SkyVision Global Networks Ltd. (http://www.skyvision.net), a global communications provider, today announced its strategic partnership with Romantis, a global provider of satellite services and networking equipment, to deliver a quality VSAT platform solution to SkyVision customers worldwide. SkyVision will offer the Romantis UHP (Universal Hardware Platform), a cost-effective VSAT platform, to its customers requiring a uniquely designed solution for small, private VSAT STAR and Mesh networks.
SkyVision’s move to incorporate the Romantis UHP into its product offering stems from the UHP’s broad functionality, scalability and cost of ownership. In serving select SkyVision customers, the software-selectable UHP will support any mode of private network solution, such as hub-centric TDM/TDMA, and hubless TDMA networking in various topologies, including point-to-point, “star”, “mesh” or complex hierarchy. With intelligent QoS (Quality of Service) management and hierarchical traffic shaper, SkyVision customers will benefit from highly-efficient use of satellite bandwidth, and an inexpensive, scalable and flexible VSAT platform with industry-best cost of ownership.
The Romantis UHP is a next-generation, universal VSAT platform with high-processing capability, unique versatility, superior bandwidth utilization efficiency and scalability. Romantis designs and manufactures this innovative UHP product, a fully software-defined router that can be used within networks of any size, either as a hub or a remote.
“We are confident that working closely with a reputable global provider such as SkyVision will combine our companies’ strengths within the enterprise market,” said Dr. Harald W. Stange, Managing Director and CEO, Romantis GmbH. “SkyVision’s small, private VSAT network customers now can have an even more dynamic, cost-effective solution for their dedicated VSAT platform to meet their specific needs, and achieve maximum efficiency on network throughput.”
“After thoroughly evaluating UHP, we found that the Romantis solution was the most suitable, meeting our customers’ requirements for a robust, effective and cost-efficient, small private VSAT network solution.” said Tomer Eisner, SkyVision VP Marketing & Business Development. “Since concluding the agreement with Romantis, we implemented the UHPs solution within several VSAT private networks.”
