UHP Networks: the new name of innovative VSAT technology

Berlin, Germany.

Romantis Group announced that it is renaming its VSAT equipment business UHP Networks. Change of the name reflects increased business focus, with all VSAT operations consolidated under the UHP brand. It also differentiates the equipment business from the capacity leasing and service businesses of the rest of Romantis.

UHP (which stands for Universal Hardware Platform) is a line of highly innovative equipment for IP networking over satellite. Developed and manufactured by Romantis Group, the UHP product has received worldwide recognition over the last years as the industry’s most versatile line of satellite routers. The UHP design uses software-defined radio architecture, capable of supporting any network topology, and features a revolutionary Real-Time Operating System with unprecedented throughput and efficiency, as well as super-compact implementation. Recently released UHP-200 can process 410 Mbps of aggregate traffic and 300,000 IP packets per second, which makes it the fastest satellite router in the industry.

Over the last two years, the UHP equipment unit of Romantis has quadrupled its revenue and increased its profitability. UHP VSAT solution has a growing rate of adoption in the industry, in particular in mission-critical, enterprise data and multimedia broadcast networks. Among the operators who successfully deployed UHP VSAT networks are several Fortune 500 companies, including two large US telecom operators and a major US media network, as well as government agencies in US and Canada and one of the largest utility companies in Europe.

UHP Networks is headquartered in Montreal, Canada. Product manufacturing continues at the Romantis operations base in Germany, while more product development is now being undertaken in Canada.

Dr. Vagan Shakhgildian, President and CEO of UHP Networks Inc, commented: “These are exciting times for our global team. Our recent successes have validated our value proposition and our business model. The company is profitable, has zero debt and is growing rapidly. Our main strength remains a combination of the revolutionary UHP technology and our engineering talent. Consolidation of our global VSAT equipment operations will allow us to better serve our customers. We are continuously improving our processes. We have just introduced a new sophisticated ERP system and a new customer support system. Our company has received significant further investment which is being directed towards expansion of R&D, operations, engineering and customer support teams, as well as towards sales and marketing. We have released our new product platform, UHP-200, and new product launches are planned before end of the year. We have also launched our new website which contains an enhanced set of product information, including new manuals.“
