The Sectera Edge was developed under the NSA Secure Mobile
Environment/Portable Electronic Device program (SME PED) and will
eventually be supplied to the DOD and Homeland Security. It will be
able to switch between the government's Secret Internet Protocol Router
Network (SIPRNet) and Non-classified Internet Protocol Router Network
(NIPRNet). I'll bet you think I'm making those up, don't you?
The National Security Agency has authorized military and government personnel to order up a bunch of General Dynamics'
Sectera Edge secure, wireless smartphones, which will not only allow
them to make secure calls but also to email and Web-browse in either
classified or unclassified mode. The phones will still operate right
along with everyone else on the existing high-speed Global System for
Mobile Communications, Code Division Multiple Access and Wi-Fi
commercial cellular networks.
For those who are concerned or curious, yes, it does use Windows Mobile. No, we are not sure if that is a plus or a minus.
