Thanks to direct order agreements, roda is a very important partner to the „German Bundeswehr“ for rugged IT equipment.
On the other hand, TECHAYA is a leading engineer and manufacturer of rugged IP-based communication systems for ground-, air- and naval- application. The entire series of Ethernet switches, routers, USB-hubs and media converters are built from the ground up to correspond with extreme environment- and quality requirements by and for dismounted soldiers, to comply with big and tiny unmanned aircraft vehicles. This company gives special attention to the miniaturization of the components.
"The products of Israel-based manufacturer Techaya fit perfectly into our portfolio and our focus on the "one stop shop" for rugged hardware”, says Managing Director Frank Scholz. Techaya is similar to roda and focuses on the defense industry and the specific needs of customization. The compact 19"/2® network products of our Swedish partner MilDef AB, which are already on offer, follow a clear form factor strategy. Together with Techaya, we have another brick to reduce payload.
"The smallest MIL-STD certified 4-port switch weighs just 130 grams and, with dimensions of 82x52x26 mm, is the size of a business card" Zak Sucher, Business Development Manager of Techaya. "We are active worldwide but relatively unknown in Europe, but roda all the more! So it was natural to arrange the distribution with roda with its excellent sales Network.
