New Agreement supports migration from SkyPipe™ to XipOS Optimization

March 29, 2015

Montréal, QC – XipLink, the technology leader in wireless link optimization, announced that SES Government Solutions has entered into an agreement to deliver advanced acceleration and optimization technology to the U.S. Government. This relationship is critical for existing SkyPipe™ users who will move from the legacy SkyPipe™ environment to the new XipOS system. XipOS provides Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) Acceleration using the Space Communications Protocol Standard (SCPS), with byte caching for data de-duplication, link balancing-bonding to virtually increase link capacities with high availability, and more bandwidth to support a new generation of High Throughput Satellites (HTS).

The agreement has several benefits for SES Government Solutions and their customers. XipOS is the most advanced product available for maximizing capacities from small handhelds to HTS. It also provides a faster user experience with new Fast Start and Byte Caching capabilities. The XipOS product has been tested and is ideally suited to complement Type 1, Suite B and other encryption methods.

“XipLink gives us the flexibility we need to deploy acceleration and optimization technology to the U.S. Government. Their optimization appliances are an ideal fit for the SES Government Solutions strategy to provide mission critical capacity to our Government customers at a lower cost per bit,” said Pete Hoene, President and CEO of SES Government Solutions. “We have been working with XipLink as an organization for many years and are thrilled to formalize this relationship.”

“XipLink provides scalable and fully interoperable solutions across a wide product line including appliances, virtual machine deployments and single board computer integrations. By teaming with SES Government Solutions, we can offer the government a market-leading TCP accelerator as well as next-generation Wireless Link Optimization capabilities for Web, UDP and TCP traffic”, reported XipLink CEO Jack Waters. “We have a wonderful long-term relationship with the SES Government Solutions team and look forward to providing a positive impact to their solutions.”
