ION Networks

ION is the most trusted name in remote device management and secure access technology. ION appliances and software enable service providers, equipment manufacturers, government and military agencies, and corporations to remotely manage, monitor, and secure critical voice and data networks.

More than half of the world's top telecommunications firms rely on ION technology to ensure quality service for their customers. With over 60,000 devices deployed worldwide, ION products are currently in use on six continents.

ION Networks, now part of API Technologies Corp., was founded in 1982 as MicroFrame, Inc. and quickly developed a strong reputation for pioneering work in multi-factor authentication and dial-up access control for voice and data networks.

ION has deep roots in the delivery of security and connectivity solutions to the telecommunications industry. This experience, along with the capability to continually anticipate, identify, and adjust to market demands and security requirements has helped ION maintain a leadership position in the technology industry for nearly three decades.

The hallmark of the ION product line is its ability to provide unparalleled security without hindering service delivery. For that reason, ION products are ideal for use by Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and the enterprises that work with them.

ION's suite of products, including secure appliances, secure modems and the software, helps service providers, equipment vendors, and enterprise customers remotely access, manage, and monitor voice, VoIP, and IT systems, while providing an unmatched level of security.

In 2008, the ION™ SA500 Service Access Point was awarded “Innovation of the Year” by the International Nortel Networks Users Association (INNUA).
