09 May 13. Tecore Networks announced its RAVEN Platform, a tactical solution delivering macro 3G/4G wireless service for rapidly deployable communications. The RAVEN leverages a size optimized all-IP based architecture, delivering the most compact, adaptable, and cost-effective rapid response tactical platform. The highly portable mobile platform is small enough to qualify as carry-on luggage on most airlines. Each RAVEN system provides voice, text, MMS, and megabit internet services for local users as a standalone system or as part of a larger communications network. The recent focus on establishing a Bring Your Own Device “BYOD” environment within the government and military, has shined a light on the risks of cyber-attacks as well as the importance of information assurance. With the RAVEN, BYOD is simplified and secured by allowing users to “Bring Your Own Network” BYON as well. With control of the wireless network and device, secured communications can extend out to the first tactical mile, avoiding the risk of traversing unsecured networks. Enabling multiple levels of encrypted communications, the RAVEN supports integrated security enclaves that can be controlled locally or from the cloud. (Source: Yahoo!/BUSINESS WIRE)
