PacStar®, a leading developer of advanced communications solutions for the US Department of Defense, today announced that it has successfully obtained a Type Accreditation and the Authority to Operate (ATO) for the PacStar 4100 on the classified and unclassified Outside Continental United States (OCONUS) Navy Enterprise Network (ONE-NET). This approval enables any authorized Navy customer to access the ONE-NET Enterprise network remotely while on travel or deployed via any IP-enabled transport.
“These new approvals permit PacStar to assist the US Navy to have real time mobile communications with high-speed data rate solutions for NIPRNet and SIPRNet connectivity on a global basis.” said Bob Dunn, chief executive officer of PacStar. “This further demonstrates that the PacStar 4100 is the right solution for secure tactical communications, providing broadband communications for teams, in a compact carry-on size case – ideal for executive travel, rapid response, and initial entry uses.”
The PacStar 4100 is currently deployed in all of the US DoD services, providing access to NIPRNet, SIPRNet, JWICS and CENTRIXS networks, providing voice, data and video transmission, routing and access for phones, laptops, and VTC equipment. Based on Cisco® 1861 ISR routers, with extensive attention to reduction in size, weight and power, the PacStar 4100 is the multi-network solution of choice for communication teams in austere environments. The PacStar 4100 also sets the benchmark for ease-of-use through PacStar’s integrated software management GUI, IQ-Core® Software. Providing monitoring, alerting, provisioning and configuration management, IQ-Core Software makes sophisticated networking and communication equipment easier to use for lightly-trained or busy communication operators in the field.
“PacStar puts great effort into meeting DoD mandated requirements,’ said Charlie Kawasaki, chief technical officer of PacStar. “Our engineering team is uniquely qualified to assist customers in both interoperability and information assurance certifications – as demonstrated by this new approval.”
