Vocality Release Multi-Bearer Gateway Product

Vocality are pleased to announce the release of the latest generation of the ELITE Access multi-bearer product. The ELITE Access has undergone a complete software rebuild from the ground up and now runs on Vocality’s OPUS software platform.

The ELITE Access is the perfect travel companion for users of commercially sensitive or restricted computer devices. The integrated cellular, Wi-Fi and fixed line network connectivity, plus full support for satellite terminals, provides users with a wide range of simple to use connectivity options wherever they may be in the world.

Network devices, such as government restricted or commercially sensitive computers, can connect directly to the ELITE Access via a network cable, without any software installation required on to the device itself.

dministrators can configure the unit, to meet their internal IT policies, quickly and easily via the simple web GUI. The built-in touchscreen provides users with basic configuration options; allowing them to select the network they wish to use and, where required, enter username or password information (for instance a hotel Wi-Fi password) to gain access to the public network and on to their head office network.

“Going back to the drawing board and rewriting the ELITE Access software from the ground up was a difficult but important decision for Vocality, the new software provides a richer user experience, a host of new features and a rock solid platform for further product enhancements”
— Zoe Yates, Director of Product Management at Vocality

Intelligent network detection provides the ability for the ELITE Access to automatically detect available networks within range and connect using available networks, based on user priority. Administrators can define network priority, ensuring that the most suitable network is used and connectivity costs are kept to a minimum. If a network connection fails, the ELITE Access will automatically connect to the next available network type as defined by the administrator. If secure tunnels are being used the ELITE Access will also re-establish the secure connection automatically. Remote connectivity issues are reduced with users often unaware that the unit is switching between networks based on availability and administrator defined priority.

Security comes as standard with the ELITE Access. The device supports a wide range of industry standard IPSec tunnelling protocols and encryption algorithms, and is compatible with many government-supplied encryption devices.

Optimization and acceleration of traffic is also included, offering up to 65% bandwidth reduction on voice traffic and accelerating data download by up to 10x over high latency, low bandwidth links, such as satellite and some cellular networks.
