Lockheed Martin has partnered with Juniper Networks to demonstrate a routing technology intended to streamline the dissemination of critical information from remote environments to U.S. military commanders.
Under the partnership, Lockheed said it integrated its Dynamic Data Link Manager with Juniper’s Session Smart Routing technology to deliver a hybrid software-defined wide-area network that provides secure 5G and military data link connectivity.
“By combining our secure 5G.MIL technologies with Juniper’s industry-leading SD-WAN solution and routing capabilities, Lockheed Martin is delivering resilient, intelligent communications that keep our customers ahead of evolving threats,” shared Dan Rice, vice president of 5G.MIL programs at Lockheed
The “mission-aware” routing technology works to optimize data flow by prioritizing the most important information to be delivered first over available data links in a decentralized “network of networks.”
Data collected from various military assets were monitored and collected by DDLM and passed to Juniper’s SSR technology to determine the optimal channel and routing priority.
