Use Case:

Give forces information superiority with mobile broadband

Upgrade your operational and tactical communications with mission-critical LTE

New mobile broadband communications could help defense forces operate at their best. But to deliver the latest data, video, and IoT services, you need a secure, resilient mobile broadband data infrastructure. Nokia can help you build an LTE network that meets your specific military requirements — enabling rich multimedia information and giving forces information superiority.

Challenge: Inherent limitations in existing networks

Current military operational and tactical networks provide reliable, secure voice services. But they cannot support new broadband applications, such as video surveillance, geo-location — or high-speed data exchanges. Instead, their data capabilities are limited to the narrowband range, and they are often costly, proprietary systems.

Solution: Evolve to LTE communications for defense

Nokia helps you leverage technology advances by adding mobile broadband capabilities to your operational and tactical networks. Our solutions meet your specific needs with end-to-end, mission-critical LTE networks and rapidly deployable systems — based on our market-leading, commercial, off-the shelf products. With this foundation, new multimedia applications can greatly enhance your forces’ situational awareness.

Greater awareness


Mobile broadband technology delivers more information — faster — for better informed, safer military operations

High security


Mission-critical LTE provides the crucial reliability and security required for military communications

Reduced TCO


You can count on mission-critical performance, using standards-based, commercial LTE equipment
