New SD-WAN connectivity solution from neXat
November 2023 by Marc Jacob
The maritime, mobile, corporate and government sectors will benefit from significantly improved communications through the new Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) solution from neXat, which integrates configuration, monitoring and control into a single user platform.
neXLink has been designed to streamline business networking and enable optimal application performance through the use of centrally controlled and managed Wide Area Network (WAN) virtualisation. Capable of aggregating LEO, MEO and GEO satellites as well as 4G/5G links, neXLink ensures networks can be easily configured and monitored centrally through neXat’s Operations Support Systems/Business Support Systems (OSS/BSS) platform, resulting in reduced network management complexity and overall costs.
neXLink provides businesses with a versatile and essential solution for the optimal functioning through a number of networks. The solution not only benefits maritime networks, especially in terms of fleet owners, but also terrestrial mobile and fixed networks.
Offering an integrated communications system consisting of a combination of LEO, GEO and cellular networks, neXLink directs traffic to the most suitable link. This is determined by factors such as bandwidth, cost, stability and latency, with the solution making appropriately tailored connections to the different types of transports available. neXLink can even provide the user with a static IP address, or range of addresses, depending on the environment. All this is achieved through the same centralised interface.
Since the solution is integrated into neXat’s fully managed services platform, users can action, configurate and manage their assets and networks using the centralised interface, while benefiting from an extensive range of SD-WAN appliances, real time services and 24/7 support.
