Protonyx delivers comBOX satellite link bonding over Eutelsat’s
KA-SAT satellite
Businesses can incrementally increase bandwidth by aggregating multiple satellite links
Greece, 2nd November 2015 – Protonyx Data Services is partnering with Eutelsat
Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) to offer its comBOX Satellite Link Bonding solution
over the KA-SAT satellite to offer businesses the opportunity to incrementally add bandwidth
to their Wide Area Networks (WAN) by aggregating multiple satellite links together. The
solution means organisations operating in remote areas across Europe can use high-speed,
secure and reliable internet services for business wherever they are located.
comBOX Satellite Link Bonding, is ideal for:
Small to medium companies located in remote areas that access the Internet via
satellite broadband connections and need constant access to Cloud Services for
their daily operations.
Companies with centrally located headquarters and a number of branch offices
located outside urban areas that need security and reliability of data communication
between their remote offices and the headquarters.
Companies that require Quality of Service (QoS) and Traffic Shaping for guaranteed
bandwidth to critical services or applications.
Aggregated satellite bandwidth
Businesses using the new solution can take existing single internet connections from
Eutelsat Broadband, which deliver download speeds of up to 22Mbps and upload speeds of
up to 6Mbps over the KA-SAT satellite, and bond them together to provide a stable and
secure increased bandwidth service. For example, by aggregating the bandwidth of four
Eutelsat’s satellite links the total speed would reach 88 Mbps for download traffic and 24
Mbps for upload traffic.
The Protonyx comBOX satellite link bonding technology uses a special algorithm to
effectively aggregate the available bandwidth and create a virtual Internet connection with
speeds equal to the sum of the individual connections used. The aggregated bandwidth is
available even for a single session (e.g. transfer of a single file), as the data is sent
simultaneously utilising all the available satellite links. The algorithm is self-tuning and
adaptive to changes in the bandwidth and quality of the individual satellite links.
Designed for business
The solution has been designed to offer businesses the flexibility, security and certainty they
need, with real time Data Compression, Performance Enhancing Proxy (PEP), TCP tuning
and Packet Order Correction (POC), as well as various Quality of Service (QoS) and Priority
adjustments. These features help compress the data transmitted over the satellite to keep
costs down, ensure data is transmitted at optimum speeds, bandwidth is managed
automatically for data intensive applications and service is maintained even during network
Antonios Chaidemenos, Managing Director at Protonyx Data Services, said, “The
combination of our comBOX satellite bonding solution and Eutelsat Broadband’s KA-SAT
satellite coverage across Europe enables businesses to take advantage of high-speed,
stable and secure broadband services from any location, however rural or isolated.”
Olivier Anstett, General Manager at Eutelsat Broadband, said: “This partnership provides
organisations using our satellite broadband services with new levels of speed, capability and
flexibility unseen before. The comBOX Satellite Bonding solution will provide businesses in
hard to reach communication areas with the tools to compete on a level playing field.”
