Cisco Takes Internet Routing to Space

Cisco has announced the success of an in-orbit test for its developing Internet Routing in Space (IRIS) technology.

This is the first-ever deployment of an Internet Protocol (IP) router aboard a commercial GEO satellite.  The technology was launched via Intelsat’s IS-14 satellite on Nov. 23, 2009.

“Cisco’s IRIS technology has the potential to transform how the government uses satellite services for military and other communications, ”  said Michael Florio, JCTD operational manager, Space and Defense Battle Lab.  “We are pleased to be working with Cisco and its partners to test and validate this transformational technology.”
