ViaSat Receives $11 Million In Orders For Joint IP Modem Products And Upgrades

CARLSBAD, Calif., Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ViaSat Inc. (Nasdaq:VSAT) has received orders in excess of $11 million for Joint IP Modem Network Control Centers (NCCs), remote modems, and Joint IP Modem enhancements. These production contracts enable the Department of Defense to complete its roll out of interoperable network services to warfighters from teleports and Strategic Tactical Entry Points (STEPs). In addition, the orders include further development of the Joint IP Modem to enable efficient regional connectivity within a larger global network footprint. These awards follow successfully deliveries against previous contract obligations.

The objective of the government Joint IP Modem program is to create warfighter/service network interoperability, promote satellite bandwidth efficiency, and ultimately enable disparate network convergence; important attributes for DoD networking technologies.

"The U.S. government relies on commercial satellites for nearly 80 percent of its leased transponder capacity needs," said Bill Connelly, general manager of ViaSat Tactical Satellite Networks. "Given the current inefficiencies resulting from the operation of multiple, incompatible DoD networks, we expect this efficient, interoperable open-standard Joint IP Modem to reduce redundancy in expensive satellite bandwidth while shrinking logistics, sustainment, and training costs. That benefits the warfighter and taxpayer alike."

The Joint IP Modem hardware represents the latest open-standards based satellite networking technology. The modem offers as much as 330 Mbps of total forward link, TRANSEC covered, IPv6 capacity to each remote modem while enabling a return link up to 8 Msps. Each remote modem is equipped with the packet processing power required to operate at line speed, enabling maximum warfighter flexibility. Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM), Variable Coding and Modulation (VCM) and Dynamic Link Adaptation (DLA), combined with the ViaSat layered Quality of Service (QoS) architecture, offer unmatched bandwidth efficiency in changing environments. Able to accommodate additional enhancements through software upgrades, the Joint IP Modem is designed for extended product life.
