Expand Launches Best-in-Class Satellite WAN Accelerator in PC-104+ Form Factor

  • 16 October, 2008 10:04

<p><b>SYDNEY, Aust., – October 16, 2008 </b>– Expand Networks, <u></u>, a leading provider of application acceleration solutions over the Wide Area Network (WAN), today announced that it has launched the Expand Accelerator in a PC-104+ form factor. The Accelerator 1610’s unique ability to deliver flexibility and scalability in such a condensed form factor—and to live in a host device without space or power challenges in harsh or space constrained environments— makes it ideal for integration into mobile communications that use the PC104 stack.</p>
<p>“Expand Networks’ WAN Accelerators have dominated the satellite space due to their superior flexibility, performance, management and security features,” said Efi Gatmor, Chief Technical Officer of Expand Networks. “The Accelerator 1610 showcases Expand’s extremely portable code and ability to offer the world’s best acceleration technology in a form factor that can easily integrate into existing infrastructure.”</p>
<p>The Accelerator 1610 offers a platform of integrated services, including WAN Optimization, Acceleration, Management and Visibility, and Security. Ideal for all SATCOM environments, the Expand solution overcomes network challenges frequently encountered in dynamic bandwidth and dynamic latency networks, such as BGAN, INMARSAT, and MF-TDMA. It allows for the use of all subscribed bandwidth and additional throughput gains enabled by Expand’s best-of-breed byte-level caching and compression.</p>
<p>On a practical level, the Accelerator 1610 in a PC-104+ form factor can live in a satellite modem at a fixed location and can also provide a “network in a box”, a briefcase case solution in which the antenna points to a satellite dish. For military in battlefield situations, oil rig employees, VIPs, corporate executives, and many others deployed to remote locales, it is an ideal way to assure that crucial communications are not interrupted and that information is received in the most timely fashion possible.</p>
<p>Expand Accelerators have the most flexible form factors and more deployment options than any other WAN Optimization company’s, including appliance based, virtual appliance based, non-hard drive based, Softwoc, and now PC-104+ based. Expand’s technology has been accelerating satellite links for over a decade, and is deployed to a wide variety of global customers including global organizations, local enterprises, national armed forces, and civilian government agencies.</p>
