Frost & Sullivan Recognizes IRIS Innovation: The Future of Satellite-Based Communication

Over the last decade, commercial satellite technology has evolved to
 consistently provide communications for emergency response, disaster recovery, military and commercial applications.

Cisco’s Internet Routing In Space (IRIS) solution is revolutionizing the satellite communication industry by bringing the networking capabilities of Cisco IOS Software to space.

Based on growth, innovation and market leadership, Frost & Sullivan has presented the 2012 Global Technology Innovation Award in the Global Satellite Transponder Market to Cisco. The Technology Innovation Award is a prestigious recognition of Cisco’s accomplishments in the satellite industry.

According to Frost & Sullivan, “Cisco’s IRIS solution allows satellite operators to better compete in the greater communications industry landscape by offering standardized IP protocols to the satellite market.”

While Cisco offers Advanced Services to
 assist customers with network planning, optimization and operations, Cisco is not a service provider that provisions communication
 services for end users. Cisco has transitioned operations for
 production service of the IRIS capabilities on
board the Intelsat IS-14 satellite to TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. TCS provides OS-IRIS
 managed satellite services for government and commercial customer use, allowing organizations to reach multiple continents from a single connection to TCS’ network infrastructure.
