It seems odd that this kind of work would be sponsored by the American DoD instead of by an international conglomerate or the government more directly. Whats the DoD's interests in getting this technology running I wonder.

because the satellites themselves have no Internet-style routing capabilities, devices which do not have a direct line of site need to communicate via ground stations - introducing a delay - or via a specially designed relay satellite.
Shouldnt that be "line of sight"?

Just a nitpick

why does it seem odd DoD would sponsor it?

if it wasnt for DoD we probably wouldnt have the internet as we know it now, the military is relying more and more on digital information, the quicker they can get that information to where its needed the better

the end of April to being a twelve-month commercial - begin?

Dont see how satelites would solve VC delays, there would be a much higher latency using a satelite than cable routing?

Linksys are horrible, i'm work for an ISP and 90% of our core is cisco, their enterprise stuff is bulletproof, but what do you expect when you're paying 1k + for routers+ switches


Anyway, its an interesting point, as satellite stuff is really delay happy, we use alot of satellites as backups if the main link goes down, they just feel so sluggish even with 2mb+ dedicated bandwidth.

I wonder if this has any security implications, like people intercepting the satellite feed?

I would imagine as more of the world's comms are internet based (yes, even your mobile phone) this will become more and more important. It's not just about getting internet in space, it should also help fill up some of the internet blackspots here on earth. I'm surprised it's taken them so long to think of it.

i for one, welcome our IRIS enabled overloards!

(sorry, had to do it, you did just link to el Reg after all)

Im really looking forward to this going commercial, for half the year i exclusivly use a sat link and at the moment the lag is ok for voice but would be much better with the new kit. Plus our real time monitoring could actually be a bit more "real time"!! one for the marketing boys i think.
