Also on the Eutelsat booth will be the Eutelsat Partner Village where selected business partners will present their broadband access and distribution products and services.

The company will also present its two-way high-speed Internet via satellite service for business networks that provides upstream rates of up to 1 Mbps and downstream rates of 40 Mbps.

In the Partner Village, Hughes Network Systems will present DIRECWAY, a broadband satellite service for small and medium-sized enterprises that operates through capacity on Eutelsat’s W1 satellite. With the help of the new DIRECWAY 4020, which consists of a switch and router based on PowerPC-technology, small networks can be built and connected easily to the Internet via four Ethernet-ports.

Dutch company Aramiska that leases capacity on Eutelsat’s recently launched ATLANTIC BIRD(tm) satellite will be present in the Partner Village in order to demonstrate its new two-way broadband service based on the DVB-RCS standard for small and medium-sized enterprises.

Teles EuroServices SkyDSL, which enables private users and small enterprises to add a fast download channel to an existing narrowband connection, will also feature in the Partner Village. Its software automatically adds the SkyDSL connection, with a transfer rate of up to 8 Mbps to the normal analogue or digital Internet connection. It will present its new solution and commercial offer to support small SoHo-networks with up to five users at CeBIT.
