When it comes to computer networking, Cisco technology is considered the industry standard. Cisco is credited for defining many of today’s networking standards and protocols used by modern Ethernet switches and routers. Cisco has also developed a range of embedded routing and switching products that Curtiss-Wright, as a Cisco Solution Technology Integrator (STI) partner, integrates into rugged subsystems to add robust networking, communications, and security capabilities.
Security of Data-in-Motion
Military mission system data can be vulnerable to attack if not properly secured. As data travels through an Ethernet network, it can potentially fall into the wrong hands. This is as true for network data at a forward operating base as it is for local networks on board vehicles and aircraft, both manned and unmanned.
