Spacenet raises the standard for satellite networking with a new line of high-performance Connexstar™ services for converged voice, video and data application

Spacenet Inc. has launched the latest generation of its Connexstar line of satellite networking services for business, industrial and government customers. The new Connexstar packages deliver the highest performance of any high-scalability VSAT network standard service available in North America, with up to 50% more bandwidth than comparable services as well as providing the first "Minimum Assured Speed” from an off-the-shelf satellite networking service.

The new Connexstar services are offered in three series:

  • Connexstar Transaction: providing a highly reliable, always-on narrowband satellite link optimized to support high-frequency transaction based traffic from retail point-of-sale applications, SCADA or remote monitoring devices and more.
  • Connexstar Broadband: offering a commercial grade high-speed satellite service, at speeds up to 2Mbps, optimized for corporate data, web based applications, and general broadband data usage.
  • Connexstar Performance: setting a new standard in pre-packaged satellite services offering the highest speeds in the industry at up to 3Mbps and a network optimized exclusively for converged communication environments, simultaneously supporting toll quality digital voice, two-way video conferencing, as well as broadband data and web applications.

Each is optimized to support different application environments, ranging from transaction-based remote monitoring to fully converged voice, video and data solutions. The new generation of Connexstar services delivers leased line-quality communications and exceptional performance utilizing the latest in VSAT satellite technology and are available in fixed or transportable configurations.
