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 TeraStreamtm linkages.

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.

Key Features:
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.
