Network Gateway, Front End Applications,
and WAN-Express

softFEP Network Gateway and
Front End Applications

softFEP Apps are deployed virtually on cloud architectures or hosted on dedicated servers. The Apps perform control center data formatting and interface conversion for commands and telemetry, with full support for NSA Type 1 and AES encryption/decryption devices.
