UHP Networks has announced RUN, a FaaS broadband data solution optimised to take advantage of the maximum efficiency provided by Intelsat EpicNG’s high-throughput fleet.
RUN is an in-country VSAT service with a cloud-based network management system. Working together, UHP and Intelsat are uniquely positioned to deliver this high-efficiency solution to enterprises, telcos and government users that require a flexible, high-performance infrastructure. RUN uses UHP’s low-capex, universal routers to provide an easy-to-operate platform that initially will be available in Africa, the Middle East, and Central and South Asia.
“RUN is designed to lower the barrier of entry for deploying high-throughput, in-county VSAT services,” said Vagan Shakhgildian, President and CEO of UHP Networks. “Combining Intelsat EpicNG’s improved performance with UHP’s unique, software-definable VSAT platform addresses the initial cost for private network hardware and makes the service easier to manage. This enables service providers to cost-effectively deploy solutions to support both existing and emerging applications.”
“By powering the UHP RUN service, customers will be able to leverage the Intelsat EpicNG platform and local infrastructure to enable more traffic to cost-effectively originate and land in-country,” said Jean-Philippe Gillet, Vice President and General Manager of Broadband for Intelsat.
