All Set to Optimize SD-WAN Over Satellite are FatPipe Networks and Lepton Global Solutions

FatPipe® Networks now has a collaboration with Lepton Global Solutions to optimize SD-WAN over satellite for VSAT customers.

Lepton recently launched Lepton BOOST™, a secure SD-WAN solution designed to optimize satellite connection link traffic, powered by FatPipe Networks. BOOST is designed to facilitate the secure and timely delivery of data to customer locations from VSAT-based endpoints. Integrated into the company’s ground infrastructure, Lepton’s BOOST virtual network utilizes five “engines” to provide WAN optimization: Security, Efficiency, Quality of Service (QoS), Congestion Control and Virtualized Routing. BOOST provides WAN network management specifically designed to address the high-latency, low-bandwidth environment of satellite networking with features including Caching, Compression, Acceleration, VPN IPSEC and Global Single IP Addressing.
Rob Weitendorf, Managing Partner at Lepton Global Solutions, reported that selecting FatPipe Networks to help the company bring SD-WAN to the firm's satellite customers allowed Lepton to incorporate unique satellite network infrastructure capabilities required to successfully deliver SD-WAN to satellite customers that’s secure, flexible and cost-effective.
Sanch Datta, CTO, FatPipe Networks, added that Lepton’s FatPipe-powered BOOST SD-WAN solution has the potential to transform satellite connections by introducing the enormous benefits of virtualizing and overlaying various satellite network links. Lepton BOOST customers can now rely on secure and cost-effective routing of data and applications between headquarters and remote locations without concern for network performance or data breaches.
