Fortress Technologies Launches Infrastructure Mesh Point, 4.4GHz Military Band Solutions

Company Brings Secure, Net-Centric Wireless Communications to Outdoor Environments

LANSDOWNE, VA--(Marketwire - August 19, 2009) - Fortress Technologies, the leader in secure tactical wireless communications, today announced two new solutions to its product portfolio that enable secure, net-centric wireless communications in outdoor environments. The Fortress ES440 Infrastructure Mesh Point and ES520 Secure Wireless Bridge with 4.4GHz capability securely extend the reach of government networks across long distances and to austere outdoor locations.

"Network access is imperative for today's emergency response and forward deployed organizations," said Janet Kumpu, President, Fortress. "When responding to a crisis or deploying for a mission, agencies require the ability to securely and effectively extend their reach outdoors. Fortress' ES440 Infrastructure Mesh Point meets that need by linking multiple distant locations in areas where the traditional wired approach is simply not practical. In deployed tactical environments, the new ES520 Secure Wireless Bridge offers an efficient and reliable mode of voice, video, and data communications over the licensed 4.4 GHz band."

Providing simultaneous network access and backhaul, the ES440 Infrastructure Mesh Point is delivered in a small and rugged form factor with four powerful radios delivering industry-leading radio range and FIPS 140-2 compliant security. One of Fortress' cornerstone solutions, the ES520 Secure Wireless Bridge is an all-in-one network access device combining the functions of a wireless access point, network bridge, Ethernet switch, and security gateway. This new model is equipped with the capability to transmit over the 4.4 GHz military licensed band, which limits interference that negatively affects network performance.

Fortress is showcasing these new solutions at LandWarNet on August 20, 2009 at 9:45am. Located at the Greater Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, the company is also announcing four other new products during the show.
