RIVERSIDE, CA—Radio IP Software Inc., the leader in secure wireless data connection-ware solutions for mobile government, announced that it is co-hosting the Broadband Wireless Conference for Public Safety and Public Access in Riverside, CA. The other co-hosts are vendors in the broadband industry, a consortium which includes InfiNet Wireless, Lockheed Martin Information Technology, Public Safety Broadband and Wi-Fi Citywide.
The one-day event—considered a “must-attend” for public safety officials, municipal IT professionals, technology end-users, wireless service providers, system integrators, dealers and consultants—will feature a live demonstration of an integrated 4.9 GHz Public Safety / 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi Public Access network, using cutting edge equipment and services supplied by members of the consortium.
Radio IP Software’s contribution to the consortium is its flagship connection-ware solution, Radio IP MTG™, offering the city of Riverside Mobile VPN and roaming capabilities over both its broadband and private RF wireless networks.
Radio IP Software’s Mobile VPN differentiates itself from other VPNs currently available on the market. The former creates the VPN tunnel prior to any domain or username information being transmitted over the air. Since Radio IP Software’s Mobile VPN was designed to be device-based, user authentication attempts can only be made if Radio IP MTG has validated the device and opened an encrypted tunnel. Other VPNs wait to open a secure transmission only after the user has authenticated to the network, thus leaving their username, domain and password information easily intercepted. This fundamental difference in approach underscores the company’s ongoing commitment to provide secure wireless connections across all levels of mobile government.
RadioRoam®, the roaming module in Radio IP MTG, gives organizations the ability to take advantage of high-speed broadband networks, all while leveraging interoperability with their existing private radio network. RadioRoam lets mobile users automatically and seamlessly switch between any number of wireless networks without losing connection to headquarters and ensuring Mobile VPN persistence.
“Radio IP MTG and RadioRoam fill an unavoidable gap in a public safety Mesh network deployment, which is inherently unsecure particularly when doubling as a public access network,” said Mike Bourre, vice president of sales and marketing at Radio IP Software.
“Providing the highest standards of security to public safety, our Mobile VPN was actually designed specifically for the mobile government sector. Agencies can not risk using a sub-standard solution as it leaves them vulnerable to attacks,” Bourre said.
