Isode server and management tool products are extensively utilized in a number of specific vertical markets. In many cases Isode products are delivered via our worldwide network of partners.
Key vertical markets include:
- Aviation Directory
- Aviation Messaging
- Government Directory
- ISP Messaging
- ISP Mobile Gateway
- Military Directory (ACP 133)
- Military Messaging (STANAG 4406)
- Applications for Military Radio & Satellite
The ATN (Air Traffic Network) Directory is defined by ICAO (International Civil Aviation Authority) as a part of the overall ATN specifications. A major goal of the ATN Directory is to support aviation messaging solution. Isode uses directory services as a core part of its aviation messaging solution, and to enable the Extended ATS Message Service, that requires support of the ATN Directory.
Isode provides all of the servers and management tools needed to build and operate an ATN Directory.
The aviation industry is adopting AMHS (Air Traffic Services (ATS) Message Handling Services) to support ground to ground communications for services such as flight plans, NOTAM (Notice to Airman) and Meteorological information. AMHS systems will eventually replace legacy AFTN (Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunication Network) and CIDIN (Common ICAO Data Interchange Network) based systems.
Isode provides the servers needed to build an AMHS Infrastructure.
Government departments typically have a fair degree of autonomy in selecting the IT systems they use but there is often a centrally imposed requirement for systems to work together. This requirement to operate independently and to work together has a key influence on the requirements governing directory system selection.
Isode's M-Vault (LDAP/X.500) directory server is a popular choice for Government directory deployments.
Isode provides all of the servers and management components needed to construct a complete Internet Messaging system.
The Isode solution combines SMTP message switch with anti-spam, POP/IMAP mail delivery, XMPP Instant Messaging, LDAP directory for account provisioning and authorisation and GUI & browser-based management tools.
IMAP is the best protocol for email access from mobile devices. IMAP provides efficient use of network resources, quick scanning of new messages, the ability to download message parts independent of the entire message and shared folder access.
The Isode mobile email gateway for mobile operators and email service providers is a quick to install, easy to administer gateway server giving IMAP access to POP email accounts.
Directory services are a critical military component, used for tactical and strategic systems. Military directories, specified by ACP 133, are used to provide information services, support of military messaging, and as supporting infrastructure for other applications such as PKI (Public Key Infrastructure).
Isode provides all of the servers and management tools needed to build and securely administer a military directory.
STANAG 4406 is the NATO standard for Military Messaging based on X.400. STANAG 4406 Military Messaging is used for Formal Military Messaging, and defines a number of functional and security features to support formal military messaging. It is often used for informal Military Messaging, particularly for High Grade messaging, where features of X.400 to support high reliability are of particular importance. STANAG 4406 has a number of special protocols to support tactical messaging, in particular to support very low bandwidth links such as HF radio (STANAG 4406 Annex E) and to support receivers in EMCON ("Emission Control") mode who can receive but not send data.
Many Isode applications are optimized for use over Radio, Satellite and other multicast and potentially low quality/performance links. Although this functionality may have general application, Military organizations are the primary target of these applications, and a number of protocols specified for military use are key to Isode's product set.
Isode provides software applications that are optimized for radio and satellite networks.
