By CIOReview | Wednesday, April 20, 2016

ATLANTA, GA:  DataPath, a provider of remote field communications and information technology solutions to the aerospace, government, broadcast, and infrastructure markets, has announced the launch of a series of Gateway Access Transportable Equipment (GATE) networking kits. DataPath offers a range of both custom and commercial off-the-shelf field communications and information technology products, including satellite communication systems, network management software, and cyber security services. 

DataPath GATE-5000 ruggedized kit can be used with either satellite or cellular connectivity and this facility provides the users with one consolidated access point to the Internet, public switched telephone network and secure virtual private networks (VPNs).  The kit's transportability and simplified user panel make the solution ideal for remote operations such as newsgathering, government and military, disaster recovery, and oil and gas applications.

The kits are compatible with any Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) and they also complement DataPath’s modular and easy to install portable satellite communications terminals. Each GATE-5000 system is completely self-contained in one, airline-checkable transit case that can be transported by one person.

"Our customers need solutions engineered with both flexibility and ease-of-use," said David Myers, President and CEO of DataPath.  "We are proud to introduce the GATE-5000 product line, which is fully customizable to each customer's application environment.  By incorporating a simplified user panel, end users can connect their remote operation by satellite or cellular quickly and easily, no matter where their mission may take them."

The other variant GATE-5100 can be equipped with the transmitter’s preferred modem and encoding device. The customized tool kit can consolidate a modem, Cisco router, 10-port Ethernet switch, simultaneous 2.4 and 5 GHz wireless LAN, multimode 3G and 4G LTE wireless WAN, and Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) for voice and fax all into a simple, easy to deploy system.
