Satellite networking solutions expanded through Spacenet, Stratacache partnership

MCLEAN, Va. — Spacenet Inc., a provider of satellite networking solutions, has launched a strategic alliance program to offer integrated digital media services. As part of the new strategic program, STRATACACHE, a provider of advanced digital media software, has joined as one of Spacenet’s Digital Media Alliance charter members.
Digital media applications, including digital signage and interactive distance learning, are increasingly being used by businesses as a way to increase revenues, lower employee training costs and improve efficiencies. Spacenet has been expanding its presence in the digital media market, including recent deployments to gas stations and convenience stores and to big box retailers. Spacenet is also helping to drive standards in this emerging market and is an active board member of the digital signage Association, which serves as a collective voice for the digital signage industry.
The Spacenet Digital Media Alliance was developed with large enterprise environments in mind, like big-box retail and restaurant chains, that have hundreds or even thousands of geographically dispersed locations. With a focus on scalability and commercial-grade quality of service, the new alliance simplifies the challenge of implementing solutions for digital signage, interactive distance learning and other applications for IP content delivery. The customized turnkey solutions provided by alliance members include content creation and management, display systems, multicast services, satellite and common carrier transport, and in-store installation and integration.
As a digital signage Alliance member, STRATACACHE and Spacenet will work together to provide an integrated end-to-end solution to customers. STRATACACHE will provide its digital signage, IP-BTV, content acceleration, content distribution and content management services and Spacenet will provide its high-performance network services to enable cost-effective delivery of content to multiple locations via satellite.
