Vizada successfully completes testing of the Inmarsat BGAN X-Stream

Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
: 14 May, 2009  (Company News)
Vizada has successfully completed testing of the Inmarsat BGAN X-Stream service with a number of media customers, including CNN and Al-Arabiya News Channel. The service is now commercially available through Vizada.
Both Vizada media customers are existing users of the Inmarsat BGAN service, a mobile satellite device that enables reporters to perform live broadcasting anywhere in the world. With X-Stream, customers now benefit from a guaranteed streaming service with increased data rates of up to 450 kbps, minimum of 384 kbps.

The test phase was coordinated closely with Vizada’s Service Provider partners Digital Skies and Atlas Telecom. BGAN X-Stream also caters for government and military customers requiring increased data connection speeds for live videoconferencing and other bandwidth-hungry applications, particularly for media and government customers.

“The increased data throughput provided a significantly clearer image during live broadcasting and our customers are very satisfied with the results,” said Eric Verheylewegen, Vice President Commercial Sales, Vizada Americas. “With BGAN X-Stream it is possible to film both the reporter and his or her surroundings, even if there is motion in the background. Lower bandwidth solutions just don’t enable this.”

Vizada provides media customers with a package comprising the BGAN X-Stream service, combined with Vizada Solutions to meet the video transmission, voice calling, end-to-end traffic termination and cost control requirements of users operating remotely.

For example, Vizada’s free web-based management system The Source enables service providers to track and manage end-user accounts. This includes setting limits and alerts on usage for full control of communications costs.

Vizada also provides Terralink Interconnect, a range of terrestrial interconnection solutions, including dedicated leased lines for customers requiring a high-performance data connection and considerable bandwidth directly to the customer’s headquarters. Vizada’s Terralink IP Addressing enables allocation of fixed IP addresses to BGAN terminals, necessary for videoconferencing and ensuring high levels of security.

BGAN X-Stream is commercially available today through Vizada. It uses the Inmarsat-4 EMEA satellite making the service accessible for users located in Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia, and globally from the end of June 2009. It is accessible from all BGAN Class 1 terminals from HNS and Thrane & Thrane, with no additional hardware costs required.
