Press Release Summary:
Successfully evaluated by U.S. Air Force for alarmed PDS applications,1U HC508 Alarm Processor Unit provides additional layer of protection to hardened carrier protective distribution systems for government and other high-security networks. System fits standard size rack and is capable of protecting 8 zones of fiber optic or copper cable infrastructure. Each zone consists of single-strand sensing cable design, eliminating need for loop-back cable in cable carrier.
Original Press Release:
New Alarm Processor Unit Receives "Acceptability for Use" Status in Air Force PDS Applications
(SAN DIEGO) Holocom, the leader in protective distribution systems (PDS) for SIPRNet and other classified computer networks, and Fiber SenSys, the leader in fiber-optic sensor technology, announced today that the U.S Air Force successfully evaluated the new HC508 Alarm Processor Unit (APU) for alarmed PDS applications.
The evaluation was performed by members of the U.S. Air Force CTTA office at Scott Air Force Base.
The Holocom/Fiber SenSys team demonstrated the 508 with four cable carriers: Holocom 2"x2" two-piece Secure Raceway; Holocom solid tube Secure Mini Dukt™; one-inch steel EMT; and flexible interlocking armored fiber-optic cable. The multi-strand cable option allows for the application of the HC508 in "dark fiber" installations.
"Holocom has always embraced the philosophy of offering solutions that perform at the highest level of security yet offer an affordable option," said Holocom president, Scott Beeson. "The current sequestration and budget uncertainty add even greater validation to that philosophy in support of our government customers requiring an alarmed PDS solution."
The Fiber SenSys/Holocom co-branded HC508 provides an additional layer of protection to hardened carrier protective distribution systems for government and other high-security networks. The 1U 508 fits a standard size rack and is capable of protecting eight zones of fiber optic or copper cable infrastructure. Each zone consists of single-strand sensing cable design, eliminating the need for loop-back cable in the cable carrier. The system also includes enhanced tuning and calibration software for the elimination of nuisance alarms and modern communications capability.
