Satellite connections are not only expensive but often experience outages, resulting in loss of productivity and potential loss of business. With Thru OptiBAND™, easily resolve this issue and get the most of your satellite or slow connections at sea or in remote offices.

Address slow connection speeds, reduce outages and improve collaboration with the help of OptiBAND which allows you to allocate bandwidth based on roles, prioritize file transfers in real-time and easily resume uploads/downloads after an outage — so you can ensure your users can continue collaborating without any interruptions. Combined with the Thru’s robust checkpoint restart, exchange content and any size files worry free, no matter where they are.

With OptiBAND You Can

Efficiently manage expensive satellite bandwidth

OptiBAND offers bandwidth optimization when very expensive limited bandwidth needs to be efficiently leveraged by users. Thru’s built-in adaptive real-time bandwidth management dynamically allocates bandwidth consumed in the messaging channel and compresses files to save bandwidth. It also addresses slow connection speeds by applying a combination of Thru’s accelerated content delivery network (CDN) (which uses parallel block streaming) and data caching.

Automatically prioritize mission critical messages

With greater visibility and awareness, IT administrators can accelerate business critical messages and prioritize them above less important traffic. OptiBAND uses rule-based prioritization to reorder high priority messages based on users and helps businesses stay on top of their mission critical needs and deal with fewer disruptions. So now your messages are not only transmitted faster but also in the right order.

Stay ‘always on’ no matter where you are or what size of file

Geographically dispersed users and employees can now quickly exchange big files and collaborate easily. OptiBAND locally caches data, and masks outages and slow connections. In cases of network interruptions, OptiBAND transfers data once connections are restored. With the benefit of file transfer checkpoint restart, it picks up transfers where it left off during previous attempted transfers. OptiBAND also automatically makes allocation adjustments by continuously monitoring transmission speed and reacting to connection speed changes, such as switching from VSAT to WiFi provided connections.

How OptiBAND Works

  • OptiBAND continuously monitors the connection and captures a detailed audit trail (Pulse Matrix report). Information includes response time, outage windows and performance during transfer activity. Information can be matched to ship routes.
  • OptiBAND provides content and audit aggregation (hub spoke model). Data from all locations is available for analysis on the hub (‘shore’ location).
  • OptiBAND includes routing configuration which controls content push from the hub to remote locations.
  • As a content delivery platform, OptiBAND can be used for automatic data collection from systems on top of moving vessels or in remote locations. Combined with Thru Automation module, data can be aggregated and sent to clients data stores.
