EMC Satcom Technologies Announces Release 16 for the SatLink Platform

Enables Flexibility, Efficiency, Simplicity and Choice in Networking Technologies

OLSO, NORWAY -- (Marketwired) -- 03/09/14 -- EMC Satcom Technologies, a division of Emerging Markets Communications, announced today at Satellite 2014, the availability of Software Release 16 for SatLink®, the technology-leading VSAT networking product line. SatLink now provides the simplicity and spectrum efficiency of MCPC/SCPC networks, as used for large high-capacity, dedicated trunks, combined with the exceptional dynamic flexibility and the outstanding multiplexing efficiency of its TDM/TDMA capabilities. The technology enables large network operators and end-user organizations the ability to choose the network structure best-suited for any given customer or part of their satellite communication infrastructure.

The SatLink system, a full-featured product line with a wide range of Hub and VSAT products, now serves both TDMA and SCPC needs concurrently. The SatLink Network Management System (NMS) implements tools to assure Committed Information Rates (CIRs) and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for a diversity of end-user applications and operating environments, including fixed and mobile VSATs, all sharing the same Hub and carriers dynamically, in either mode.

"Our solution, based on SatLink and EMC's many patents, are far beyond what the other suppliers are contemplating today," said Richard Forberg, VP of Product Management and Marketing. "We lower the total cost of ownership while doubling network capacity and driving network reliability much higher, whether for high-value commercial or government networks, with fixed or mobile VSATs, or mass-market consumer broadband."

Large network operators now are able to serve mission critical government and corporate networks with multiple VPNs secured by AES-256 encryption and independent IP addressing, on the same core infrastructure with residential broadband for public Internet access, all without compromises. Each type of customer organization can be managed and secured separately with their own encryption keys, guaranteed capacities, QoS policies, etc. Their own Virtual Satellite Network (VSN) can be independently managed either by the customer's staff directly or by the network owner-operator.

"Many of the enhancements available in Release 16 were developed as a result of our long-standing relationship with the European Space Agency (ESA)," said Bjorn Platou, Senior VP of EMC Satcom Technologies. "The agency is very supportive of the advancement in technology for the DVB-S2 and DVB-RCS2 open international standards."

SatLink networks, deliver a lower total cost per MHz by using statistical multiplexing even when traffic load fluctuations per site are moderate. Furthermore, by combining SatLink with EMC's dual-patented NRS (Noise Reduction System), bandwidth cancellation allows all TDMA carriers to use the same spectrum as the TDM carriers. SatLink, a product set in EMC's global satellite service offering, is a widely adopted technology used in many verticals worldwide.
