PacStar® Announces Collaboration with Oceus Networks to Demonstrate End-to-End Secure Wireless Solutions for Classified Communications over Wi-Fi and LTE
Integrated, turnkey solution extends secure wireless communications for the warfighter
Portland, OR – September 24, 2018 – PacStar today announced a collaboration with Oceus Networks to deliver an end-to-end secure wireless solution for classified networks. The collaboration combines a customized PacStar Secure Wireless Command Post (SWCP) with Oceus Xiphos Family of Products and Services including LTE, wireless management and services technologies. As a result, warfighters gain access to a solution that provides high speed mobile wireless via Wi-Fi over short distances, and LTE for mobile wireless at much greater distance, in a rugged, tactical package.
PacStar SWCP is a fully integrated, expeditionary solution providing two layers of encryption, using commercial technologies, eligible for use in transmitting classified information over wireless networks. Oceus Xiphos includes an advanced tactical LTE radio infrastructure with a comprehensive suite of services, providing LTE radio transport for mobile devices in austere environments. The joint solution will be unveiled and demonstrated at Modern Day Marine, which takes place September 25-27, 2018 in Quantico, VA.
Last year, PacStar launched its pioneering PacStar Secure Wireless Command Post (Wi-Fi) to provide high-speed wireless for mobile devices, at Wi-Fi distances, typically a few hundred feet. With the addition of Oceus’ technology, PacStar SWCP now enables warfighter mobility at much greater distances, measured in thousands of feet or several miles from the cellular base station – much like consumers are able to roam using LTE for daily activity.
The joint solution delivers the combined innovation from PacStar’s core hardware, software, network systems and cybersecurity engineering teams, integrated with the leading tactical LTE technology from Oceus Networks – in a complete, turnkey solution. Oceus Networks Xiphos Family of Products includes a comprehensive suite of rugged, deployable LTE base stations supporting dismounted “micro” sized solutions for small teams, scaling to large “macro” base stations suitable for large, deployed communications operations centers. Oceus Networks also provides an extensive array of applications and services providing situational awareness and communications for the tactical user – supplemented with security technologies, network management and end user device management tools.
“We’re excited to demonstrate the integration of PacStar technologies and Oceus Networks technologies, providing secure wireless LTE and Wi-Fi in a turnkey solution. The combination of our technologies provides the most complete secure wireless tactical solution available today,” said Peggy Miller, chief executive officer at PacStar.
”This solution represents years of engineering investment by both Oceus and PacStar, combining the best in the tactical networking, cybersecurity and communication industry,” adds Randy Fuerst, President and Chief Executive Officer for Oceus Networks. “Oceus Networks, a proven leader in Tactical LTE solutions, is committed to ensuring success for the warfighters by ensuring complete, end-to-end interoperability with complementary technology partners such as PacStar.”
PacStar and Oceus will conduct live demonstrations of the joint solution at our booth (#1366) at Modern Day Marine 2018.
