General Dynamics Mission Systems has introduced its FortressÂ® Wireless Gateway, allowing users to connect quickly and securely to a wireless network to enhance and extend wireless network coverage, the company said.
Designed as a secure communications gateway for tactical, public safety and industrial applications, the Wireless Gateway provides connectivity, roaming and mesh networking capabilities, in both licensed and unlicensed spectrum, for Wi-Fi and LTE networks.
