Klas Telecom Launches Government Network Service Device for Inmarsat GX
[Via Satellite 12-02-2016] Klas Telecom has launched its Government Network Service Device (NSD), a software-defined tactical networking solution for use with Inmarsat’s new Global Xpress (GX) satellite network services. The Government NSD combines Klas Telecom’s Atlas virtualization platform allied with a 5th Gen Intel Dual-Core virtual machine server that enables Cisco 5921 routing and VDS-IS content distribution in an easy-to-use, 2-pound, ruggedized module.
The Government NSD provides a smart interconnection between proprietary military networks and the worldwide, high speed GX family of satellites. In addition to GX, the Government NSD also terminates BGAN services for L-band links and enables Inmarsat Over-The-Top (OTT) services like GX Voice, managed browsing services, content delivery and applications.
The Government NSD solution comprises Klas Telecom Voyager m-series network modules, namely the VoyagerVMm. Additional routing and switching modules can be added to the solution for red/black operations, and the modules can be integrated into a number of Klas Telecom Voyager chassis. Radio, cellular, and Wi-Fi transport options are also available through the Government NSD and the Atlas open architecture platform makes it easier for users to manage and integrate their own applications and services.
