CoCo Communications will provide a demonstration of a secure, scalable network protocol to support Tactical Edge Networks as part of the Global Information Grid. This protocol's capabilities will be verified through the use of voice, video and data applications over TEN-A, TEN-B, and TEN-M networks. These applications will demonstrate the two-way sharing of information. Voice, live video, and sensor data will be relayed from the farthest edge of the tactical network back to a central, fixed location. Also, ewb0based information will be relayed from Integrated Shipboard Network Systems applications to the far edge of the network, across multiple, repeated wireless links.
