Speedcast International Limited announced the release of SIGMA Gateway Xtreme, a network device in order to manage Speedcast’s Ku VSAT network, Inmarsat’s Fleet Xpress network, and 4G/LTE services.
SIGMA Gateway Xtreme provides a virtualized environment (VM) where a third party’s virtual machines (VM) can be hosted. Then it will host its VM across both servers and present them as a single instance.
“SIGMA Gateway Xtreme is designed to withstand harsh Maritime environments, delivering the high availability and performance of Fleet Xpress in a secure and integrated environment. Comprised of fully redundant and duplicated hardware, including solid-state hard drives, multiple fans and remote power management, SIGMA Gateway Xtreme is backed up by multiple automated systems in order to mitigate both hardware and software failures,” Speedcast said in a statement.
According to the company, Fortinet will supply SIGMA’s cybersecurity protection, which will be consisted of content filtering, a Unified Threat Management (UTM) platform and intrusion detection with full reporting capabilities.
“The launch of SIGMA Gateway earlier in the year was a milestone in bringing secure virtualized server environments to the Maritime market. We’re excited to be able to offer even better reliability and redundancy with the launch of SIGMA Gateway Xtreme. SIGMA Gateway Xtreme demonstrates Speedcast’s commitment to innovation and to delivering market-leading products that bring value to our customers,” said Tim Bailey, Executive Vice President, Products, Marketing, & Business Development of Speedcast.
