Accelerated Secure VPN over SatelliteOperators of satellite based corporate networks had always to make a trade-off between functionality and security. However, today more than ever, remote locations require both access to their business critical applications with end-to-end Quality of Service (QoS) and industrial grade security.
For many applications in both the commercial and government sectors, communications without security is simply not an option. Remote users need the ability to deploy sensitive enterprise applications on satellite-based networks, and still be assured of security.
The iDirect family of network accelerators enable deployment of VPN solutions over satellite without loss of neither TCP performance nor support for real-time applications such as VoIP and streaming video. The appliances specifically enhance IP traffic over TDMA satellite networks and are optimized to work with iDirect’s product range, such as the iNFINITY satellite router series.
The accelerator allows to integrate both government approved network encryption equipment and commercial VPN devices. Thus end users have the freedom to choose the VPN equipment which meets their needs. This means users will have access to all the IP applications they require to operate at peak performance, and still be assured of security through the encryption technology of their choice.
iDirect 1100 Network Accelerator
The iDirect 1100 maximizes the performance of encrypted traffic traveling over a satellite link, providing the end user experience comparable to traditional land-line networks. Real-time applications, like voice and video, can be given network priority insuring application performance regardless of encryption method.
The iDirect 1100 Network Accelerator is a stand alone accelerator deployed at remote locations of satellite networks, providing application prioritization and TCP acceleration. An easy to use GUI configured network component, the iDirect 1100 significantly increases data rates over encrypted satellite networks. More importantly, the 1100 maintains the TCP Optimization over satellite that iDirect networks are known for, while simultaneously supporting application prioritization over encrypted links.
