Eutelsat/OneAccess launch innovative technology for advanced enterprise services on KA-SAT satellite
Tuesday, March 12, 2013
New generation of performance-enhanced satellite-based VPN services
immediately available across entire KA-SAT coverage in Europe, the Middle
East and North Africa
Paris, 12 March 2013 - Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) and OneAccess, the
leading manufacturer of multi-service routers and Carrier Ethernet access devices, have joined
forces to develop the first performance-enhanced platform for businesses designed to deliver
services operated on Eutelsat’s KA-SAT High Throughput Satellite in a secure VPN environment.
Set to launch in March 2013, and immediately available across KA-SAT’s entire footprint, the
new service makes satellite communications even more affordable for businesses by delivering
DSL-like service at DSL-like prices.
Since 2011, Eutelsat’s KA-SAT has been steadily transforming the market for satellite-based
broadband services for consumers and enterprises in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
To enhance and extend the scope of enterprise services, OneAccess has worked in collaboration
with Eutelsat to develop a dedicated One1520 satellite router that incorporates integrated traffic
acceleration, IP routing and IP-VPN secure transport to deliver 20Mbps download and 6Mbps
upload. This One1520 single embedded box solution dramatically decreases the total cost of
ownership for both users and operators. The resulting new business services based on this
innovative platform are ideal for delivering Internet access to businesses with dispersed networks
of offices where maintaining a high-speed, secure, inter-branch communications network is
critical. The most advanced uses of ultrafast broadband private networks are now possible,
enabling new possibilities, in particular fast implementation of integrated backup or traffic offload
solutions in highly secure environments.
