Global provider of industrial-grade satellite communication services, CapRock Communications, has announced that...
it has completed the expansion of its IPxpress core network to its Macae, Brazil teleport.
IPxpress is CapRock’s Internet-protocol-based (IP-based) core network architecture that employs multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) to enable secure transmission of corporate data, digital telephony and real-time video over its managed satellite communications services.
“Our clients operate in harsh and extremely remote locations all over the world in industries like oilfield, construction, maritime, mining and disaster relief,” said CapRock president and chief operating officer Errol Olivier, “so the big benefit of IPxpress, from their perspective, comes from what we call ‘follow-me’ networking. As customers move from one location to the next within the CapRock global network, their IP addresses and IP telephone numbers follow them wherever they go - just as if they were plugged in at the corporate office.”
