Information Processing System (IPS) Containers

IPS (Information Processing System) containers are GSA approved security containers constructed specifically for the protection of classified communications equipment.  IPS containers are modified class 5 containers that are designed for closed-door, unmanned on-line operation of computers, network servers, workstations, and encryption equipment that process classified information.  They come in several sizes and door style design.  IPS containers feature the following provisions; they include rack-mounting assemblies, universal cable exit assemblies, power supplies, and cooling systems.  They are built to Federal Specification AA-C-2786A, and come equipped with a lock meeting Federal Specification FF-L-2740B.  Please review the Federal Qualified Products List QPL-AA-C-2786-5 to see which manufacturers' products meet federal specifications for IPS containers.  For technical specification questions about GSA-approved security containers call GSA at (817) 850-5556 for assistance.

If you have a special size IPS container configuration requirement that GSA Global Supply does not offer, you may order an IPS container directly from the manufacturer.  Click on the Ordering Info tab for more information.
