NewCom International Selects Stampede's FX Series Devices

By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor

NewCom International, a Miami-based telecommunications company that specializes in the global transport of video, data and voice communications via satellite, IP and fiber, has selected Stampede’s FX Series devices to improve bandwidth utilization and response times for its satellite broadband Internet services. 

Thanks to Stampede’s WAN acceleration solution, NewCom has been able to improve user response times by as much as 25 percent, and reduced overall bandwidth utilization by 20 percent.

“We are always looking for ways to minimize congestion and optimize performance for our customers, and Stampede’s solution helps us to ensure that our customers are getting what they are paying for and more,” said Dora Mejia, director of sales and business development for NewCom, in a statement. 

Mejia said that what makes Stampede’s solution so powerful is that it doesn’t just benefit one region or satellite; it affects everything that is connected to the company’s hub. 

“By partnering with Stampede, we are gaining efficiencies for our clients across Latin America, the Middle East and Africa,” he added.

Gordon Dorworth, Stampede Technologies’ (News - Alert) president and CEO said that Stampede is pleased to welcome NewCom to its growing list of satellite broadband service providers, adding that the Internet Service Provider, or “ISP,” market continues to be an area of growth for Stampede, especially for those ISPs in the VSAT arena. 

“Our flexible architecture and deployment options allow Service Providers like NewCom to get started with our single-sided optimization solution for improving their network traffic, and when they are ready, they can deploy our two-sided acceleration to further improve satellite-based Internet access to their customers,” Dorworth said.

Stampede Technologies is a provider of WAN optimization and acceleration solutions for Satellite and terrestrial-based networks.

Back in February, Stampede had announced that they have signed an OEM agreement with Global Protocols, Inc. for integrating SkipWare onto its FX Series appliances designed to accelerate and optimize satellite communications for IP traffic. 

Stampede will include SkipWare on the FX 1000, FX 2000 and FX 4000 Series of WAN Optimization appliances to help military organizations achieve greater application performance across mission-critical satellite networks, while maintaining Space Communication Protocol Standards interoperability. 

With SkipWare integrated into the FX Series appliances from Stampede, government agencies will have faster and more secure delivery of mission-critical information needed to do their job from any remote location.
