Original Press Release:
Holocom Unveils Alarmed Carrier at Fort Huachuca
(SAN DIEGO) Holocom, the leader in protective distribution systems (PDS) for SIPRNet and other classified networks, presented and demonstrated the new Holocom HC508 Alarm Processor Unit (APU) at the 30th Annual AFCEA C4IST Conference at Fort Huachuca, AZ.
The new HC508 is the first alarmed carrier PDS in the industry to enable up to eight fully independent protection zones from a single unit. Priced materially less than the principle industry competitor, the HC508 complies with the security requirements of the DoD and individual service branches. The HC508 may be used in conjunction with Holocom PDS, the de facto standard hardened carrier, as well as interlocking armored fiber optic cable when that option is specified. The HC508 protects both fiber optic and copper cable infrastructure.
Additional features and benefits of the HC508 include:
• Custom tuning calibration software that learns the environment and allows for elimination of nuisance alarms and false positives
• Single strand sensing cable design - no loopback required – for additional cost savings
• 1U design provides a small footprint; fits all standard 19” racks
• Full integration with head end / annunciation systems for a total system solution when combined with other security elements such as access control systems and other third-party devices
• Classified Passive Optical Network (C-PON™) capable
“John Burns, Holocom CEO, stated, “We recognized that the DoD is under extreme budgetary pressure, and that by offering a cost-effective alarm for our PDS, we would satisfy both their cost and operational requirements. Additionally, the HC508 can be configured for secure PON environments – what we call Classified PON or C-PON - so we are looking forward to providing that capability for this exciting application.”
