Kestrel II lets you establish deployed networks with two major benefits. You increase your bandwidth and availability. And you simultaneously save time and money while eliminating training needs.
The system enables all your secure deployed voice, video and data requirements by integrating components that deliver high assurance networks with the latest commercial radio, mobile cellular and cryptographic technologies. Each is fully configurable to open standards (plug and play), guaranteeing end-to-end connectivity worldwide.
Kestrel II is already in action, outperforming expectations in live military tasks in the UK and abroad.
Latest commercial IP Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) radios with integrated video and Wi-Fi technologies.
Latest mobile cellular technology for public or private networks.
Bearer Of Opportunity. Intelligent mobile, multi-SIM, aggregation and bonding cellular routers for assured broadband connectivity.
Point-To-Point. High-capacity microwave mesh radios.
Wi-Fi and Li-Fi distributed LAN services.
Full component, network, system, and service integration to functional design specifications that are mapped to your requirements.
Our Secure Mobility package delivers a high capacity black IP core data network across public mobile networks and the internet, with the ability to fall back on to wired broadband or satellite communications for assured network availability - whenever and wherever you need it in the UK or overseas. It provides accredited secure voice, video and messaging services.
It's the practical, reliable way to extend commercial, military or emergency service networks to the tactical mobile edge.
Managed SIM services, with multiple public mobile service providers within the relevant country are included as part of the Secure Mobility package. And you can hand the entire running of Secure Mobility to us with our fully-hosted network administration and encryption key and management service.
And should you desire you can hand the entire running of Secure Mobility to us with our fully-hosted network administration and encryption key and management service.
We deliver scalable, private, wide area networks anywhere you choose. It will cater for large numbers of mobile users in constant transit. And provide for high capacity data consumption with near zero latency.
Our deployable small cell LTE solutions have already deployed to austere locations in the UK and overseas, supporting real-time virtual reality military training.
Services are enabled by man-portable base stations in a self-forming mesh network that supports unrestricted roaming. Utilising Kestrel MESH as the transmission layer and a virtualised evolved packet core (EPC) architecture, deployable LTE is a resilient capability where the man or vehicle can become a node in a multi-domain deployable LTE network of the future.
The days of laying expensive fibre or Ethernet are gone, because we can provide a secure wireless HQ wherever it's needed. Be it from a building of opportunity or a pitched tent, our high-capacity, assured, resilient and scalable LTE network will connect all your mission critical users.
And there's no need to compromise on the information you have access to by consuming multi-security domain fixed network services in the deployed headquarters environment.
Our system uses Kestrel MESH and Kestrel CELL. Resilience is provided through a virtualised evolved packet core (EPC) architecture within a distributed small cell network and an intelligent antenna system that will counter hostile interference.
Whether or not you choose us to design and install your network, we can still provide unified network encryption management and integration including:
With a long history of network design, technical problem solving, system integration and service support, we can bring significant capability to bear to help you with any network support requirements. Our rigorous engineer design processes, ITIL, Prince 2 and ISO certified Quality Management Systems ensure that we always provide a truly professional, reliable, cost-eective service.
