Vizada - Mobile Satellite Communications for French Government

Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
: 21 September, 2007  (New Product)
The French Ministry of Defense has chosen Vizada (the former France Telecom Mobile Satellite Communications) to provide its mobile satellite communications over the next three years (2008-2010). Vizada provides Inmarsat, Iridium and Thuraya services for use on many different sites worldwide, including dedicated interconnection solutions to meet the MoD's needs in terms of communications quality and security.

In particular, Vizada has put in place an Inmarsat BGAN*-based solution for the French military health department (Service de Santé des Armées). BGAN terminals are deployed in remote bases worldwide, enabling military surgeons performing operations there to transmit images via videoconference to medical staff based on a different site or country. In this way, the surgeons benefit from advice and guidance in real time from specialists for particularly critical or complicated surgical operations.

Two simultaneous IP BGAN links are put in place to make this possible. A 256 kbps streaming connection to perform videoconferencing and relay images from the operating table to the medical staff in France. A background IP connection (up to 492 kbps) to send medical files, analysis reports, X-rays, photos and scans. This link is established with a computer to which are connected a BGAN terminal, medical equipment (scanner, X-ray machine) and a camera.

The BGAN IP traffic is relayed to Vizada's land earth station, and on from there via leased line to the hospital where the medical staff takes part in the surgical operation via videoconference.

Vizada leverages its IP expertise to provide end-to-end interconnection solutions, ensuring high levels of quality and security for confidential and mission-critical information by avoiding the public internet.

In addition, Vizada has developed its own in-house IP-based solutions to help the French MoD optimize a large fleet of satcoms terminals, including traffic management tools, IP filtering and protocol monitoring solutions.
