a self-contained cellular network or in a scalable network with hundreds of nodes.
