In early 2019, the NSA released new Advanced Cryptographic Capabilities (ACC) requirements that effectively ends support for the General Dynamics Sectera® Wireline Terminal (SWT) and the REDCOM SWT-R board. This creates a challenge for agencies that require access to red/black networks using a Type 1 gateway device or a Type 1 conferencing solution.
Continuity of Secure Communications with the REDCOM Secure Voice Gateway
REDCOM has solved this problem by developing the new Secure Device Interface (SDI) circuit card for the REDCOM HDX. Each Secure Device Interface board can connect with up to four standard production General Dynamics Sectéra® vIPer™ Phones, which act as voice encryptors for TDM or SIP voice networks. The encryptors allow any HDX line, trunk, or conference port to conduct secure voice communications with any SCIP-capable device, such as an SWT, STE, or Sectéra vIPer Phone. The REDCOM HDX supports up to 64 SDI ports per 5U modular switching unit (MSU). HDX MSUs may be stacked to allow for hundreds of SDI ports per system.
Existing REDCOM HDX customers with the REDCOM SWT-R board and GD SWT encryptors or customers with the REDCOM STE-R board and L-3 STE-R encryptors will be able to replace them with REDCOM’s new Secure Device Interface board and GD vIPer Secure Phones. This solution will enable agencies to maintain their REDCOM HDX as a Type 1 secure gateway or secure conferencing system with a minimal investment.
