Universal Secure Phone for VoIP and Analog Networks - Now Direct Connect Fiber Capable!

The Sectéra® vIPer™ Universal Secure Phone allows you to easily switch between making end-to-end secure and non-secure calls on Voice over IP (VoIP) and analog networks, eliminating the need for multiple desktop phones. The vIPer is the only VoIP phone certified to protect information classified Top Secret/SCI and below over commercial wired networks. In addition, the vIPer supports multiple key-sets for U.S. government sponsored interoperability (e.g., NATO & coalition).

The new vIPer phone now includes an embedded fiber interface. This enables customers to take advantage of the benefits of modern fiber infrastructures such as greater speed, distance, reliability, security and cost savings.
