TS2 Rolls Out Satellite Broadband in Afghanistan
[Satellite TODAY 01-17-12] TS2 Satellite Technologies has introduced new broadband satellite services to Afghanistan, offering two-way high-speed Internet access that do not require phone lines, cable or dial-up modems, the company announced Jan. 16.
TS2 said its satellite system was designed to meet broadband requirements such as Internet and VPN access to enterprise networks, as well as real-time VoIP and video conferencing.
“The Internet connection can be shared with other users via wireless or wired network. Most soldiers deploy with a laptop in hand and a hookup to the Internet in their barracks. This is especially important for the many who are married, and have young children. The Internet access has resulted in major morale improvements. Troops no longer feel cut off from home,” TS2 said in a company statement.
