THE COMMUNICATION SOLUTION
SMS Data Products Group developed and configured a self-contained, secure communications system. It provides wired and wireless users with communications capability within an installation's cantonment areas such as buildings, facilities or forward operating locations.
The Mobile Kit consists of Management Node and End User Node components. The Manager Node component resides anywhere that has a Secured Internet Protocol Network (SIPRNet) point of presence and Local Area Network (LAN) drop. The End User Node component supports the users and can be placed anywhere there is a local LAN drop. A single Management Node component can provide connectivity to one or more End User Nodes depending upon the specific connectivity requirements of the customer.
Additionally, the kit has the capability to interconnect to a Very Small Aperture Terminals (VSAT) to provide SIPRNet connectivity in an installation's isolated areas, forward locations. All equipment contained within the kit will operate on 110-220V AC power.
Each 'End User Node' of the kit supports up to 20 wired users and up to 20 wireless users. Secure communication is established across an unsecure network through an encrypted tunnel set up between the Type-1 encryptor in 'Management Node' and the Type-1 encryptor in the 'End User Node'.
