Kymeta Successfully Demonstrates Hybrid Data Backhaul on Cellular and Satellite Networks
In September 2018, Kymeta—the communications company making good on the promise of global, mobile connectivity—conducted a series of field trials with United States federal agents to successfully demonstrate the benefits and feasibility of reliable, seamless communications along the southern border of New Mexico. Along with partner CopaSAT, and trial partners Cradlepoint, Inc. and TrellisWare Technologies, Kymeta demonstrated the reliability of its dynamic network capabilities that leveraged both cellular and satellite from a moving platform.
Kymeta successfully demonstrated a complete hybrid network architecture to field agents operating in a communications degraded environment. The Kymeta terminal provided on-the-move connectivity to SES satellites which was blended with terrestrial LTE networks using a Cradlepoint software defined wide-area-network (SD-WAN) router. Access to this network was extended to agents using TrellisWare mobile ad-hoc mesh net (MANET) radios. Kymeta’s hybridization model combines satellite and cellular networks for enhanced performance and allows for dynamic traffic management between networks enabling best-cost data routing and other software defined features. Agents used existing communications equipment as-is, with no modifications or satellite expertise required to access the network. Smart devices, laptops, unmanned aerial systems (UAS), cameras, and other communications solutions stayed connected from a moving vehicle with no disruption in service or network quality.
“Traditionally, mobile satellite solutions come in the form of very small aperture terminals (VSAT) mounted on specially designed communications vehicles or deployable field kits that only provide communications when stationary and require a technician to setup and point the antenna,” said Scott Tatum, Director, Complex Solutions, CopaSAT. “The technology brought by Kymeta demonstrated that reliable satellite communications can exist on virtually any mobile platform, on the move, and with little to no operator training or involvement.”
The architecture leveraged an SD-WAN topology to combine satellite and cellular network technologies. Using SD-WAN is critical as it enables dynamic backhaul routing using the best backhaul connections available. In a dense urban environment with modern infrastructure, LTE might be the best path. However, in remote operational areas satellite is likely best. When both solutions represent beneficial backhaul pathways, the SD-WAN is leveraged to intelligently route data and shape traffic flow. Mission critical information can be delivered via multiple pathways for redundancy, where high-bandwidth traffic, such as file sharing, could be routed to a separate connection. The SD-WAN makes the best decision on how to route data in a dynamic and changing environment so that operators can focus on the task at hand.
“The combination of these devices and solutions enabled secure and seamless communications from operators in a field environment to other operators and commanders distributed across the country,” said Ben Posthuma, Senior Solutions Engineer, Kymeta. “The system automatically and dynamically switched between cellular and satellite to find the best connection quality. The agents didn’t have to tell the system to switch, it just happened. All the users had to do was connect to the Wi-Fi in their vehicles, and the system did the rest without additional intervention.”
In addition, the system provides the added benefit of working with existing communications equipment.
“Kymeta eliminates communications challenges in the field by providing low-profile, mobile SATCOM solutions that can deliver mission-critical information regardless of location,” said Posthuma. “The antenna works with existing communications tools exactly how they were purchased to be used and trained to be used. The hybridized solution allows for leveraging existing tools without anyone having to become a SATCOM expert.”
The results of the trial will allow Kymeta to move forward in enabling hybridized services to organizations around the world, giving them access to full situational awareness in the field, whether stationary or on the move.
The world’s demand for ubiquitous mobile connectivity is irrefutable. A global, mobile network is the answer to connecting people and places that have never been connected before.
Kymeta is making seamless, always-connected mobile communications possible with a unique hybrid approach that enables satellite and cellular networks to deliver a single, global, mobile network. End-to-end mobile communications are delivered with Kymeta KĀLO™ connectivity services, and the world’s first and only electronically-steered, flat-panel satellite terminal that goes places traditional satellite dishes cannot. The Kymeta KyWay™ terminal makes high-throughput, mobile communications possible in cars, trains, buses, trucks, boats, and much more.
If it moves, Kymeta keeps it connected.

Updated Analysis of Pivotal Study Reveals: Proactive, High Dosage of Venofer® Significantly Reduces Risk of Death or Major Cardiovascular Events in Haemodialysis Patients22.1.2019 09:00 | Tiedote
Regulatory News: This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190121005426/en/ Further to the announcement on 29 October 2018, Vifor Pharma provides an update to the results of the Proactive IV irOn Therapy in haemodiALysis patients (PIVOTAL) trial. This update was necessitated by identification of a programming error in the original analysis by the investigators. The re-analysis of the data revealed a statistically significant improvement in the treatment effects of a higher dose of Venofer® (i.v. iron sucrose) compared with a lower dose. These results supersede those presented at the High-Impact Clinical Trial session at ASN Kidney Week 2018 and published on The New England Journal of Medicine website, NEJM.org, on 26 October 2018. The updated results can be viewed on: www.NEJM.org (DOI: 10.1056/NEJMoa1810742). In the updated results, the primary endpoint ‒ which was the composite of nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfa
