Internet Routing in Space (IRIS) on Intelsat 14

There is an exploding growth in connected devices, smart apps, video, and bandwidth. Operators are investing in network expansion and the satellite industry is no different. Government and commercial clients know networks will grow but have to do so across multiple satellites, transponders, and frequencies. How can they address this while maintaining and controlling costs, and ensure continuity and improving performance? TCS OS-IRIS.

TCS OS-IRIS is the world’s first commercial service offering of a Cisco enabled Internet Routing In Space (IRIS) managed network service. The combination of Cisco IRIS satellite and terminal architecture, in addition to TCS global network implementation and support capabilities, bring a new era of true IP end-to-end communications to the satellite industry and our clients.
