Engage Communication Enables Circuit Based COMSEC Type 1 Serial Link Encryptors to Operate Over Packet Networks at up to 16 Megabits
Aptos , CA , January 27, 2005
Engage Communication announces the release of the IP Tube RS530 HS, a higher speed next generation Synchronous Serial Data Over IP solution, with enhanced functionality, performance, and value.
The IP Tube RS530 HS provides for the leveraging of synchronous serial bulk rate encryptors such as KIV-7, KIV-19, OMNIxi and KG-84. The IP Tube RS530 HS encapsulates synchronous serial data from Data Terminal or Communication Equipment into IP packets. These IP packets are sent to a remote IP Tube RS530 HS where the serial data is de-encapsulated and synchronously clocked into the remote Data Equipment. The IP connection provides for the transparent interconnection of Synchronous Serial Data Equipment via LANs, WANs, MANs, Satellite and Wireless Ethernet.
• Secure LAN to LAN interconnect
• Secure Video TeleConferencing
• Field Command Centers
• Secure Wireless Bridge connections
• SIPRNet or NIPRNet access
The IP Tube RS530 HS has a sophisticated adaptive clocking circuitry that supports the smooth synchronous clocking required by Video Codecs and configurations that minimize latency and overhead such as those required to operate effectively over Satellite links. Data rates from 2.4 Kilobits per second to 16 million bits per second are application configured.
“Defense, Government agencies and Contractors face an ever-increasing need to establish Type 1 secure data communications links.” said Mark Doyle Engage Communication President, “The IPTubeRS530HS has the performance to support multi-user bandwidth hungry applications with the fault tolerance required to operate over lossy or redundant links.”
In order to assure that circuits are extended over connections with fault tolerance the IP Tube RS530HS has as a standard capability an Assured Delivery Protocol that supports high performance full duplex real time data. The protocol has packet out of sequence detection and re sequencing, duplicate skipping, and real time lost packet retransmission with configured delay.
The protector option utilizes the second LAN interface as a redundant path for the interconnection of the IP encapsulated Synchronous Serial data. The extension of the RS530 circuit has a fault tolerant link that is configured to always on, or with switch over criteria.
