[SatNews] SES Broadband Services now has a new partnership with German company Meanswhat to deliver satellite communications for multi-national enterprises and Governmental Agencies with branch offices or production facilities in remote areas.
Giving the same performance as at an organization’s headquarters, the solution allows remote offices to connect with legacy ERP systems and on-the-cloud data centers by integrating satellite communication with virtualization techniques based on Citrix® XenApp™ or Citrix® XenDesktop. The SES Broadband Services and Meanswhat solution addresses the stringent bandwidth requirements which many applications have, as well as issues associated with high latency. It delivers high-end Quality of Service, compression, caching, traffic shaping and security mechanisms within one fully integrated platform. SES Broadband Services and Meanswhat will commercialize the service using Newtec’s MDM2200 and MDM3100 IP satellite modems.
“With this partnership we expand our presence to address the convergent requirements of cloud computing, including virtualization, grid computing and service-oriented architectures,” said Patrick Biewer, Managing Director of SES Broadband Services. “This solution is perfect for enterprises which face a constant challenge to allow remote connectivity and business continuity between dispersed offices in Sub-saharan Africa.”
