Securing Buildings News

Ottawa, Canada, November 10, 2008 - Precidia Technologies Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of Internet Protocol (IP) payment and networking products, announced today the launch of the EtherCell™, a secure access device. The EtherCell is designed to facilitate secure external access to a mission-critical IP device or application. This capability allows network administrators to access equipment from a remote location, without compromising network security.

Often used as a replacement for dial-in modems and PCs, the EtherCell leverages protocol conversion technology, receiving or setting up a PPP connection via its RS232 port, using a cellular or analog modem. The EtherCell's Ethernet port is connected to the required device, providing secure, low cost access from outside the network. Ideal for devices without access to dial modems, the EtherCell is designed to communicate with only the connected device. By setting up a demilitarized zone (DMZ), the EtherCell firewalls the rest of the network.

Several of Precidia's PBX Dealers use the EtherCell to support PBX systems in hospitality and other environments. This capability is particularly useful when broadband Internet access is not available, due to security concerns. Resellers can easily access the PBX remotely for maintenance tasks using a dial-in modem and existing IP management systems.

Control Solutions, Inc Precidia President Deepak Wanner says that the EtherCell is used in a range of applications requiring secure external network access: "The EtherCell's primary advantage is to network administrators who require 'emergency' access to a mission critical IP device or application from outside the network", said Mr. Wanner. "Other applications include ethernet-based utility meters, which can be accessed using an operator's cell phone, to retrieve data or manage the device".
