TeleCommunications Systems... @ Satellite 2011 With...

[SatNews] Multiple SATCOM technologies will be on display at Satellite 2011 at booth #321.

TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS) invites attendees to stop by their booth to learn about the Company's exclusive arrangement with Cisco to commercialize IT communication services on the world's first space router as well as several of the company's widely implemented deployable satellite communications solutions. Technologies showcased in the booth include:
  • Internet Routing in Space (IRIS): Executives from TCS as well as Cisco will be on hand to talk about the Internet Routing in Space (IRIS) solution. Last month the two organizations entered into an arrangement in which TCS was selected as the exclusive operator of the IRIS solution using the Cisco® 18400 Space Router on Intelsat IS-14, the most advanced commercial satellite platform available today. This industry-first solution enables the convergence of satellite communications and existing information technology infrastructure. By utilizing the benefits of secure Layer 3 Internet Protocol (IP) routing on board the spacecraft, end-to-end IP Virtual Private Network services can be offered directly from space with new levels of flexibility and network control
  • 2.0 M SNAP VSAT with embedded network package: Attendees looking for a satellite solution that can be deployed and set up in under 30 minutes will be interested in the SwiftLink® SNAP 2.0M terminal, a pack-in-the-box Ku VSAT solution. Field-upgradeable to Ka or X-band with a swap of the feed boom assembly, it is designed for rapid deployment, ease of use, and suitability for harsh operating environments
  • SwiftLink® Tactical Transportable TROPO (3T) system: The TCS SwiftLink 3T system delivers long-haul communications where there is an absence of bandwidth and over-the-horizon communications where line-of-sight (LOS) is obstructed. On display at Satellite 2011, attendees can obtain information on this product which is a part of the TCS Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) flyaway family
  • Hyperlite Microsat: TCS is dedicated to providing the most innovative solutions that enable secure, deployable communications for today's Warfighter. The HyperLite Microsat enhances the TCS VSAT product family with the smallest, lightest manportable satellite communications terminal available, designed for easy use, rapid deployment, and maximum portability on the battlefield at only 27.5 lbs with all data/power cables, AC/DC power supplies, and tri-pod

TCS offers deployable communications solutions and complete end-to-end managed services for converged (IP-based) voice, video and data solutions to organizations requiring seamless, highly secure connectivity between fixed sites and remote operations.
