3e Technologies International - Military Wi-Fi and Wireless Mesh Voice, Video and Data Communication Systems

3e Technologies International (3eTI) is a leading provider of wireless networking solutions that are customized to fit the security challenges and voice, video and data communication requirements of armies around the world. The company designs and manufactures secure Wi-Fi and broadband products – including mesh network, access point, bridge and client infrastructure products – as well as security software.

Many 3eTI products meet the stringent requirements of the US Department of Defense, featuring FIPS 140-2, FIPS 802.11 and Common Criteria Validation™. They are suitable for government, military and homeland security applications for any army requiring secure communications via a stationary or portable wireless network.

The company has over ten years' experience developing secure, reliable wireless solutions for military and government organizations around the world.

Governments and militaries are continually seeking ways to better secure their physical assets and personnel and confidential information. To aid this pursuit, 3eTI specializes in government security-level wireless broadband solutions.

3eTI's Wireless LAN (WLAN) products and solutions meet rigorous US government security standards, including FIPS 140-2 and FIPS 802.11.

3eTI has also achieved many firsts in wireless technology, including becoming the first validated FIPS 140-2 layer two access point, and the first wireless supplier to receive National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) evaluation assurance level two common criteria validation for its WLAN access point and client software.

3eTI WLAN products are designed to provide force and critical infrastructure protection / management, as well as to improve the efficiency of base operations. Some examples of possible applications for government WLAN products are:

* Securing perimeters and information technology at military installations
* Wireless video surveillance to detect security risks domestically and abroad
* Wireless CBRNE sensoring / monitoring and asset tracking using RFID

For example, 3eTI helped streamline maintenance operations of the US Army Black Hawk helicopter program by installing FIPS 140-2 secure wireless communication between the flight line and the hangar. The 3eTI WLAN solutions rapidly transmitted equipment data to maintenance crews, and saved valuable pilot time by cutting the time spent preparing debriefing reports.

The US Department of Defense (DoD) directive number 8100.2 was issued on the 14th of April 2004, and went into effect immediately. The directive covers the use of commercial wireless devices, services, and technologies in the DoD Global Information Grid (GIG).

The directive spells out policies for deploying secure military wireless networks, and requires monitoring of those wireless networks for compliance. Military users of 3eTI's certified wireless networks can be assured that strong authentication, non-repudiation, and personal-identification security standards are inherent to their applications.

In addition to tailoring off-the-shelf solutions, 3eTI also develops custom secure military wireless network solutions to meet the specific wireless security needs of army technology customers.

If a troop requires mobile remote networking to enable soldiers and personnel to communicate while in vehicles or in the field, or an army company needs undercover surveillance equipment to monitor potentially hostile surroundings, 3eTI military wireless networks and custom solutions have the ability to overcome even the toughest military communication and / or security challenge.

3eTI's military wireless networks are designed to protect and secure data, assets, vital infrastructure and personnel in the most cost-effective manner possible. 3eTI integrated military wireless networks pass essential information to officers, soldiers and other army personnel so they may securely and effectively utilize communications to fulfill their duties.

3eTI's proven military wireless networks and solutions uphold even the highest security standards.
