Optimised Broadband via Satellite

Posted: 04th May, 2004 By: MarkJ
Allot Communications has today touted its new NetEnforcer platform for broadband satellite ISP's. The service is a traffic management and service control device with monitoring, traffic shaping and reporting capabilities up to Layer 7:


Sat-AADSL-PackPlus offer guarantees 300 Kbps connectivity and QoS for subscribers not reached by terrestrial ADSL

Allot Communications, the traffic management company, today announced that Netsystem, Italy’s leading Internet via satellite provider, has selected Allot’s NetEnforcer platform to manage the protocol traffic of its 65,000 subscriber community. Allot’s award-winning NetEnforcer product line is a traffic management and service control device that provides sophisticated monitoring, traffic shaping and reporting capabilities up to Layer 7.

Netsystem, with its strategic partner, SES ASTRA, Europe's leading direct-to-home satellite service provider, serves subscribers not reached by a terrestrial connection with a broadband service fully comparable, in terms of price and performance, to the regular ADSL offering.

Combining two NetEnforcer devices from Allot Communications with Netsystem’s Bandwidth Control Manager has enabled Netsystem to optimise its platform, thereby successfully answering the business and technical challenges involved in pioneering a totally new technology – ADSL via satellite:

Offering guaranteed bandwidth per subscriber, as stated in the Service Level Agreement (SLA).

Guaranteeing user fairness, in a tiered service model.

Monitoring the impact of bandwidth-hungry Peer to Peer (P2P) protocols such as KaZaA and other multimedia file sharing applications.

“Providing Quality of Service comparable to terrestrial ADSL service enables us to meet our business goals and attract new subscribers to our fast Internet service. As a result of this capability, in May 2003 Telecom Italia chose Netsystem technology, including Allot’s NetEnforcer, to launch its ADSL via satellite service re-named with its ADSL brand ALICE-SAT”, said Stefano Frassa, NetSystem CTO. “NetEnforcer was selected because of its P2P monitoring capabilities and its seamless integration within our NBCM,” explains Frassà.

“Netsystem’s project shows again the importance of a service control solution to help network and internet service providers achieve their business goals” said Menashe Mukhtar, VP International Sales at Allot Communications. “This project was awarded to Allot because of the unique capabilities of our product and the innovative support of our engineers in establishing integration with Netsystem provisioning systems.”
