Epiq Solutions and IAS Announce Teaming Agreement to Develop Programmable, Highly Secure IP Router

Epiq Solutions and Information Assurance Specialists (IAS), two companies committed to providing low size, weight and power (SWaP), wireless solutions for mission critical applications, have signed a teaming agreement to collaborate on highly secure, small form factor IP routers with embedded software defined radio (SDR) technology. This new, portable product line is designed for government and military customers who require security for their communications and other wireless applications. Under the agreement, Epiq Solutions brings the SidekiqTMfamily of low-SWaP, extremely flexible RF transceivers to IAS’s light-weight, ruggedized MICRO and PICO IP routers, producing a powerful combination of SDR applications with NSA Suite B IPSec VPN Tunneling over a wide array of WAN technologies.

The two companies’ products are a natural fit with their shared focus on small size and low power solutions. Epiq Solutions’ Sidekiq SDR cards provide breakthrough small form-factor wideband RF transceivers for integration into portable systems that require flexible tuning ranges (70 MHz to 6 GHz) and on board processing and programmable logic. The IAS Router family is also ideal for portable systems, and are used in applications where secured enterprise or Department of Defense grade network connectivity is required.

“Putting our micro-miniature Sidekiq radios inside of IAS’s secure router products opens the door to a whole new world of possibilities for the customers and missions that we support,” stated Bill Sims, Director of Government Operations at Epiq Solutions. “Leveraging the TRL-9 products of both companies instantly enables wireless security for custom or turnkey applications running on Sidekiq, including our popular SkylightTMcellular survey tool.”

“Integrating the Epiq Solutions’ SDR radio technology into our secure IP Routers enables our Department of Defense and government customers to deploy hyper small RF collection and processing devices and securely backhaul data collected to another location anywhere in the world” said Keir Tomasso, president/CTO at IAS. “The addition of this unique capability is another example of our commitment to providing innovative technologies to support ever-evolving mission requirements.”

Epiq Solutions will be demonstrating an embedded Sidekiq within an IAS Router at Booth 521 for SOFIC in Tampa, FL, May 21 – 24, 2018.
