VoyagerECK

Mobile, lightweight executive and small team communications kit

VoyagerECK won the international design competition Red Dot Award for its sleek product design.

VoyagerECK

Enabling access to secure network resources on the go

The VoyagerECK (Executive Communications Kit) provides VoSIP and multi-enclave data capability in a small, portable, lightweight package. With its built-in cellular and Wi-Fi transport options, the VoyagerECK solution enables global access to secure network resources even when a user is on the move. Furthermore, VoyagerECK is easy to use with an average set up time of less than three minutes. VoyagerECK also meets a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) requirement by allowing users to utilize their existing laptop computer.
The rapid set up and tear down time this VoyagerECK provides is crucial to providing communications while in a highly mobile situation. For example, I utilized the kit in an airport terminal while waiting for the aircraft to power up. We did not have enough time to set up other kits to send or receive messages.

More on the VoyagerECK

VoyagerECK provides familiar and robust Cisco-based routing and switching capabilities while remaining scalable and compatible with other Voyager chassis options. It combines these networking capabilities with a lightweight carbon fiber chassis, integrated power supply with battery backup and a rugged yet compact SIP handset. The innovative chassis design enables easy access to the handset for secure voice calls while keeping other networking components and HAIPE organized and concealed until needed.

DISA DECTK-Gateway, APL and CSfC

The VoyagerECK is listed on the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Approved Products List, has been authorized for use and currently operates on DISA’s DoD Enterprise Classified Travel Kit Gateway (DECTK-GW), and is primed to become compatible with the NSA’s Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) program…making it the preferred mobile communications kit for important decision makers DoD-wide.

The VoyagerECK operating on an approved DISA gateway equips senior decision makers in the federal government with a secure mobile workspace solution that is cost-effective, easy to use, and incredibly flexible. With this enterprise communications suite in place, important members throughout the DoD community, and the secure networks on which they rely, are never out of reach.

  • Half the size of Klas Telecom’s Executive Voice Kit (EVK)

Voyager m-Series Modules

The VoyagerECK is based on Voyager m-Series modules so that it remains compatible with the rest of the Voyager baseband product line. Voyager products are designed to provide scalable network communications from a single user to a headquarters or command post installation using common modules wherever possible. Prior to the introduction of Voyager m-Series modules, this sometimes meant that elements of a solution had more features and port density than required. Voyager m-Series modules allow increased customization of features in baseband packages without a corresponding increase in system size. These smaller modules also enable use of advanced Voyager networking capabilities on deployment platforms where larger Voyager modules are less practical.

Rather than designing a new form factor, Klas Telecom created modules that are half the height of the existing Voyager modules and designed them to slide in and out of the VoyagerECK. When removed from VoyagerECK, the Voyager m-Series modules can be combined for use with other chassis in the Voyager product range, such as Voyager 1, 2, 8 and VoyagerExpress.

Now more than ever, Voyager enables customers to communicate more, and carry less.
