Eutelsat Communications + SBS Net—Enforcement Connection (SATCOM)

[SatNews] Eutelsat Communications SA and Satellite Broadband Service Network Montenegro (SBS Net) have completed a satellite network connecting Montenegro's police headquarters with the country's six border control stations.

The implementation is the first live VPN to use OneAccess's satellite router, which delivers services via Eutelsat's next-generation KA-SAT satellite. The new network delivers transmission speeds of up to 20Mbps download and 6Mbps upload and will enable the Police of Montenegro to benefit from the most advanced uses of an ultra-fast broadband VPN, including the rapid implementation of integrated backup and traffic offload solutions in highly secure environments.

"The ability to exchange information quickly and securely between Montenegro's Police HQ and its six border control stations will enhance its operations considerably," said Ljiljana Vukovic, Manager of SBS Net. "This project provides the Police of Montenegro the means to control the country's borders via a highly secure network. The results of extensive testing demonstrated that the OneAccess solution significantly improved the network's user experience and bandwidth capability, while maintaining an absolutely secure environment. We are confident that the benefits of this one-box solution will be recognized by other business clients."

In March, Eutelsat and OneAccess introduced an innovative satellite router solution using next generation KA-SAT capabilities to deliver DSL-like satellite VPN services at DSL-like prices to the enterprise market. The solution enables the delivery of a variety of traffic acceleration, IP routing and IP-VPN secure transport services and has been specifically designed to meet the needs of organizations that require centralized control over geographically dispersed offices, like Montenegro's police HQ and border control stations.

Jean-Francois Fenech, General Manager of Eutelsat Broadband, said: "Montenegro Police's decision to choose a KA-SAT delivered service for vital communications further underlines the capability and reliability of next generation satellite technology. Our KA-SAT services are leading the market for satellite broadband, while our partnerships with OneAccess and SBS Net enable us to deliver this capability to businesses and other large organizations."
