SpeedNet to enhance web browsing at sea

Satellite communications company EMC has announced the launch of SpeedNet, a new system aimed at combatting latency in internet browsing at sea.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}SpeedNet uses a proprietary intelligent protocol to predictively fetch, compress and push multiple layers of websites at once to local servers.

The end result for the user is a significantly more speedy browsing experience, as links clicked on the website will only need to be loaded from that local server rather than requiring the wait time involved with sending the request to a satellite, down to shore, and back again.

“We have set the bar for delivering the fastest web browsing experience possible over satellite even before HTS is widely available,” said Abel Avellan, CEO and founder, EMC.

“This is another pioneering example of how customers can have a significantly better QOE (quality of experience) in the world’s most remote locations.”

“No other provider has brought together high-speed Internet, live TV, streaming, on-demand video, for remote users. This empowers us to offer customers a seamless branded journey for their passengers and employees akin to their QoE in their homes and offices.”{/mprestriction}
