TrellisWare Demonstrates 815 Node Network Scalability for Simultaneous PLI/Voice/C2 Service in 1.2 MHz

SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, December 7, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — TrellisWare Technologies, Inc., a global leader in resilient communications solutions, today announced the successful completion of two major scalability events that highlighted new capabilities to provide customers with even greater network performance, resiliency, interoperability across multiple vendor platforms, and ease of deployment for their tactical networks. The events focused on the company’s most significant customer use cases:

• Flattening command and control (C2) by providing extremely high scalability, thereby enabling a flat battalion network fielding at the individual soldier level in a single 1.2 MHz radio frequency (RF) channel
• Maximizing efficiency for practical operational use in areas where radio frequency (RF) spectrum availability is congested or limited

Leveraging the recently released TSM® waveform version 6.2.1 firmware running on radios deployed around their San Diego, CA campus, the TrellisWare engineering team demonstrated a sizeable flat network consisting of 815 nodes, all operating in a single 1.2 MHz RF channel. The significant capabilities simultaneously demonstrated include:

• The resilient network was rapidly formed consisting of 815 real TrellisWare® radios
• The TrellisWare radio platform deployed supported 225 MHz to 2600 MHz spectrum in one piece of hardware
• The Position Location Information (PLI) of every radio was updated at an average of less than 10 seconds for all 815 nodes
• 100% of the radios and their associated PLI were viewable by every radio in the network
• Voice communications were supported with 32 talk groups available
• IP-data C2 services were supported, including the TAK application

“To make large node-count scalability events operationally relevant, it is important to build the network with multi-hop topology over diverse terrain, and with highly dynamic mobility, as opposed to just turning on a bunch of radios in a large room or parking lot statically,” said Jon Cromwell, vice president of engineering at TrellisWare.

TrellisWare has demonstrated 800+ nodes to US and international government customers during the last few years with pre-released firmware. The release of their newest TSM 6.2.1 firmware incorporates optimized improvements supporting massive scalability objectives. “This test was to validate further the impact of those improvements at a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 9 maturity with production-released software,” added Cromwell.

In the second event, TrellisWare teamed with US Department of Defense (DoD) customers to optimize how the TSM waveform could better support their operations, including advanced tactical services such as video and heavy transmission control protocol (TCP) server-centric dependency. That effort highlighted the benefit of cross-layer optimization between the applications and network services. As a result, new capabilities in the TSM 6.2.1 firmware, combined with minor configuration changes to the application software, enabled a 300% increase in client scalability while maintaining full network visibility and availability of services.

“In collaboration with users and application developers, we optimized the TSM network to improve the users’ current ATAK deployment while also demonstrating valuable application layer improvements,” stated Haidong Wang, vice president of product management and strategic partnerships. “Availability of uncontested and contested spectrum is considerably scarce, so an efficient application layer delivering the same services with lower bandwidth required will result in increased network resiliency.”

TrellisWare has designed this high-scalability testbed to continuously collaborate with customers and partners to benefit future tactical networks.

TrellisWare Announces Release of New TSM™ Waveform Firmware with a Leap Ahead in Scalability and Throughput

TrellisWare Announces Release of New TSM™ Waveform Firmware with a Leap Ahead in Scalability and Throughput

TSM™ version 6.2.1 firmware increases network capacity, doubles the network size possible, and expands interoperability to an even greater ecosystem

San Diego, CA – May 16, 2022 – TrellisWare Technologies, Inc., announced today the launch of its newest feature set for the TSM™ waveform as part of the 6.2.1 firmware release. TrellisWare’s® TSM™ waveform 6.2.1 (TSM 6.2.1) firmware release enhances throughput applications such as video and uncrewed systems, facilitates TSM networks to be fielded with unprecedented scalability compared to other MANET offerings in the market, and expands interoperability with Type 1 networks deploying TSM-X™ with Warrior Robust Enhanced Network (WREN) Security (AKA WREN TSM). This firmware release further improves the TSM network management experience and improves third-party software integration.

  • Enhanced Throughput Experience –

Several new features contribute to better throughput for TrellisWare® radios in a TSM network. High Data Rate (HDR) Mode delivers greater throughput to provide greater support for high bandwidth applications, such as HD video. New Packet Processing Rules (PPR) allow for more tailorable and efficient use of the network, thus increasing overall network capacity. Spectrum Pipelining is a feature that doubles available multi-hop throughput by configuring the network to operate over two radio frequency (RF) channels, thereby reducing channel contention. This feature also provides significant spectrum flexibility because the channels do not need to be contiguous.

  • Massive Scalability –

TSM 6.2.1 dramatically increases the number of radios and attached devices supported in a TSM network across all configurable bandwidths, and eases configuration management when a single large network is desired. TSM 6.2.1 supports 800+ radios, and in addition, up to 800 attached devices such as end-user-devices (EUDs) in a single 1.2 MHz RF channel.

  • Approved Solution for a Mixed Security Network–

Radios running TSM 6.2.1 participating in a WREN TSM network can now relay Secret and Below (SAB) communications, as well as participate in Sensitive but Unclassified (SBU) traffic. This allows for the deployment of a mixed SAB and SBU network. Other solutions, such as cabling SBU and SAB radios together, disregard legitimate security considerations and put users at risk.

  • Radio and Network Management –

New radio and network management tools included with TSM 6.2.1 facilitate an improved user experience in areas of provisioning and network monitoring. The TrellisWare Network Controller’s (TNC) Over The Air Management (OTAM) feature allows for configuration of multiple radios in a single “remote control” instance over a TSM network. In addition, users can now view the Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) of a link in the TrellisWare Network Controller (TNC) Link page.

  • Enhanced Position Location Information (PLI) Functionality –

The new external PLI feature allows radios to ingest PLI in one of several selectable formats from an external device and transport it efficiently over a TSM network. Furthermore, PLI distributed in a TSM network can now be accessed more easily and efficiently.

“The TrellisWare Engineering and Customer Support teams are dedicated to delivering cutting-edge technology that meet the needs of our customers and improves their workflow,” said Nick Guiffrida, product manager, software. “The newest TSM 6.2.1 firmware release further positions TSM ahead of traditional MANET technology for markets balancing high-throughput and reliability, including large scale soldier modernization programs. In our mission to meet future resilient communications today, TSM 6.2.1 builds on the previous TSM 6.1.7 firmware release that includes Long Range Mode and Multi-Net Bridge, among other key features.”

The TrellisWare TSM waveform 6.2.1 firmware release is now available to registered users of TrellisWare radios. Contact TrellisWare Customer Support for more information at support@trellisware.com.
