Re: IA Specialists’/Sub U System’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response and Status
Dear Valued Customer,
As COVID-19 continues to affect us all, I would like to take a moment to update you on IAS/Sub U’s operational status, and our commitment to our customers and partners.
IAS is practicing a people first approach, with the safety of our employees and customers being of highest importance. While the majority of our employees are telecommuting, we are operating at full capacity both in production and customer support. Our dedicated team remains available and committed to supporting you, our valued customers, so you can maintain and expand operations in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Understanding that high availability secure communications are mission critical to most of our customers, IAS is working closely with our supply chain partners to maintain and where possible, accelerate the production of our secure communications products and solutions to support the significant increase in emergency response operations and telecommuters.
As of this writing IAS is accepting orders for a small subset of our overall product portfolio in an effort to make sure we get secured communications equipment to those who need it ASAP. We are accepting orders for
- Legacy IAS STEW and the new IAS STEW-R for use in CSfC and Type 1 applications
- IAS Tactical Field Office solution that includes
- IAS Software Definable Networking Appliance™ (SDN-A) Half Rack Width (HRW),
- IAS Xeon HRW Compute nodes
- And a few other partner based HRW appliances
We feel that by narrowing our product focus during this time we will be able to better serve our customers with far shorter than normal production lead times.
Additionally, in the next few days IAS will announce a product that we have been quietly working on that fills the need for a lower cost Sub U Systems VPN Gateway/router with built in AT&T FirstNet/Verizon/T-Mobile radio support.
For more information on how we can help you, please call (202) 640-2623 or email [email protected].
We will continue to keep you informed of any changes to our business operations and product stock levels for rapid deployments. In the meantime, stay safe and be well.
Keir Tomasso & IAS Team
