Virtual Connexions will launch a new satellite access modem designed to extend broadband IP connectivity to remote locations not served by terrestrial networks. The modem will be announced at the Satellite 2005 Trade Show in Washington next week.

The VC-1000 Satellite Access Modem is designed to allow government, businesses and non-governmental organizations to extend broadband IP connectivity to remote locations not served by terrestrial networks. Virtual Connexions says that the modem will be able to carry voice over IP, video and data applications over a satellite uplink with the speed, quality and reliability of a terrestrial connection.

Virtual Connexions says that the new modem is aimed at a "fast-growing" market requiring connectivity in remote locations. According to the company, 60 million business sites world wide remain beyond the reach of land-based broadband networks, and Virtual Connexions hopes to reach them with its patent-pending Virtual Bandwidth Manager technology.

"We have created a private and secure solution that is easy to implement and manage, as simply as a terrestrial IP device. It offers global broadband access," Virtual Conexions president and CEO Paul Bolduc said in a statement. "Virtual Conexions is offering the kind of solution that organizations are demanding."
