“Every day more people rely on satellite data for ship to shore or remote communications. webXaccelerator lets them get the most out of the valuable satellite airtime they need to keep their businesses running” - Dr. Luis Soltero
Maryville, TN (PRWEB) November 17, 2010
Global Marine Networks, the leader in advancing satellite data speed and services, announces the introduction of the GMN webXaccelerator for ship-to-shore and remote communications needs for the commercial fishing, marine transport, cruise ships, offshore oil rigs, and first-response communications coordination markets. The webXaccelerator is a data accelerator and control router that gives users of satellite and other wireless data systems unprecedented control of their satellite data installations, while providing data speeds up to five times faster than uncompressed rates.
“The webXaccelerator is designed to save customers time and money through satellite specific data compression and the ability to sell and control shared data feed access, while saving satellite system providers time and money by making installations easier, more reliable and more flexible,” said Dr. Luis Soltero, Chief Technical Officer of Global Marine Networks. “The webXaccelerator can be used to address common situations for satellite data system users and installers: create a satellite-based Internet café; generate new revenue or control shared usage through user-defined pin codes for clients, crew or passengers using a single data feed, solve installation challenges through load-balancing, or increase reliability by changing between two different satellite networks on the fly.”
webXaccelerator data compression and control functions enable users to get the most out of their satellite data service through a host of features, including:
- SmartCompression™ gives up to five times faster data speeds than uncompressed rates
- Usage controls can limit groups or individual users by time, megabytes, or web site white/black listing
- Pin codes let customers generate new revenue by sharing or selling unique pin codes to crews, clients or passengers
- Firewall filtering by MAC or TCP/IP address and/or port number provide advanced controls
- Seamless failover service redirects data feeds giving users the ultimate reliability of changing between different satellite networks on the fly
- Shared onboard caching provides fast load times for commonly visited sites
- No expensive land-based server required
The GMN webXaccelerator wall-mount, rack-mount and wifi versions are available to the public through Global Marine Networks Channel Partners, as found on the company’s dealer locator at http://www.globalmarinenet.com/dealers.php. Optional features include the award-winning XGate email acceleration service.
The GMN webXaccelerator works with every major satellite data service provider including Inmarsat, Iridium, Globalstar, Thuraya, MSAT, VSAT systems, or any IP-based connection. It works at all data rates above 2.4KBps, and is specifically designed for the new generation of higher-speed satellite data systems such as Inmarsat FleetBroadband and Iridium OpenPort.
