    DND has a requirement for a tactical, stand-alone, small form factor, ready portable and remotely deployable, independently powered, high-speed private LTE voice and data solution, which is fully integrated and compatible with existing TELESAT architecture.

From a security standpoint, the mobile network vendor must offer commercially encrypted, fully portable private LTE solutions without the requirement to connect to a public domain or infrastructure of any kind. In addition, the equipment must directly interface with existing SATCOM architecture facilitating integration and alleviating re-engineering of a specific solution requiring additional resources and costs.
