Raleigh, NC, Paris, 6 December 2016 – Microspace Communications, a pioneer in innovative broadband solutions for established and emerging enterprise applications, has selected the SmartLNB service platform of Eutelsat Communications (NYSE Euronext Paris: ETL) to implement its new two-way satellite service called VELOCITY DataBridge. VELOCITY DataBridge is a next-generation satellite service that sets a new standard for cost, performance, and convenience. Through inexpensive hardware and low monthly operational costs, it is ideally suited for customers seeking machine to machine (M2M), SCADA, and IoT solutions in sectors including oil & gas, digital signage, security, and corporate networks.
The VELOCITY DataBridge service uses 76 cm satellite antennas and an integrated IP modem/router to offer connectivity no matter when or where it is needed. Using capacity on the powerful EUTELSAT 117 West A satellite, the service offers strong performance in the continental USA, Mexico and Central America. This extensive geographic reach is coupled with Eutelsat’s SmartLNB platform that provides an innovative and cost-effective solution for low bitrate applications for M2M and connecting services.
