Eutelsat and OneAccess launch innovative technology for advanced enterprise
services on KA-SAT satellite 
New generation of performance-enhanced satellite-based VPN services immediately
available across entire KA-SAT coverage in Europe, the Middle East and North
Africa 
Paris, 12 March 2013 - Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) and
One Access, the leading manufacturer of multi-service routers and Carrier
Ethernet access devices, have joined forces to develop the first
performance-enhanced platform for businesses designed to deliver services
operated on Eutelsat's KA-SAT High Throughput Satellite in a secure VPN
environment. Set to launch in March 2013, and immediately available across
KA-SAT's entire footprint, the new service makes satellite communications even
more affordable for businesses by delivering DSL-like service at DSL-like
prices. 
Since 2011, Eutelsat's KA-SAT has been steadily transforming the market for
satellite-based broadband services for consumers and enterprises in Europe,
North Africa and the Middle East. To enhance and extend the scope of enterprise
services, One Access has worked in collaboration with Eutelsat to develop a
dedicated One1520 satellite router that incorporates integrated traffic
acceleration, IP routing and IP-VPN secure transport to deliver 20Mbps download
and 6Mbps upload. This One1520 single embedded box solution dramatically
decreases the total cost of ownership for both users and operators. The
resulting new business services based on this innovative platform are ideal for
delivering Internet access to businesses with dispersed networks of offices
where maintaining a high-speed, secure, inter-branch communications network is
critical. The most advanced uses of ultrafast broadband private networks are now
possible, enabling new possibilities, in particular fast implementation of
integrated backup or traffic offload solutions in highly secure environments. 
Speaking about the partnership, Jean-François Fenech, General Manager of
Eutelsat's Broadband Business Unit, said, "Through our cutting edge KA-SAT
technology, we have demonstrated our ability to provide broadband access to
businesses with unmatched quality and capacity across the extended service area
of our KA-SAT multibeam satellite. The partnership between Eutelsat and
OneAccess takes our professional services to the next level, enabling us to
deliver a truly next-generation VPN solution for enterprises using our KA-SAT
satellite technology combined with OneAccess innovative router technology." 
Bertrand Meis, CEO at OneAccess added, "This partnership is unique and a major
development for the communications services sector. Our custom-engineered
dual-core routers, incorporating specialized WAN optimisation and
standards-based security software, enable reduced latency and dynamic traffic
optimization. The One1 520 is a fully integrated solution that delivers
accessibility, transparency and performance. When combined with the power of
KA-SAT, the result is a one-box solution for business and a high quality secure
service which is a genuine fully-fledged complement to any business DSL service
in operation today."
