Cisco VOIP over VSAT
Only Cisco® Integrated & Certified VSAT Solution

The process of deploying a satellite enabled non-stop networking solution became much easier for corporate IT departments with the advent of the “VSAT Network Module” from network equipment manufacturing giant Cisco. The Cisco VSAT Module with OptiStreams services provides a unique solution for mission-critical disaster recovery/backup networking and other on demand applications, integrated directly with a customer’s existing Cisco router equipment. Leveraging the industry’s most advanced satellite technology, it delivers available-anywhere broadband capabilities that can be used for failover connectivity, digital content delivery, IP telephony, Internet/VPN access and more. Competitive solutions utilize multiple devices, increasing the complexity of the system and adding components that may fail. OptiStreams solution reduces complexity and eliminates the problem of multiple points of failure by using the Cisco router creating a tremendous leap in the ease of managing satellite and terrestrial links in a hybrid network

Broadband Grant Opportunity

Through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, $4.8 million is available through two programs, for eligible for-profit, non-profit and tribal organizations seeking to expand quality broadband service: the Broadband Initiatives Program (BIP) through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the related Broadband Technology Opportunity Program (BTOP) through the National Telecommunications and Information and Administration (NTIA). BIP will furnish grants or loans to rapidly expand the access and quality of broadband services across Rural America. The BTOP will make grants available to deploy broadband infrastructure in unserved and underserved areas, enhance broadband capacity at public computer centers, and promote sustainable broadband projects. Together, both programs will advance the objectives of the Recovery Act by creating jobs and stimulating economic growth. ERC can assist in preparing proposals for this opportunity.
