As traditional reachback network architectures are supplemented by the need to analyse data on the edge of the network, your compute and communications requirements have grown. The Voyager 8 Plus chassis increases the power budget of Voyager 8 by 50% to support Klas’ Xeon-based compute modules and the expanding range of radio interface brackets. This provides access to the data that you need in-theater and the ability to analyse and disseminate it. The range is supplemented by the airworthiness-qualified variant, Voyager 8+ Aero to provide enroute communications.

Key Features

■ Supports the full range of Voyager network modules to provide:

  • Routing & switching
  • VoIP
  • Server virtualization
  • Radio Integration
  • WAN acceleration
  • Storage
  • UPS
  • Satellite, terrestrial and cellular backhaul

■ Can be configured as a tactical data storage network, tactical radio integration system, cross domain suite and more

■ Compute module on the rear of the Voyager 8 PLUS runs KlasOS Keel and hence provides many familiar features such as a Ciscolike CLI for management, SSH, SNMP, and a built-in hypervisor. Features include:

  • LCD display which can be configured to show battery status information
  • Monitoring of battery state and input power state via SMBus and PMBus
  • Reporting of battery and power state
  • User authentication, SSH access, etc. using the same KlasOS codebase as for Common Criteria approved products
  • Built-in hypervisor to allow deployment of a GuestOS, for example, a lightweight management suite to monitor the installed modules
