TeleCommunication Systems to Showcase Groundbreaking Technologies at Satellite 2011

Visit Booth #321 to Learn About the Latest Deployable Communications Solutions Including the Cisco IRIS Platform That Routes IP Traffic on a Satellite

ANNAPOLIS, MD and WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - March 11, 2011) - SATELLITE 2011 Booth #321 -- TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) (NASDAQ: TSYS), a world leader in highly reliable and secure mobile communication technology, today announced that the company will showcase multiple industry-driven satellite communications technologies at Satellite 2011, March 15-17, 2011 in Washington, D.C. TCS invites attendees to stop by booth #321 and learn about its exclusive arrangement with Cisco to commercialize IT communication services on the world's first space router as well as several of the company's widely implemented deployable satellite communications solutions. Technologies showcased in the booth include:

  • Internet Routing in Space (IRIS)
    Executives from TCS as well as Cisco will be on hand to talk about the Internet Routing in Space (IRIS) solution. Last month the two organizations entered into an arrangement in which TCS was selected as the exclusive operator of the IRIS solution using the Cisco® 18400 Space Router on Intelsat IS-14, the most advanced commercial satellite platform available today. This industry-first solution enables the convergence of satellite communications and existing information technology infrastructure. By utilizing the benefits of secure Layer 3 Internet Protocol (IP) routing on board the spacecraft, end-to-end IP Virtual Private Network services can be offered directly from space with new levels of flexibility and network control.

  • 2.0 M SNAP VSAT with embedded network package
    Attendees looking for a satellite solution that can be deployed and set up in under 30 minutes will be interested in the SwiftLink® SNAP 2.0M terminal, a pack-in-the-box Ku VSAT solution. Field-upgradeable to Ka or X-band with a swap of the feed boom assembly, it is designed for rapid deployment, ease of use, and suitability for harsh operating environments.

  • SwiftLink® Tactical Transportable TROPO (3T) system
    The TCS SwiftLink 3T system delivers long-haul communications where there is an absence of bandwidth and over-the-horizon communications where line-of-sight (LOS) is obstructed. On display at Satellite 2011, attendees can obtain information on this product which is a part of the TCS Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) flyaway family.

  • Hyperlite Microsat
    TCS is dedicated to providing the most innovative solutions that enable secure, deployable communications for today's Warfighter. The HyperLite Microsat enhances the TCS VSAT product family with the smallest, lightest manportable satellite communications terminal available, designed for easy use, rapid deployment, and maximum portability on the battlefield at only 27.5 lbs with all data/power cables, AC/DC power supplies, and tri-pod.
