Updated Gateway system launched by Speedcast

Speedcast has launched SIGMA Gateway Xtreme, a new network management device capable of controlling Speedcast’s Ku-band VSAT services, Inmarsat’s Fleet Xpress and 4G/LTE services, to offer redundancy in communications links alongside virtual machine capabilities.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“The launch of SIGMA Gateway earlier in the year was a milestone in bringing secure virtualised server environments to the maritime market,” said Tim Bailey, executive vice president, products, marketing and business development, Speedcast.

“We’re excited to be able to offer even better reliability and redundancy with the launch of SIGMA Gateway Xtreme. SIGMA Gateway Xtreme demonstrates Speedcast’s commitment to innovation and to delivering market-leading products that bring value to our customers.”

The equipment is comprised of redundant and duplicated hardware, including solid-state hard drives, multiple fans and remote power management, backed up by multiple automated systems in order to mitigate both hardware and software failures.

SIGMA Gateway Xtreme also includes cyber-security protection capabilities, powered by Fortinet, with the unit also able to run an optional virtualised device onboard as a further layer of security. The fully managed service includes content filtering, a Unified Threat Management (UTM) platform and intrusion detection with reporting capabilities.{/mprestriction}
