RAD, a global enabler in secure communications solutions for critical infrastructure, and ASPIDER-NGI, a leading IoT mobile virtual network enabler (MVNE) which is now part of KORE Wireless, has introduced a joint solution that combines RAD’s recently released SecFlow-1v secure industrial IoT (IIoT) gateway with Edge Computing capabilities and ASPIDER-NGI’s advanced eSIM.
The SecFlow-1v is part of RAD’s Service Assured Networking (SAN) solution for critical infrastructure.
The joint solution allows immediate deployment of large-scale automated systems, such as RTUs, smart meter aggregation devices, load breakers, traffic control sensors, CCTV cameras, point of sale devices, and more, with advanced visibility, control and cyber defense – anywhere in the world.
“By bringing together secure Edge Computing that is specifically designed for mission-critical environments and operator-independent global managed connectivity, we offer an innovative approach to effectively address IIoT’s big three challenges: Security, automated operational processes and actionable data usability,” says Ophir Fux, VP Critical Infrastructure Division at RAD.
“Not only do we secure all remote connections and allow remote visibility into all devices on the network with unified management and smart threat response, but we also enable on-demand availability and real-time, automated life cycle management. Essentially, we provide everything that today’s IIoT environments require.”
“As a specialised IoT Provider, our collaboration with RAD is an ideal fit,” says Jan Mooijman, Managing Director at ASPIDER-NGI, a KORE Wireless Group business unit. “Our universal eSIM is integrated in RAD’s next generation secure IIoT gateway to provide a flexible, ruggedized and cost-effective joint solution that deals with growing IIoT connectivity and security challenges. The on-board SIM cards are pre-provisioned, so that the secure IIoT gateway is ready to go right out of the box, making for truly fast deployments.”
Part of RAD’s Service Assured Networking (SAN) solution for critical infrastructure, the SecFlow-1v spokes are deployed at the network’s edge, working with RAD’s SecurityGateway hub and VPN aggregator. They share threat intelligence and security event logs across all protected IIoT devices with the RADview security and event management suite.
KORE/ASPIDER-NGI’s remote SIM management allows for deployments in hard-to-reach or hazardous environments, while remote profile management enables constant optimisation of the available cellular provider’s network service. With its global ecosystem of local operators, ASPIDER-NGI provides unparalleled service reach, as billing issues are handled via the eConnect system. In addition, location-based profile selection increases device production efficiency.
RAD and ASPIDER-NGI’s joint solution is available now to industrial IoT system integrators around the world.
