Cisco IRIS Updates

- April 20, 2011 - 0 Comments

Steven Boutelle, Vice President, Cisco Global Government Solutions Group would like to share some of the latest updates to the Internet Routing in Space (IRIS) program and provide an expert’s overview on where the satellite industry stands today. Watch Steven’s interview below!

To further assist in moving IRIS forward, TeleCommunications Systems, Inc. has been selected as an exclusive service provider. This is another milestone in the long-term collaboration between TCS and Cisco in an effort to move IRIS onward.

Cisco IRIS technology is transforming how government agencies and commercial organizations use IP-based network services to accomplish their goals and objectives. The Cisco 18400 Space Router is currently being used on board Intel IS-14, the most advanced commercial satellite platform currently available. With IRIS technologies, services can be provided on demand. The Cisco Space Router allows organizations to reach multiple continents from a single connection to TCS’ network infrastructure. The converged IRIS solution enables voice, data and video traffic over a single IP network to increase efficiency and flexibility compared to more fragmented satellite communication networks.
