MVS USA Completes First Phase of Global Network Upgrade
MVS USA announced the completion of the first phase of a global upgrade to its mobile satellite network, giving partners and customers added capacity as well as new network management, personalization and virtualization capabilities. With the overhaul of the Amsterdam Point-of-Presence (POP) complete, MVS will continue with the second phase of the project, which includes upgrading the POP in New York.
According to MVS, the enhanced network offers general improvements in network performance, increased security features, and the flexibility for users to design and offer new, personalized value-added services that can work seamlessly alongside terrestrial networks. MVS can now build virtual networks for customers and help them flag and address security issues with greater speed, according to the company.
The global network upgrade effort began in August of 2016. The New York phase, to be completed later this year, will offer an extra layer of redundancy and additional capacity as well.
