RAD, secure communications provider for critical infrastructure, and ASPIDER-NGI, a mobile virtual network enabler (MVNE), released a joint solution that combines RAD’s SecFlow-1v secure industrial IoT (IIoT) gateway with edge computing capabilities and ASPIDER-NGI’s advanced eSIM.
SecFlow-1v is part of RAD’s Service Assured Networking (SAN) solution for critical infrastructure. The joint solution allows immediate deployment of large-scale automated systems, such as RTUs, smart meter aggregation devices, load breakers, traffic control sensors, CCTV cameras, point of sale devices, with advanced visibility, control, and cyber defense on a global basis.
“By bringing together secure edge computing that is specifically designed for mission-critical environments and operator-independent global managed connectivity, we offer an innovative approach to effectively address IIoT’s big three challenges: Security, automated operational processes, and actionable data usability,” said Ophir Fux, vice president of critical infrastructure division at RAD. “Not only do we secure all remote connections and allow remote visibility into all devices on the network with unified management and smart threat response, but we also enable on-demand availability and real-time, automated life cycle management.”
“As a specialized IoT provider, our collaboration with RAD is an ideal fit,” said Jan Mooijman, managing director at ASPIDER-NGI, a KORE Wireless Group business unit. “Our universal eSIM is integrated in RAD’s next generation secure IIoT gateway to provide a flexible, ruggedized, and cost-effective joint solution that deals with growing IIoT connectivity and security challenges. The on-board SIM cards are pre-provisioned so that the secure IIoT gateway is ready to go right out of the box, making for truly fast deployments.”
SecFlow-1v spokes are deployed at the network’s edge, working with RAD’s SecurityGateway hub and VPN aggregator. They share threat intelligence and security event logs across all protected IIoT devices with the RADview security and event management suite.
KORE/ASPIDER-NGI’s remote SIM management allows for deployments in hard-to-reach or hazardous environments, while remote profile management enables constant optimization of the available cellular provider’s network service.
