European Union Naval Force opts for secure communications solution

Share this article:

The European Union Naval Force has deployed a secure communications solution from AEP Networks.

Using AEP Networks' SCOPE SecComm solution, during field operations, secure communications equipment is airlifted onto participating ships, enabling officers to send highly confidential data securely over the best available network.

The SCOPE SecComm device determines automatically which network to connect to using predefined policies and once connected it can exploit 3G, broadband or satellite networks to send and receive secure IP traffic.

SCOPE SecComm is a small carry case containing an intelligent communications router, an IPsec encryptor and a rechargeable battery power pack.

A pan-European accredited encryption solution, AEP Networks' SCOPE SecComm is CAPS approved by CESG to NATO, EU and UK Confidential meaning that officers can access restricted and confidential data over widely available public mobile and wireless networks.

Mark Darvill, director at AEP Networks, said: “The challenge for any military organisation is to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of every type of communication, one hundred per cent of the time including voice, video and data. There is absolutely no room for error. When the successful transmission of data can make the difference between the success and failure of an operation, it's critical that the European Union Naval Force have the confidence and assurance that everything they transmit is secured to the highest level.”
