Skycasters to Demonstrate Enhanced Satellite Internet VAR/VNO Services

By CIOReview | Monday, March 16, 2015

AKRON, OH: Skycasters, provider of broadband satellite internet for businesses, is demonstrating its enhanced satellite communications technology, products and service plans for Value Added Resellers (VARs) and Virtual Network Operators (VNOs).

According to Don Jacobs, founder of Skycasters the recent investments and infrastructure enhancements include two new 8.1-meter uplink antennas for higher gain and a stronger signal and a recent upgrade to iDirect’s Evolution platform.

“Skycasters has spent $4Mn over the last three years upgrading its teleport architecture and physical security,” says Don Jacobs, Skycasters founder. We can do this because, unlike many satellite Internet providers, Skycasters owns, controls and staffs its own NOC and teleport. This gives us the freedom to build the kind of infrastructure our VAR, VNO and corporate customers really want and really need. Our mission at SATELLITE 2015 is to clearly lay out an ‘apples to apples’ comparison of what customers are really getting from their satellite Internet providers.”
