Operax, a leading vendor of Network Service Quality control solutions, has further extended the agreement with the Royal Netherlands Army (RNLA), with additional licences for Operax Resource Manager, to guarantee Quality of Service (QoS) and manage bandwidth in its growing tactical communications networks.
In operational deployment for more than three years, Operax Resource Manager controls and manages available bandwidth in the RNLAâ€™s TITAAN (Theatre Independent Tactical Army and Airforce Network) . The solution takes the full advantage of Operax multi-service capabilities to utilize all means of communication, such as VoIP, Video conferencing, and wireless communication via TETRA mobile phones and satellite.
Richard Lowe, CEO Operax, stated: â€œThis is further acknowledgement of the value the Operax Resource Manager delivers and I am very happy that the RNLA has expanded our contract and chosen to grow with us.

TITAAN is a central system in the RNLAâ€™s migration to Network Centric Warfare (NCW), with focus on making information available to all troops in real time over an all-IP network. TITAAN is largely built upon Commercial Off The Shelf products and with its cutting edge technology, RNLA has been recognised as world leader in deployed NCW solutions. The TITAAN system is integrated and delivered by the RNLAâ€™s C2 (Command and Control) Support Center . The C2 Support Center is the internal systems integration unit of the RNLA for C2 applications.
Lt. Colonel Andre Poot, of the RNLAâ€™s C2 Support Center, commented: â€Resource Manager is an important component in our Next-Generation Communications Network. Thanks to the robustness and reliability in the product, as well as Operax ability and responsiveness in support, we feel very confident in the continued use of OPERAX in TITAAN.
