Cisco Solves Satellite/VoIP Bandwidth Issues with New Multiplexing Solution
[Satellite TODAY 04-10-12] Cisco is introducing an IP multiplexing technology for its Cisco Mobile Ready Net package that aims to dramatically improve the number of IP-based calls on a satellite link, the company announced April 9.
“This allows you to have more phone calls, but also allows other applications to make use of additional packets per seconds,” Kauffmann said in a statement. “Customers are typically using satellite modems for uplink and downlink measured at 1800 to 2000 packets-per-second. It’s not something that’s efficient for VoIP traffic and using IPSec encryption for security will almost double the size of the traffic.”
