Security solutions

Secure wireless networking for the most challenging environments.

Leverage our custom communication solutions that can be configured for wireless, self-healing, self-configuring mesh networking. We are a leading provider of wireless networking solutions that are customized to an organization’s security challenges for video, data and voice communication needs. Our technology has been successfully tested and deployed in military, federal and local environments requiring high levels of security and accuracy.

WiFiProtect Access Point

Single-radio secure wireless mesh platform

WiFiProtect mesh networks offer a high performance portfolio of FIPS validated secure wireless mesh devices relied upon by military and industrial applications for continual connectivity and optimal security. Our mesh networks offer uncompromised voice, video, and data communications in stringent and hard to reach environments, reducing overhead and deployment costs without compromising fail-safe security levels.

WiFiProtect Access Point is a robust 802.11n wireless connectivity device that combines superior performance with interoperable, backward-compatible, next-generation WiFi technology. Using the latest 802.11n wireless technologies to achieve link rates of up to 300 Mbps, the WiFiProtect Access Point is a self-forming, self-healing wireless mesh solution that meets the growing demand for streaming media and advanced applications.

Federally assured to meet security mandates

WiFiProtect devices are highly credentialed offering IEEE 802.11 standard compliance, Common Criteria EAL Level 4 certification, and FIPS validation and are NSA Suite B upgradable. As with all Ultra products, WiFiProtect devices provide a range of security options to accommodate the stringent and wide spectrum of Information Assurance (IA) requirements.

WiFi Protect AMI

Single advanced meter infrastructure system.

The WiFiProtect AMI (advanced metering infrastructure) appliance provides a scalable wireless network that integrates with metering technology for advanced metering device management. It incorporates bridging, access points for clients, mesh networking, secure encryption and a rugged infrastructure design that protects from tampering and exposure to the weather by mounting the equipment inside a weather-tight, lockable enclosure. It also supports VLANs allowing for multiple users with varying levels of authorisation and applied security policies, and PoE reduced installation cost and expedited implementation.

The WiFiProtect AMI is used in standardised applications when connectivity is needed to support deployed equipment and provides a capability to connect between AMI equipment and a deployed network. The appliance’s Ethernet input communicates with industry energy management equipment using common protocols. A secure wireless interface then communicates with local networks to support local and remote AMI equipment.

The WiFiProtect AMI offers a high-performance portfolio of FIPS validated secure wireless mesh devices relied upon by military and industrial applications for continual connectivity and optimal security at all times.

WiFiProtect Gateway

Multi-radio secure wireless mesh platform.

Our WiFiProtect Gateway is a next-generation and highly secure wireless mesh node that provides seamless voice, video and data communications in the most challenging environments. Ideally suited to support a vast range of network topographies and dynamic tactical network applications, WiFiProtect products can be configured as a mesh node, bridge, access point or client capable of simultaneously communicating with IP-based devices such as transmitters, laptops, outdoor IP cameras, radio-frequency identification (RFID) readers or sensors.

At link rates of up to 450 Mbps per radio, the WiFiProtect Gateway provides a self-forming, self-healing wireless mesh network solution while shielding vulnerable radio links from sniffing through government certified encryption technologies.

WiFiProtect Manager

Wireless device management software

Managing a network can be a labor-intensive experience of provisioning new equipment, updating and backing up configurations, changing credentials, and monitoring health and status. WiFiProtect Manager simplifies this process by providing a single window through which to perform all of these actions, and more, in an intuitive and secure manner. From this single window, WiFiProtect Manager helps reduce installation, operation and maintenance costs by consolidating the numerous tasks which naturally result from simultaneously managing multiple non-integrated networks. Access to WiFiProtect Manager’s capabilities is via any compatible web-browser which means deployment across a network is easy with no additional software installation required.

Deployment

WiFiProtect Manager is deployed as a Virtual Machine.

Device monitoring

The WiFiProtect Manager can automatically discover newly installed devices and incorporate them into a comprehensive topology map so its view is always up to date. In addition, users have several options on how to display topology views, such as by device type, wireless network, or VLAN. The device view can be arranged in hierarchical, circular, random or orthogonal topology, so users can see the impact of each device and fine-tune its placement in the network for varying effect. An overview window provides a summary of deployment, while a zooming view allows for a detailed view of any part of the network. The links between devices are coloured to represent different signal levels and individual device settings are easily accessible from the Web interface.

Key distribution

The WiFiProtect Manager is capable of generating and distributing encryption keys to selected wireless devices. Through the job-scheduling feature key generation & distribution can be scheduled to routinely occur per the user’s request. Keys can be generated either internally in software, externally by a high-entropy hardware security module.

Device control

WiFiProtect helps perform individual and group management tasks across a wide range of devices, such as re-booting, resetting, or radio silence. Radio frequency (RF) transmissions from wireless devices must be eliminated during certain scenarios, such as during weapons testing or fueling. The WiFiProtect Manager can control when power is transmitted from wireless devices, allowing RF transmissions to be turned off when required.

Firmware management

Multiple versions of device firmware can be stored in the application, simplifying storage and minimising upgrade maintenance. A firmware repository screen in the Web interface provides an easy view of firmware versions that are loaded into different devices so users have a clear view of the network software history as well as upgrades.

Job scheduling

The job management screen allows for easy job scheduling and traditional planned network maintenance activities. Certain scheduled tasks such as encryption key management, VLAN security, bridge security, TX on/off and firmware upgrades can be planned in advance to relieve the burden of last minute IT management tasks.

Multi-level user credentials

Different levels of user credentials can be set to allow partial access to the tool, giving the Network Administrator the ability to provide varying degrees of access to different levels of users. This streamlines related Administrative tasks, allowing the Network Administrator to make wholesale updates or modifications per user group.​
