Nov 19, 2007 (08:11 AM EST)


DULUTH, Ga., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- DataPath, Inc., a provider of satellite and wireless communications networks around the world, has added baseband solutions for its mobile satellite communications (SATCOM) networks to the General Services Administration (GSA) IT Schedule 70 contract (number GS-35F-0424T).

"Military and civilian government users require a whole solution for their critical communications needs as they rapidly deploy to battlefields, natural disaster sites and other challenging locations," said Steve Lindeman, vice president and general manager of DataPath's Integrated Systems Division. "With the addition of baseband packages to our GSA listings, we provide a streamlined, cost-effective vehicle for federal, state and local agencies to purchase DataPath's comprehensive portfolio of communications network solutions and services."

DataPath baseband solutions are scalable, modular systems that feature split NIPRnet and SIPRnet architecture, Cisco(R) routers, Cisco switches for IPv6 support, optional Cisco Call Manager Express, and the DataPath IP Accelerator(TM) for vastly improved throughput. Each package can be customized and housed in several ways, including in shelters and rugged transit cases. The new solutions now available on the GSA Schedule contract include the following, along with several technology and packaging options:

- Small Baseband Package for up to 200 users: This package can be deployed with a mobile SATCOM terminal or wireless solution and set up in less than 15 minutes to provide access to voice, video and data in locations that lack a permanent communications infrastructure.

- Medium Baseband Package for up to 500 users: The package is designed to act as a hub for smaller communications systems or as a standalone communications center. It can also be deployed in less than 15 minutes with a variety of mobile SATCOM terminal or wireless solutions for robust communications anywhere.

The solutions complement DataPath SATCOM or wireless networks, including its trailer-based and transportable SATCOM systems currently listed on the GSA Schedule.
