WARSAW, Poland, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- TS2 Satellite Technologies' network in
Iraq and Afghanistan has over 15,000 military users of local broadband
satellite connections.

"We were among the first telecommunications operators in the satellite
technology in the territory of Iraq and Afghanistan, and as such we have
enjoyed a successful cooperation with the U.S. Army for several years now,"
says Marcin Frackiewicz, CEO of the TS2 Satellite Technologies. 

TS2 Satellite Technologies offers two-way high-speed Internet access with no
phone lines, no cable and no dial-up modem. It's always on, available
virtually anywhere, and affordable. The laptop or Wi-Fi network can receive
Internet signal through a special satellite VSAT modem, which was usually set
up in a building or tent when deployed.

The one VSAT access point provides the following services for soldiers:

-- Broadband access to the Internet (WWW, E-mail, FTP etc.)
-- Data transfer to many other users simultaneously
-- Telephone connections including VoIP, IP phone
-- Video-conference connections

Advantages of the system:

-- Short set-up time 
-- Fast and easy upgrades
-- Possibility of guaranteed CIR
-- Transmission in almost all weather conditions

The communication among the bases is possible thanks to the simultaneous lease
of bands on the Intelsat 10-02, Intelsat 901 and Eutelsat W6 satellites whose
coverage enables configuration of connections between any place in Europe,
Middle East and Southwest Asia.
