VIACAST OFFERS HIGH-SPEED MULTIMEDIA SOLUTION TO SOHO MARKET.

ViaCast Networks, Inc., Ijamsville, Md., a leader in end-to- end broadband IP satellite solutions, has introduced its new One.to.One USB-based satellite router. The One.to.One is targeted towards small to medium enterprise (SME) and small- office-home-office (SOHO) customers for the delivery of rich media data content to the user's desktop. The One.to.One is the newest member of ViaCast's Advanced BroadMedia Solutions, which offer an end-to-end broadband satellite solution that includes a comprehensive line of encapsulator/gateways and multimedia receivers and software.

Continuing ViaCast's philosophy of building easy-to-use, high performance broadband network appliances, the One.to.One satellite router is a stand-alone satellite receiver that sits alongside a user's PC, much like a standard external DSL, cable or dial-up modem. The One.to.One is fully Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) compliant and connects directly via an L-band interface to a common low-cost satellite dish outdoor unit or LNB. Specifically designed for the "mediacasting" market, the One.to.One output supports the industry standard USB interface now commonly found on desktop PCs around the world.

By delivering rich-media content to the user's PC at speeds up to 2Mbps, the One.to.One complements ViaCast's world-class line of enterprise and Internet infrastructure receivers that currently support rich media content delivery at speeds up to 80Mbps. ViaCast's current line of multimedia receivers, specifically the IP-COMPANION(R) satellite receiver/router and QUANTUM-MSR(R) multimedia satellite receiver are designed for high-speed enterprise LAN environments, as well as Internet infrastructure applications.

Typical Internet infrastructure applications include the feeding of Internet content to the edge of the network in order to bypass congested multi-router terrestrial lines for Internet headends such as ISPs, cable headends, DSL headends and other telecommunication service providers.

"We are launching the One.to.One product line to address the individual user's needs," said ViaCast President and CEO Mitch Robinson. "Unlike our industry leading IP-COMPANION and QUANTUM-MSR products that deliver high-speed IP data via Ethernet, the One.to.One's support of the ubiquitous USB interface allows our solutions to deliver personal 'one-to-one' Internet content directly to the user's PC. We are positioning the One.to.One product line as ViaCast's 'personal edition' of our stand-alone embedded enterprise and Internet infrastructure product lines."

The One.to.One is available now and will be on display along with ViaCast's complete line of end-to-end broadband solutions at ViaCast's stand number 4.341 at the IBC 2000 Convention, September 8-12th.
