Fidelity Comtech, Inc. (FCI), the leading provider of extended wireless solutions, today announced an agreement with Assured Information Security, Inc. (AIS), in which it will integrate and resell Fidelity Comtech’s government version of the Phocus Array(TM) System, a small lightweight outdoor extended reach 802.11b/g phased array wireless system as part of AIS’ government integrated solutions. In addition to providing extended wireless coverage in large area outdoor environments, AIS will be integrating FCI’s new Geo-II(TM) and Geo-III(TM) location capabilities for indoor and outdoor challenging environments. As a result of this partnership, AIS will offer its customers reliable, secure extended wireless access for a range of large area outdoor and indoor networking and GeoLocation applications for the U.S. federal and state governments.
“Fidelity Comtech brings new added dimensions to wireless solutions with their superior wireless reach and standoff GeoLocation capabilities. We have already integrated their product capabilities into some of our leading government solutions,” said Glenn T. Welsh, Vice President, Assured Information Security.
Fidelity Comtech’s Phocus Array System incorporates the company’s patented dynamic beam steering and shaping (DBSS) technology which allows the shape, direction and size of the antenna patterns to be varied on a packet-by-packet basis. This flexibility allows the beam for IEEE 802.11 b/g communications to be pointed instantly for increased signal range and improved network reliability, and directed to reach a specific geographic area. The standard product Phocus Array System can support links of up to nearly 15 miles with a significant reduction in infrastructure for large area wireless coverage. More importantly, the Phocus Array System extends the wireless reach of typical Wi-Fi clients nearly four times their normal distance. Fidelity Comtech’s second-generation system also incorporates WPA and WPA2 wireless security with 3DES and AES encryption, respectively, and features additional memory and a new faster core computing platform based on Intel’s XScale processor. Geo-II Line-of-Bearing (LoB) and Geo-III Pin-point Standoff GeoLocation (PSG) software provides superior capabilities.
“Our companies are known for state-of-the-art, reliable, and secure mobile extended wireless and GeoLocation solutions in operationally challenging applications, and we look forward to working with Assured Information Security to bring our solutions to a number of new government customers,” said Joe Carey, President and CEO of Fidelity Comtech.
