BusinessCom has launched a dedicated bandwidth VSAT solution covering the MENA region based on Ku-band IO satellites.
NEW Advantage IP VSAT service
Advantage IP VSAT provides coverage to more than 18 countries in the Middle East and parts of CIS and Asia, including Iraq and Afghanistan. With the new SLA-enabled service primarily designed to provide IP backbone connectivity for Internet Service Providers and Enterprise customers, BusinessCom has introduced satellite Internet access to these regions at unprecedented pricing.
The new BusinessCom® Advantage IP VSAT service is based on the DVB-S2 standard, with ACM (Adaptive Coding and Modulation) delivering up to 52 Mbps IP throughput per terminal, with the ability to bond multiple terminals together. Whenever high order modulation can be used, the throughput can be further increased up to 133 Mbps per terminal. The Advantage IP VSAT service is available in both bi-directional receive and transmit and receive-only configurations, seamlessly integrating with existing terrestrial IP uplinks.
The Advantage IP VSAT customer premise equipment (CPE) kit features an easy-to-install motorized antenna, with a relatively small footprint compared to traditional IO satellite tracking hardware. The system automatically aligns and stays aligned to the target satellite, without the need to deploy, and possibly redeploy, a licensed installer. The CPE is designed to provide single button satellite acquisition and automatic reacquisition in the harshest of environments, minimizing initial deployment and recurring maintenance expenditures.
The Advantage IP VSAT CPE also includes a high performance Layer 7 Firewall appliance that provides QoS, Network Intrusion Detection System, Remote Administration, caching and on the fly traffic compression capabilities. This significantly increases satellite bandwidth efficiency compared to traditional VSAT systems. By leveraging the IP bandwidth optimization and IO satellite pricing, the Advantage IP VSAT is a very high performance, dedicated satellite Internet access solution.
Innovative equipment approach
The Advantage IP VSAT customer premise equipment (CPE) is based on a tri-axial predictive tracking design that makes the motorized antenna easy to install and maintain. The solution supports IP throughputs up to 133 Mbps Rx and 20 Mbps Tx per terminal, with the ability to bond multiple terminals together to achieve even higher broadband rates.
BusinessCom provides redundant peering to 1st Tier European backbones via STM-1 and multiple Gigabit Ethernet connections.
