Cloud OpenStack deployment with traffic management use cases and Kafka data feed supports Inmarsat’s planned 5G layer within its new global mobility network
WATERLOO, ON., CANADA, March 29, 2022 -- Inmarsat, the world leader in global, mobile satellite communications, has chosen Sandvine’s Application and Network Intelligence in its OpenStack Private Telco Cloud. The three-year deal will support Inmarsat’s work in building out the ORCHESTRA network: a first of its kind service for global mobility and government customers. ORCHESTRA is a dynamic mesh network combining ELERA (L-band) and Global Xpress (Ka-band) satellite networks, with terrestrial 5G as well as targeted low earth orbit (LEO) satellite capacity.
Building on an existing seven-year relationship for network policy control between the two companies, the new contract spans Flexible Policy and Traffic Management, use cases for Satellite Networks, as well as Sandvine’s ScoreCard, Insights exports, cloud-optimized Active Logic Hyperscale Data Plane, and Maestro Policy Engine.
Bringing Sandvine’s machine learning-based application classification and single-pane visualization into the cloud will enable Inmarsat to enhance traffic management capabilities and customer experience with greater scalability and lower costs.
Lyndon Cantor, CEO, Sandvine, said: “Our relationship with Inmarsat started with network policy control in 2015, and has since evolved towards new 5G network architecture for emerging 5G and satellite services. By migrating to our ActiveLogic Hyperscale Data Plane, Inmarsat can roll out new services that meet rapidly changing customer and market demands, and deploy use cases such as Network Optimization, Heavy User Management, Video Streaming Management, Wholesale and Peering Link Management, and Usage-Based Services.”
