O3b Networks Introduces New Satellite Trunking Service Powered by Comtech EF Data
[Via Satellite 03-10-2014] O3b Networks has unveiled the O3bTrunk+, a next generation IP trunking solution that boosts existing link capacities to rival the affordability of latency of fiber. O3bTrunk+ is powered by Comtech EF Data’s technology and is designed to deliver efficient networking and trunking solutions over high throughput satellites.
This new trunking solution is expected to boost link capacity that will open up competitive choices in regions where satellite service offerings have lagged behind connectivity demand for broadband, voice and enterprise services. The O3bTrunk product line delivers lower latencies than long haul fiber, with round-trip latency of less than 150 milliseconds.
“Developing or emerging markets are highly demand elastic with the right combination of price and network performance. O3b has continued to innovate and invest in our ground infrastructure to ensure that beyond the reach of fiber, O3b can offer comparable price and performance certain that this will significantly increase subscriber revenues” said John Finney, CCO of O3b Networks.
