Klas Telecom launches network service device for Inmarsat Global Xpress

Klas Telecom has launched the Government Network Service Device (NSD), for use with Inmarsat´s new Global Xpress (GX) satellite network services, the company said.

The Government NSD combines Klas Telecom´s ATLAS virtualization platform allied with a 5th Gen Intel Dual-Core virtual machine server that enables Cisco 5921 routing and VDS-IS content distribution in an easy-to-use, two-pound, ruggedized module. The Government NSD provides a smart interconnection between proprietary military networks and the worldwide, high speed GX family of satellites. In addition to GX, the Government NSD also terminates BGAN services for L-band links and enables Inmarsat Over-The-Top (OTT) services like GX Voice, managed browsing services, content delivery and applications.
