The PacStar 4100 Initial Entry Package is a JITC-certified, portable communications package that supports tactical personnel during an operation’s initial entry period. The PacStar 4100 provides critical voice and data connectivity prior to the installation of more permanent communications capabilities. Built with Cisco technology and PacStar’s IQ-Core® Software, the system provides satellite connectivity to the Internet and the DISN (Defense Information Systems Network).

Each system consists of two cases that meet airline carry-on rules and are also tested to MIL-STD-810F vibration, shock, and environmental standards.

The system’s two enclave routers also enable concurrent access to NIPRNet and SIPRNet, or non-concurrent access to NIPRNet or SIPRNet.

The system uses LAN, satellite, VoIP, and analog phone technologies, all integrated into an easy-to-use package. The core router has eight data/ VoIP ports and four analog phone ports, with more data/VoIP ports on the two enclave routers. Each unit has a BGAN satellite modem for remote broadband access.

The PacStar 4100 is powered by PacStar IQ-Core® Software. This network management software uses wizards and management pages to manage the telephony, network, and bandwidth options for the system.
