  • IP-Sec: cost-effective and easy-to-install interconnection via IP-Sec encryption technology over the Internet
  • Leased line: dedicated point-to-point terrestrial line with guaranteed bandwidth for high-speed applications
  • MPLS: virtual point-to-point terrestrial link with guaranteed bandwidth for high-quality applications and QoS management

Flightstream™ SA

Our Flightstream SA service is included and provides web filtering, compression, data management and consumption tracking features. Of importance for Special Mission & BLOS operators is our network traffic control features. Traffic control enables filters and rules, including prioritization, for traffic crossing our network and acts on both incoming and outgoing traffic. Predefined filters are available which have a preconfigured set of rules containing combinations of the most common IP protocols and services used for satellite communications. Customization of filters is also available for traffic control and includes all necessary flexibility. Protocols are available for the creation of traffic profiles based on network layer 3 protocols (ICMP), layer 4 protocols (UDP, TCP), or tunneling protocols (ESP, AH, GRE). Traffic prioritization is available to make sure high priority data reaches the Satcom terminal even in situations where 100% of the allocated downstream network bandwidth is being used. Flightstream SA prioritization allows the users to define how the received traffic will be treated and allows the user to qualify the priority class of a given traffic profile and assign a bandwidth percentage to each priority class.
