Software Definable Network Appliances™ (SDN-A™) are portable, robust, software programmable communications solutions for secure voice, video and data feeds over a variety commercial network technologies including Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Cellular, MANET, SATCOM and more.

Software Definable Network Appliance (SDNA) Half Rack Width (HRW)

The SDNA-HRW is our highest performing SDN-A, featuring Intel® processors with Intel QuickAssist® Technology (QAT). Intel QAT significantly increases cryptographic performance by adding dedicated cryptographic acceleration hardware on the Intel Xeon CPU, supporting 20 Gbps and 50 Gbps AES encryption performance levels. By using the dedicated cryptographic acceleration logic, the balance of the Intel Xeon processor can be leveraged for software based Virtualized Networking Functions (VNF) or application servers.

Software Definable Network Appliance Half Rack Width (HRW)

The Software Definable Network-Appliance (SDN-ATM) Half Rack Width (HRW) C3000 is a highly portable, rugged, high performance software programmable communications solution that combines the functionality of a tactical IP router and a Virtual Machine (VM) server. It enables users to leverage a multitude of commercial vendors’ Virtualized Networking Functions (VNF) paired with application server VMs in a single, small form factor hardware appliance. These include routers, firewalls, IDS/IPS, Windows Server, Linux Server, etc.

A small, extremely rugged, and high-performance appliance with the processing power to simultaneously host multiple networking functions and application server virtual machines on its Intel Xeon® E3 processor.

Software Definable Network Appliance (SDNA) Half Rack Width (HRW)

The SDNA-HRW-X2 is our highest performing SDN-A, featuring Intel® Xeon D2100 Series processors with Intel QuickAssist® Technology (QAT). Intel QAT significantly increases cryptographic performance by adding dedicated cryptographic acceleration hardware on the Intel Xeon CPU, supporting 20 Gbps and 50 Gbps AES encryption performance levels. By using the dedicated cryptographic acceleration logic, the balance of the Intel Xeon processor can be leveraged for software based Virtualized Networking Functions (VNF) or application servers.

Software Definable Network Appliance LITE

SDN-ATM products are rugged, high performance, software programmable communications and computing appliances that enable the use of software-based VNFs for use as IP Routers, switching, computing, video transcoding, VoIP PBX, application servers, etc. The SDNA-LITE was designed from the ground up for use in harsh environment use cases.

The SDNA-LITE is extremely small, MIL STD 810/IP68 rugged, and very low power SDN-A. It features a single high-density connector that contains all its power and I/O, allowing for simple installation or removal from use.

Custom wire harnesses are available to meet application requirements, such as tailor-made length, interfaces, input/output, gender, etc. The SDNA-LITE also offers multiple mounting points and thermal solution mounting points in support of various worn and rigidly mounted applications.

Software Definable Network- Appliance™ with Haivision Kraken

Software Definable Network–Appliance™ (SDN-ATM) LITE-K is now available with Haivision’s Kraken video transcoder functionality for use cases where size, weight, power, and Mil-Standard 810 level of ruggedization is critical. Leveraging SDN-A technology, Kraken provides the highest picture quality from available bandwidth for low latency backhaul of situational awareness and C4ISR video.

Haivision Kraken™

Known for high-density tactical live HD video encoding and transcoding, Haivision’s Kraken can shape video streams for more robust backhaul via data links including satellite (SATCOM), microwave, and the internet, to downstream exploitation systems, such as enterprise distribution networks and mobile devices–where compliance with legacy standards is essential.

Software Definable Network Appliance with Epiq Solutions™ Radio

Teamed with Epiq Solutions, we designed, developed, and produced a highly secure, small form factor IP routers and Software Definable Network-Appliance (SDN-A) with embedded Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology. This portable product line is designed for government and military customers requiring security for their communications and other wireless applications.

The SDN-A with SDR product combines Epiq’s low Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP), SidekiqTM family of RF transceivers with our lightweight, ruggedized EC SDN-A, SDN-A MICRO, and HRW SDN-A products. The solution provides a powerful combination of SDR applications with NSA CNSA IPsec VPN tunneling over a wide array of commercial network technologies including Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Cellular, MANET, and Satcom.

Software Definable Network-Appliance Expeditionary Communications

The SDNA-XC is a highly portable, rugged software programmable communications solution that combines the functionality of an IP router and a Virtual Machine (VM) server. The SDNA-XC offers enterprise-class Virtualized Networking Function (VNF) performance in a small size, weight, and low power (SWaP) device that is durable enough to withstand the rigors of mobile and portable use in the most austere locations. The SDNA-XC is part of a family of small, low-profile appliances that can be used individually or paired with other XC appliances as part of assembling a truly scalable executive communications capability. Other XC devices include the XC-6300, the XC-3300, the SDNA-HK, and the PSU/UPS.
