PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA -May 15, 2018 – Black Box, announced today the release of Acuity™ Micro Data Center. As a premier systems integrator and technology products innovator, Black Box has been solving mission critical information availability problems for both the public and private sectors for over four decades and is a trusted solution provider for information and communication systems convergence for the Department of Defense (DoD) and federal agencies.

As a technology exchange partner with the DoD and other Federal agencies, Black Box continues to drive innovation which enables us to do more with less equipment, manpower, and time. From more than four decades experience of successfully fielding mission critical infrastructure and solutions we are now able to streamline tactical edge deployments while expanding application capabilities and resiliency.

Black Box Acuity combines best-in-class technology with mobility and efficiency to ensure readiness in a single form factor portable enough to fit into a commercial airline overhead storage compartment. Acuity delivers mission-critical capabilities such as data security, ease-of-use, and superior voice, video, and messaging functionality in a weight of only 30 lbs. The ruggedized, agile solution is designed for mobility and security with removable cards (just pull and go) to maintain integrity in emergency situations and in a variety of terrains. 

“The design of the Acuity edge solution ensures complete agility within the system,” states Ken Kincel, Product Director of Edge Data Solutions at Black Box. “Acuity not only provides speed and efficiency but delivers substantial cost savings compared to current systems where it can take days or weeks to get emergency data center services up and running.”

With Acuity, one person can set up and deliver critical communications, applications, and information anywhere in the world in about two hours. In the case of a natural disaster, act of terrorism, or harsh operating environments, this increased efficiency can be lifesaving.

Equipped with a full data center suite, Acuity enables Unified Capabilities (voice, video, chat, and presence), identity management, session migration, load balancing and failover, secure vector routing, micro/hyper-segmentation, virtual network function (VNF), replacement for multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) and VPN, centralized management (automation and orchestration), open standard/architecture, secured voice gateway, Windows active directory services, Exchange 2016 and Outlook, and private and public cloud services.

“The Acuity Micro Data Center can be outfitted and customized for a myriad of applications and operating systems,” says Jeff Murray, Senior Vice President - Government Solutions. “The core system is equipped and configured to offer complete voice and data communications in a DIL environment with access to applications as predefined by the mission leaders for each environment.  Acuity is not like any other product on the market as it delivers a Capability out of the gate.”

Acuity delivers the best solution for virtualization, security, bandwidth, communications, and flexibility. 

All equipment meets unified capabilities requirements (UCR2013) and is MIL-STD_810G certified. Units can be networked for scalability to support more than 50 users to offer high performance in a small footprint.
