Fitelnet specialises in EMP/HPM protection and designing, planning, and building radio and telecommunication networks, product development, and electrical assembly.
The voltage surges that result from the electromagnetic pulses (EMP) generated by intentional electromagnetic interference, a high-altitude nuclear detonation, or high-power microwave (HPM) weapons can easily damage or destroy all unprotected electronic equipment or components in their path – which is why the systems used by defence forces and official agencies need to be protected.
|Fitelnet’s EMP/HPM-protected system cabinets – like this one designed as part of the DCN initiative – provide excellent attenuation up to 18 GHz.
Fitelnet’s system cabinets have been designed to provide this protection. The company’s EMP/HPM-protected cabinets feature stainless steel for strength, durability, and light weight; and have been tested for excellent attenuation up to 18 GHz. Interfaces and connectors, such as 2M transmission connectors, are EMP-protected and supplied to customer specifications. Optical interfaces can be used when higher rates are required. Interfaces are protected with Fitelnet’s advanced FAPS-8 filter, the most effective unit of its type on the market.
Securing your Ethernet connection
As many of the local area network (LAN) connections widely used for transferring critical data are copper-wire based, they used to be a problem from an EMP/HPM protection standpoint. Fitelnet has now eliminated this issue with the release of its unique FAPS-100 filter.
Designed for 10/100BaseT interfaces in EMP/HPM-secure cabinets and rooms, the Fitelnet FAPS-100 filter can protect Ethernet connections running at up to 100 Mbit/s, providing truly effective protection for highspeed data transfer in crisis situations.
A Fitelnet cabinet – used as part of a fixed system or integrated into vehicles and/or containers – can provide EMP/MPM protection for a variety of equipment, enabling platforms to operate in a wide range of environments. Each solution is closely tailored to customers’ specific requirements. A modular, rack-based solution is offered for TETRA base stations.
Fitelnet also supplies system shelters and trailers for crisis management operations, providing all the features required by military and official organisations when operating out in the field while giving access to an EMP/HPM-protected platform wherever needed. Shelters and trailers can include splinter cell protection, generators, air conditioning, humidity control, masts, and other capabilities.
Expert planning and design
|Fitelnet’s new FAPS-100 filter is designed to protect 10/100BaseT interfaces in EMP/HPMsecure cabinets and rooms and can protect connections running at up to 100 Mbit/s.
In addition to its EMP/HPM work, Fitelnet also provides a wide range of telecom planning services, with a primary focus on TETRA technology, but covering other technologies as well.
Fitelnet has provided indoor coverage planning services for a number of demanding sites in the Middle East, for example, incorporating some of the most innovative and advanced solutions anywhere. Other sites to have benefited from Fitelnet’s planning expertise range from shopping malls and power plants to tunnels and towers.
