Comtech EF Data, Vados Systems Announce Cooperation On Integrated Satcom Offering
[Satellite Today – 6-17-08] Comtech EF Data Corp. announced June 17 a strategic co-operation agreement with Vados Systems, a provider of converged integrated solutions to the mobility market. The agreement encompasses the integration of Comtech EF Data’s Vipersat Management System (VMS) product with Vados Systems’ vadEDGE product range.
Comtech EF Data’s VMS enables network administrators and satellite service providers to easily configure their networks and respond to anomalies. VMS automates the carrier switching and spectrum management processes within the satellite network. These capabilities allow SCPC carriers to be switched automatically based on application, load, or schedule, providing on-demand services and space segment savings. When combined with Comtech EF Data’s satellite modem technologies, VMS provides dynamic SCPC capacity management.
The interfaces and protocols of Vados Systems’ end user service offering will be integrated with the Vipersat External Switching Protocol of Comtech EF Data’s VMS. The combined solution provides user-controlled bandwidth on request with automatic assignments for upstream and downstream traffic. This enables bandwidth allocation by application and superior Quality of Service, while maximizing bandwidth and cost efficiencies for users. The combined offering will allow traditional high quality VSAT services to be deployed over an easily manageable IP backbone.
