SECURE, HIGH PERFORMANCE, POWER-EFFICIENT COMMUNICATION NETWORKS
FTL Systems' networking products use many of the mid-range processors also used
in FTL Systems' computer systems. The additional processor speed facilitates
signal processing at carrier frequencies. By processing telecommunications in
general purpose processors it is much easier to remotely install updates to
handle new protocols and enhancements.
A seamless integration with FTL Systems Application Specific suites (hardware
and software) facilitates initial system bring-up and life-cycle maintenance.
Other than FTL Systems' optical, wired and wireless client, our products
work with popular smart devices and industry standard networking interfaces.
Heavy reliance on industry standards and FTL-specific enhancements to industry
standards facilitates rapid customer integration and upgrades. Primary
wireless interfaces include 4G LTE, 5G and WiFi (802.11). Primary optical
and wired interfaces include 100G, 10G, 1G, 10/100 and FTL Systems' unique
The switch chassis are versions of the industry standard Advanced Telecommunication
Architecture (ATCA) in full size and micro. Auxillary disk systems provide for
traffic buffering and streaming content (such as movies and cloud storage). Voice
communication leverages industry-standard "voice over internet packet" (VOIP)
technology using third party phones. FTL Systems' chassis are designed to be
upward compatible with many existing ATCA and micro-ATCA line cards. User interfaces
utilize Linux and OSX graphical user interfaces.
FTL Systems' telecommunication products are being redesigned and going into volume
manufacture over the next three years in NW Europe using greater than 95% European
and Asian components. This provides for higher security and long term stability.
FTL SYSTEMS' TeraStreamTM secure networking
architecture assumes partitioning into distinct security
compartments based on the kind of information contained,
transmitted and processed. Multi-level gateways deliver
informed packet filtering and potentially secure tunneling
between physical locations via Virtual Private Networks (VPN).
Switches (conventional or TeraStream) route internet packets
over optical, copper or wireless pathways. Switches may
further partition packet traffic based on internet packet (IP)
addresses, ports, subnets or other attributes. Connections
range from convention 10/100 and Gigabit edge devices up
to FTL Systems' unique TeraBit edge connections.
Today's world depends on secure, point-to-point transfer of
web, data and email. FTL Systems focuses on secure encapsultion
of information while stored, processing or in transit.
Domain Name Servers (DNS) translate between human readable
network names, such as ftlsystems.eu, and machine-readable
devices (IPV4 and IPV6). As a colateral service, DNS can
also provide validation and dynamic assignment of machine-readable
addresses (DHCP) as well as network security credentials. Our
primary focus is on Linux and OSX systems with legacy support
for Windows clients.
Network security is only as good as security of the
clients and servers authenticated to the network.
Out-of-band attacks such as taking a digital photo
of a secure screen using an insecure device can
defeat even the most comprehensive network security.
While FTL Systems is not in the hand-held device
business we work with third parties to maximize the
total system security.
Physical security must go along with network security.
We can suggest independent third parties who can provide
shielding against un-intended emissions and attack via
radiated electro-magnetic spectrums. These third parties
build Secure Compartmentalized Information Facilities
for corporations. Our strategic approach depends on end-to-end
encryption when communication between facilities.
