New Subsentio™ Safe Harbor 10 Gb Probe Sets the Standard for Future of Lawful Intercept

Meeting the Universal Challenge of Capacity Constraint, High-Bandwidth Device Provides Competitively-Priced Lawful Intercept Alternative for Carriers -- Large or Small

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2014) - Subsentio today launched the Subsentio™ Safe Harbor 10 Gb Probe, providing communications companies with a low-cost, high-bandwidth option to meet technical requirements of the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) and other surveillance laws in the U.S. and worldwide. The first customer is a communications service provider operating in the U.S. Southwest.

Debuting at a time when all service providers feel the pressure and cost of network capacity constraints, the Subsentio™ Safe Harbor 10 Gb Probe provides a versatile yet affordable option for meeting CALEA compliance requirements. The new high capacity probe is offered as part of Subsentio's unique service bureau model, a complete solution that includes not just technology, but also legal support upon the service provider's receipt of a court order for lawful intercept, and experienced liaison with law enforcement agencies -- all for one low price.

"The Subsentio™ Safe Harbor 10 Gb Probe is the first device of its kind expressly designed, developed and distributed for service providers that use the 'trusted third party' approach to CALEA compliance," said Steve Bock, President of Subsentio. "As the latest addition to our service bureau portfolio, Subsentio's new high-powered probe gives service providers a budget-sensitive alternative that meets the full technical requirements of CALEA and the needs of law enforcement agencies."

Benefits of the Subsentio™ Safe Harbor 10 Gb Probe to communications service providers:

  • Safe Harbor Compliant. Complies with CALEA "safe harbor" standards for lawful intercepts, thus giving legal protection to service providers if their lawful intercept work is challenged by privacy interests or the government.
  • High Capacity. Provides 12 monitoring ports -- triple the number of the Subsentio Safe Harbor 1Gb Probe -- for a total of 20 Gb throughput, meeting a critical need of carriers operating in today's capacity-constrained network environment.
  • iPV4 and IPV6 Compatible. Comes ready-made for iPV4 and also iPV6 -- able to handle the expected surge in IPV6 addresses.
  • Affordable. Priced for small to medium-sized service providers by bundling the fees for the CALEA solution with the fees for the related CALEA compliance program and then spreading the costs over a large customer base.
  • Scalable. Accommodates rising intercept capacity demands for network operators of any size or type.

"Standards-based, easy to install and use, the Subsentio™ Safe Harbor 10 Gb Probe increases intercept capabilities by an order of magnitude," said Martin McDermott, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Customer Care. "The Subsentio™ Safe Harbor 10 Gb Probe scales to meet today's needs, and incorporates full future-proof IPv6 capability for the next generation of IP networks."

Technical features of the Subsentio™ Safe Harbor 10 Gb Probe include:

  • Twelve 1 Gb and 10 Gb interfaces.
  • CALEA compliance for Internet access providers, VoIP providers, and LTE operators.
  • Supports ATIS IAS and 678 CALEA standards.
  • Integrated provisioning requires no separate mediation system.
  • Integrated VPN reduces installation complexity.
  • Email alerts and notifications.
  • Buffering options selectable for each intercept.
