SkyStream Networks has signed a deal with Eutelsat to provide its zBand Content Delivery platform for a new business-to-business content delivery network delivered through Eutelsat’s multimedia platform in Turin, Italy.

Under the agreement, Eutelsat will use zBand as the primary content delivery platform for the new service offered through its subsidiary, Skylogic Italia which is based in Turin. The new business communication service will be available to the estimated 400,000 small to medium-sized corporations in Piedmont, Italy. It will offer access to multimedia-rich corporate training, e-learning and telemedicine information via satellite transmission to their employees, clients and partner desktops.

SkyStream’s zBand Content Delivery platform is an all-in-one server-client software package that provides a content delivery service personalized for a targeted group or one individual. Eutelsat selected zBand for its comprehensive ability to aggregate, manage, target, deliver and present customized content such as TV-quality videos to webpages for its large enterprise customers.

zBand enables service providers such as Eutelsat to allocate network bandwidth and manage resources on a satellite-based network. In addition, zBand’s standards-based architecture and easy to use interface enabled Eutelsat to reduce installation time and bring its new enterprise data delivery service to market more quickly.
