API Technologies, a provider of RF/microwave, microelectronics and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, announced the launch of its ION Networks line of secure networking products at the International Avaya (News - Alert) User Group (IAUG) Global Education Conference.
API Technologies designs, develops and manufactures electronic systems, subsystems, RF and secure solutions for technically demanding defense, aerospace and commercial applications. The new products help service providers, customers and Avaya partners realize the security and trouble resolution benefits of the Avaya Secure Access Link (SAL) platform.
“Avaya customers and partners have long relied on the ION Networks (News - Alert) product line to facilitate the secure remote administration of these essential communication systems,” said Henry Gold, business area manager for API Technologies’ ION Networks line of products. “ION products work in concert with tools, like Avaya SAL, to help enterprise and government customers simplify deployment and achieve even better performance from their Avaya systems.”
One of the products showcased at the event is ION SA5600-SAL – Avaya SAL Edition, which provides secure IP and dial-up connectivity to Avaya and heritage Nortel (News - Alert) systems. The drop-in appliance helps support personnel and third party providers, and Avaya service technicians conduct troubleshooting and maintenance of critical systems.
The second solution, ION SA5600IA Secure Appliance, DoD/Government Edition, is a 2-, 4- or 8-port appliance designed to facilitate secure modem access to managed communication systems. The JITC/IA-compliant appliance device offers highly secure, reliable out-of-band remote access to Avaya systems.
Another solution, the Avaya ASG Defender, is a Linux-based appliance that offers secure dial-up access, as well as monitoring features. The service is required when remote access is a necessity to support critical Avaya systems but IP connectivity is not allowed.API Technologies recently announced its manufacturing facility in Wesson, Mississippi, was awarded 'Corporate Business of the Year' by the Wesson Chamber of Commerce in Copiah County, Mississippi.
