U.S. Department of Homeland Security to deploy Telkonet iWire system in U.S. airports

GERMANTOWN, Md., 27 Dec. 2006. The Department of Homeland Security's Transportation Security Administration (TSA), in collaboration with the U.S. Army Information Systems Engineering Command Technology Integration Center, has completed evaluation of the powerline networking platform of Telkonet Inc., a provider of powerline carrier (PLC) networking solutions using existing electrical wiring.

The Telkonet iWire System, which was approved for use, is scheduled for deployment within multiple Category II-IV airports starting in January 2007.

Telkonet's enterprise IP-over-powerline system will be used to enable the deployment of secure, high-speed network connectivity and other security applications to TSA-owned and operated workspaces within these airports.

Telkonet will be deploying its systems to help the TSA enhance communications between TSA field personnel and headquarters, support passenger and baggage screening personnel training and education in the field, and provide a scalable network infrastructure for the introduction of other homeland security applications, as needed. These pilots, which Telkonet will begin installing in January, are the first part of a roll-out to potentially 380-plus airport deployments nationwide for which the TSA is planning to spend approximately $100 million as part of the multi-year High-Speed Operational Connectivity (Hi-SOC) program.
