Maintaining high assurance cyber defences across the whole organisation is a serious concern to IT and communications security professionals. Should circumstances dictate that users have to be deployed outside the fixed infrastructure and especially if the deployment has to take place rapidly in response to an emergency, then AEP has a wide range of tactical communications and encryption solutions that are designed to ensure cyber defences are maintained in the field, even in high threat environments.
Mission critical systems must be able to maintain connectivity whatever the reason for the communications loss. AEP’s communications systems offer features such as auto bearer roaming that automatically track available communications paths and switch to the next available connection in the event of loss of service. This, together with tunnelling techniques that hide the underlying traffic characteristics, enables communications to be maintained even where the system is exposed to determined denial of service attacks or ISP data blocking.
The Defence version provides armed forces with a fully functional office capability anywhere in the world through the creation of the ‘Field Service Pack (FSP) the Concentrator Service Pack (CSP) and the Mini FSP. The office environment is rugged, secure and fully deployable, whether by air, land or sea, with all the elements of the solution contained within an environmentally hardened case approved to defence standards. The solution allows the users to conform more successfully to the principles of modern expeditionary operations, particularly military and peacekeeping deployments, with true freedom of movement without the reliance on fixed telephone lines. Locations can be changed at will, safe in the knowledge that a strategic communications link could be established within minutes of arriving in a new location.
The Personal version is a small and light, single user remote access solution, comprising an intelligent communications router, with separate optional high assurance IPSec encryptor, together with rechargeable battery power, all contained within a portable, laptop-style shoulder bag.
Designed for organisations that have a need to provide a reliable two-way information flow between remote users and centralised IT facilities, HQ’s or command and control centres.

Managing complex infrastructures is an increasing challenge for IT professionals. This is especially true for diverse enterprises that cater for mobile users that require central, secure connectivity regardless of where they are located. Ultra Communicate range of management products include:
MegaWATCH is an SNMP software-based Network Management Application designed and developed by AEP Networks. Running on Microsoft Windows, it allows network administrators to monitor the complete network, and gather useful information about the condition and status of any SNMP-compatible devices that have been deployed on a network.
The VadEDGE platform supports a wide range of protocols, WAN and user interfaces. This enables customers to aggregate and effectively deliver multiple service streams over almost any bearer communications medium including GSM, PSTN, ISDN, Leased Line and Satellite (VSAT).
Combining voice (analogue and/or digital) with packet data services such as fax, IP, POS, ATM and now GSM with GPS support, VadEDGE efficiently and cost effectively manages bandwidth through dynamic packet fragmentation and compresses voice to 7Kbps whilst ensuring Quality of Service. As a consequence, regardless of whether they’re located at a regional office, remote branch or even deployed to a location miles from civilisation, workers are able to communicate swiftly, clearly and securely with central control teams and send/receive data that enables them to fulfil their role.
The AEP MegaPAC V-IX platform is a new generation of product, which is able to leverage high-end processors while protecting the skills our customers have in the operating system. Although we have introduced a user-friendly interface the essential strengths of our operating system are preserved. Large networks typically require complex configurations and as they expand become increasingly dependant on the ability to easily manage these while maintaining the flexibility of adequate processing power. The architecture features a 16-slot high speed cPCI BUS based on the PICMG 2.16 standard. All modules are hotswap with an option for a second standby/failover CPU. Each MegaPAC V-IX chassis supports up to 80 serial ports at speeds of 2Mbps and dual Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. The clustering function enables even higher redundancy to be added, if required. Up to 4 MegaPAC V-IX chassis can be configured in a single cluster with automatic configuration synchronisation across all systems.
