Quintron Systems has completed the initial delivery of the digital integrated communications electronic system (DICES) voice over internet protocol (VoIP) system to the White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) to support its mission-critical voice applications.

The delivery is part of a contract with the US Army WSMR Systems Engineering (SE) Directorate and follows a successful factory acceptance test in November 2011. The package includes two main DICES VoIP central servers with IP Trunks and database replication, four T1 Gateways and 120 total DICES VoIP user stations of three different types.

The DICES VoIP system is a redundant Ethernet architecture integrating TDM and VoIP applications under one communications platform and underwent several engineering enhancements to meet the overall WSMR requirements. The system is equipped with two new user stations to provide direct drop-in replacements for existing stations to simplify the implementation process.

Additional software enhancements include distributed central servers with database replication to support independent North and South Range operations at WSMR as well as a back-up server available for either. The IP Trunk was also activated to enable direct audio circuit sharing between the distributed central servers to facilitate common operations with minimal bandwidth utilisation for the WSMR multiple simultaneous mission operations.

The DICES system is the first major IP-based user system integrated into the WSMR Test Support Network (TSN) and will replace existing disparate, ageing voice systems to make it compliant with US ranges in the DoD-directed migration to net-centric architectures. Currently, the system is undergoing a US Army Information Assurance (IA) review to support active connection to the TSN, followed by initiation of transition operations across the WSMR control rooms.

A second contract for purchase of additional equipment to continue the implementation process is set to be awarded in early 2012.
