Origins and history

Launched in January 2011, Oceus Networks leverages Ericsson's $5 billion annual investment in research and development to meet emerging and future government and commercial communication needs.[1][2] In May 2011, Oceus Networks announced the availability of Xiphos, a new fourth-generation (4G) Long Term Evolution (LTE) family of fully interoperable solutions that enable high-speed, high-capacity voice, video and data transmissions for military personnel and first responders.[3]


At the 2011 Department of Defense Intelligence Information Systems (DoDIIS) Worldwide Conference, Oceus Networks launched Xiphos, "easily deployable broadband networks wherever traditional communication infrastructures are unavailable or compromised...no matter how advanced the required capability or how isolated the surrounding terrain."[4] Xiphos is a scalable system, letting users deploy small systems when small teams are operating in remote environments. It can also be scaled to larger boxes that support a large number of users with higher bandwidth.[5]
