PARIS, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

     New generation of performance-enhanced satellite-based VPN services
immediately available across entire KA-SAT coverage in Europe, the Middle East
                               and North Africa

Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) and OneAccess, 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, OneAccess 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 One1520 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 full-fledged complement to any business DSL
service in operation today."
