Livewire Digital has over 25 years experience working with satellite services. Our expertise covers application development, network engineering, protocol design and formal type approval systems. Examples include remote newsgathering and situation awareness solutions for use with portable L-Band terminals, bespoke communications systems for fleets of racing yachts to the realisation of a multicast capable Radio Access Network for a microSAS.
As part of a European Space Agency (EAS) contract, Livewire Digital has developed RazorLink Smart Networking. RazorLink is a Software Defined Networking (SDN) solution that can integrate satellite, cellular, and terrestrial services in line with one of the headline objectives of 5G.
RazorLink can implement a Hybrid WAN that efficiently combines high latency VSAT with low latency cellular. RazorLink can aggregate services for additional bandwidth or failover and secure the link, encrypting data whatever route the traffic takes. RazorLink WAN Optimisation accelerates TCP and adds resilience to UDP, improving performance over high latency satellite connections.
RazorLink is a software solution that can be installed on a Mac or PC, deployed like a router (virtual or physical) or embedded alongside system firmware. The counterpart can be run on dedicated hardware or virtualised on Private or Public Cloud services.
RazorLink is scalable and can be deployed as a SaaS model within a Telco or Service Providers network.
