Around the world, governments are looking for ways to seize the opportunities presented by ubiquitous information flow. Those that can effectively share information across agencies can improve their nation’s security and quality of life.
At the same time, they need to recognize and deal with significant challenges and risks. First and foremost, they need to make sure sensitive information is shared with the people and agencies that need it in a timely manner without compromising its secrecy. They also need to balance the benefits of collecting and sharing of information with their citizens’ right to privacy and free speech.
Solace’s innovative high-performance messaging hardware is uniquely capable of handling the data volumes associated with government applications, and features the low complexity and TCO of being a purpose-built appliance.
- Inter-agency communications: Solace’s appliances enable the distribution of information routed by content and location, which is critical in situations where first responders, government agencies and supporting non-governmental organizations need to stay on top of potential threats and developing situations.
- Sensor reading distribution: Solace’s appliances can support the collection, routing and distribution of data coming in from the highly distributed sensor networks common to government applications. Sample use cases include networks of sensors dedicated to monitoring weather conditions, tracking pressure/temperature readings from remote equipment, and watching for the presence of chemical or radioactive signatures that indicate the presence of weapons of mass destruction.
