Note: Comtech Acquired TCS on 2/23/2016

ANNAPOLIS, MD, Dec 12, 2011 --TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS), a world leader in highly reliable and secure mobile communication technology, today introduced its TotalCom™ portfolio, which has been developed to enable seamless, highly secure voice, video and data communication among fixed sites and remote operations. TotalCom solutions include portable, deployable products, managed satellite services, integrated global support, information assurance and applications over any type of network. They enable individuals on the ground, vehicles, aircraft and command centers to shape collected information into a coherent, accurate situation assessment.

TCS TotalCom Portfolio:

  • TCS secure line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight RF communications, next-generation Tactical Transportable TROPO, Wireless Point-to-Point (PTP) and Point-to-Multipoint (PMP) systems enable the extension of secure LAN to remote locations.
  • Global meshed satellite connectivity, which employs both traditional bent pipe technology and seamless IP satellite networking through TCS' exclusive first commercially available network to take advantage of Cisco's Internet Routing in Space [IRIS] technology on Intelsat-14, using TCS' global network of teleports and dedicated networks.
  • Home station in-building distributed antenna systems that capture cellular and radio signals from outside the building and retransmit them inside the building.
  • Professional services, including deployable systems field support and other integrated logistics support, cyber security training and assessment, and continuity of operations capability (COOP) by TCS-certified and cleared personnel, who have served as trusted advisors to key government agencies since the company's inception nearly 25 years ago.

New Secure Comms Products: TCS is introducing Impact Tactical and SwiftCell Lite ™, two innovative products developed to ensure secure communication from the core to the edge of the network.

Impact Tactical:

  • The TCS Impact Tactical IP Terminal is the smallest ruggedized communications kit to date in the TCS family of products. Its features include a modular design that allows efficient adaptation as user requirements change for vehicles, rack-mount, tents, etc. with plug-and-play ease.
  • The Impact Tactical kit is classification agnostic, allowing physical separation between systems, and offering a compact, lightweight design and tool-less installation.

SwiftCell Lite:

  • SwiftCell Lite is a completely self-contained cellular network housed in a small, discrete ruggedized case. An intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) offers simple operation with powerful capabilities for complete network customization, while a 40 GB solid-state internal hard drive delivers unrivaled durability.
  • In a matter of minutes after powering up SwiftCell Lite, users can communicate privately on their own cellular network, regardless of the terrain or environment, enabling users to call each other, send SMS text messages and share other vital information just as if they were on a commercially provided cellular network.
  • Optional WAN Ethernet-based connectivity enables secure reachback into the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and global wireless carrier infrastructure, allowing users to communicate with any phone anywhere in the world; with options for encrypted voice, text and data across the network.
