Eutelsat and SBS Net Connect Montenegro's Police HQ and Border Controls with OneAccess' Game Changing Satellite Router Solution

First-of-a-kind satellite VPN enables ultra-fast, encrypted data transfer between Montenegro's police HQ and border control stations

PARIS, September 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --



Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL) and Satellite Broadband Service Network Montenegro (SBS Net) today announced the completion of an ultra-fast, secure satellite network connecting Montenegro's police headquarters with the country's six border control stations. The implementation is the first live VPN to use OneAccess' game-changing satellite router, which delivers high speed, enterprise-class VPN services via Eutelsat's next-generation KA-SAT satellite.

The new network delivers transmission speeds of up to 20Mbps download and 6Mbps upload and will enable the Police of Montenegro to benefit from the most advanced uses of an ultra-fast broadband VPN, including the rapid implementation of integrated backup and traffic offload solutions in highly secure environments.

"The ability to exchange information quickly and securely between Montenegro's Police HQ and its six border control stations will enhance its operations considerably," said Ljiljana Vukovic, Manager of SBS Net. "This project provides the Police of Montenegro the means to control the country's borders via a highly secure network. The results of extensive testing demonstrated that the OneAccess solution significantly improved the network's user experience and bandwidth capability, while maintaining an absolutely secure environment. We are confident that the benefits of this one-box solution will be recognized by other business clients."

In March, Eutelsat and OneAccess introduced an innovative satellite router solution using next generation KA-SAT capabilities to deliver DSL-like satellite VPN services at DSL-like prices to the enterprise market. The solution enables the delivery of a variety of traffic acceleration, IP routing and IP-VPN secure transport services and has been specifically designed to meet the needs of organisations that require centralised control over geographically dispersed offices, like Montenegro's police HQ and border control stations.

Bertrand Meis, CEO at OneAccess, commented: "Enterprise satellite broadband was once considered by the market to be a costly connectivity solution, principally suitable for hard to reach locations. Our partnership with Eutelsat has given us the opportunity to challenge this perception and open a new sales category for satellite broadband, enabling communication service providers of all kinds to offer compelling next generation satellite services to the business marketplace. This is the first satellite offering to satisfy both the encryption and network optimisation demands required to bring competitive and reliable business-grade satellite connectivity to market. The power of KA-SAT has enabled us to provide innovative and cost-effective products designed to meet the challenging demands not only of distributed companies but also of vital public institutions, such as the Police of Montenegro."

Jean-François Fenech, General Manager of Eutelsat Broadband, said: "Montenegro Police's decision to choose a KA-SAT delivered service for vital communications further underlines the capability and reliability of next generation satellite technology. Our KA-SAT services are leading the market for satellite broadband, while our partnerships with OneAccess and SBS Net enable us to deliver this capability to businesses and other large organisations."
