Flexibility, Reliability, and Security Are Key Features of Service Targeted at Broader Government and Enterprise Markets

Vienna, VA, May 12, 2015 – Lepton Global Solutions, a leading provider of customized, cost-effective, end-to-end satellite communications solutions, today announced the launch of its Managed Satellite Network Service – North America for enterprise and government markets. Leveraging the iDirect platform, this service will provide a secure and reliable satellite network using Intelsat’s Horizons 1 North American satellite (@ 127° WL) footprint and a Lepton-owned, co-located iDirect hub at the Hawaii Pacific Teleport in Oahu, Hawaii. Lepton will manage the end-to-end service from its own Network Operations Center (NOC) at Lepton HQ in Vienna, Virginia.

“In addition to the inherent reliability and security features of our satellite network,” said Isabel Bacon, Managing Partner at Lepton Global Solutions, “we offer unprecedented flexibility with an array of customizable features, and our concierge-level customer service ensures an excellent user experience. Equally importantly, in an increasingly vulnerable cyber security environment, Lepton’s compliance with the highest standards of handling sensitive information provides an elevated base for security for all customers.”
