VoyagerVM

Core-i7 server module with VMWare support

Klas Telecom’s VoyagerVM platform meets the need to push applications and services forward to the dismount soldier and comes in the same small form factor that is standard across all Voyager networking modules.

In the tactical communications market, virtualization technologies have changed the deployment models of many common server-based applications. The availability of software routing solutions such as Cisco CSR 1000V, call management technologies like Cisco Unified Communications Manager, and WAN acceleration technologies such as Cisco WAAS, Citrix WANscaler and Riverbed Steelhead as virtual machines has provided considerable ability to maximize hardware resources in tactical applications.

Klas Telecom’s VoyagerVM platform meets the need to push applications and services forward to the dismount soldier and comes in the same small form factor that is standard across all Voyager networking modules. It is based on a common carrier board with an expanded set of physical interfaces demanded for tactical operations, such as Ethernet, console, DisplayPort/HDMI and removable solid-state storage. This solution provides the optimum performance within SWaP constraints for an austere environment while positioning critical resources local to the point of use.

VoyagerVM provides either a dual or quad core 3rd Gen Intel Core i7 virtualization server module offering multi-user secure enclave communications and applications. It supports full Cisco IoS routing using Cisco Cloud Services Router 1000v or Cisco 5921 ESR. VoyagerVM can simultaneously host full acceleration suites while hosting other network services locally on the disadvantaged side of a SATCOM link.

Klas Telecom has successfully deployed the following partner solutions on the VoyagerVM:

  • Cisco IPICS
  • Twisted Pair Wave
  • Cisco Unified Call Manager (CUCM)
  • Haivision Kraken
  • Microsoft Exchange
  • Microsoft SharePoint
  • VidyoGateway and VidyoRouter
  • Absio Secure Messaging Gateway

    • Voyager 2: provides 15 W of PoE power (48 VDC), sufficient to power two Class 2 PoE phones at 6.25 W each
    • Voyager 8: provides 100 W of PoE power (48 VDC), sufficient to power sixteen Class 2 PoE phones at 6.25 W each
  • Power consumption:

    ■ 2610UE (Dual Core) = 34 W (without PoE)

    ■3612QE (Quad Core) = 45 W (without PoE)

    NOTE: Each PoE port requires an additional 8 – 15 W

    depending on the device being powered.
