The Challenge of Tactical Edge Communications

Before Acuity, setting up communications and IT in adverse conditions required truckloads of equipment and up to 20 or more personnel. In the event of an emergency caused by natural disaster or act of war, it could take weeks or even months to set up reliable communications. Tactical teams were often forced to use ad-hoc solutions that were not interoperable, leaving even more issues to resolve.

The SMART Advantage

The Acuity edge solution is Software-defined, Mobile, Agile, Rugged and Tactical (SMART). In addition to these robust SMART features, Acuity combines best-of-breed technology with mobility and efficiency to ensure readiness in a one-person carry form factor. Together with leading technology partners, Acuity ensures security, ease-of-use, superior voice and video, mission-critical application access, and quick connectivity.

These characteristics make Acuity ideal for environments where Disrupted, Intermittent and Limited (DIL) communication conditions persist.

With the Acuity Micro Data Center, battlefield commanders and tactical teams can control their area of responsibility (AOR), providing a strategically designed extension of the host data center versus trying to assemble ad-hoc systems with multiple solutions.

Lightweight and rugged, Acuity is a 50-person micro-data center equipped with a full communications suite with the following capabilities:

  • Unified communications (Voice and Video)
  • Identity management
  • Session migration
  • Load balancing and failover
  • Secure vector routing
  • Micro-/hyper-segmentation
  • Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)
  • Replacement for Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) and VPN
  • Centralized management (automation and orchestration)
  • Open standard/architecture
  • Secured voice gateway
  • Windows active directory services
  • Exchange 2016 and Outlook
  • Private and public cloud

Operationally flexible:

  • Use Acuity as edge device or a local data center
  • Run applications locally, remote applications on another Acuity unit, or back end services at your main data center
  • Create a cluster of Acuity units to share performance
  • Work standalone and automatically sync data when connection is restored
