Fleet Space teams up with Cog Systems on satellite-connected IoT security

By

Australia’s Fleet Space Technologies is partnering with global IoT cyber security company Cog Systems in a move designed to advance the security of satellite-connect IoT devices.

Under the deal, Fleet will deploy Cog’s D4 secure platform on trial projects around the world to provide proactive kernel protection, radio isolation for satellite communications and a VPN tunnel to ensure secure data transport for the Fleet devices.

And, as a final step, Cog will isolate other sensors so they only draw battery power when a certain event is executed.

“We were drawn to Cog’s D4 Secure platform because of its ability to use modularity to isolate critical functions on cutting-edge IoT devices like ours,” said Flavia Tata Nardini, chief executive of Fleet.

“They are the perfect partner to increase device security as we focus on building the technology that will become the digital nervous system for our planet.”

“Fleet has taken satellite IoT and made it incredibly simple for organisations around the world,” said Carl Nerup, co-founder and chief marketing officer for Cog.

“At Cog, we recognise that any remote device connected by satellite needs an extra layer of security. Our focus is on optimising the devices for performance and reduced latency, while adding defence grade security. It is a distinct honor that Fleet selected Cog as their security partner.”

The Adelaide-based Fleet Space Technologies announced last week that it was preparing to launch the first of two nano satellites, Centauri I, this year.

Fleet announced today that the first satellite would be launched aboard an Indian Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle by Antrix/ISRO and the second nanosatellite, Centauri II, would launch on Spaceflight's SSO-A mission on a SpaceX Falcon 9 from Vandenberg Air Force Base no earlier than the second half of 2018.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
