NetPerformer’s family of cell relay access devices integrates data and voice applications onto a single Wide Area Network (WAN). The result: award-winning solutions that transport any service; voice, fax/modem, LAN, and legacy serial data over any network infrastructure, including TDM, IP, Frame Relay, and ATM. We call it the “Power of Convergence”; voice, video, and data on one cost-effective, bandwidth-efficient, and easy-to-manage network. NetPerformer brings the Power of Convergence to even the most remote locations where terrestrial networks are unavailable but integrated voice and data communications are a must.
Supporting end-to-end voice, fax/modem, data, and LAN services on one network, NetPerformer delivers these capabilities over satellite or hybrid satellite/terrestrial infrastructures, forming a single, seamless network that reaches anywhere. Where do you need to go?
Extend Your Reach NetPerformer’s modular expansion capabilities allow your organization to start small and then control growth in-line with your network needs.
- Converged voice/ data services
- E1/ T1 voice trunking
- TDM, Frame Relay, or IP backhaul over satellite
The clear and alternative choice for single/distributed star and partial/full-mesh networks where modern security is an issue, NetPerformer is ideal for small to large-size networks requiring voice and multi-protocol data and LAN support. Whatever topology is right for you, NetPerformer will ensure it runs at peak performance and with unparalleled efficiency!
Point to Multipoint Ideally suited to NetPerformer; Single star topologies are typically used in small to medium size networks and carry a mix of voice and data, with remote locations communicating to a central site.
Mesh Ease of management and fewer bandwidth requirements make NetPerformer the perfect fit for the network that demands full-mesh connectivity – linking all your remote locations via a single satellite hop using SkyPerformer over SCPC technology.
NetPerformer provides a single platform for a combined satellite/terrestrial network, translating to less equipment and less training time. And if terrestrial lines do become available in the service area, a simple software configuration brings NetPerformer back down to earth – allowing you to maintain the same hardware platform and management system on which you have come to trust and depend.

WHETHER YOU NEED TO MANAGE A GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION NETWORK...
Multinational Beverage Maker Links Disparate Locations – From its production and distribution hub in Jakarta, this Fortune 500 Company has finally realized toll-quality voice service and superior data throughput over one, cost-effective network – to even its most remote sites across South East Asia. With future plans for expansion, they’ll be counting on NetPerformer’s combination of satellite and terrestrial support more than ever.
PROVIDE CARRIER-GRADE SERVICES TO THE FARTHEST REACHES OF THE GLOBE...
Troops in Afghanistan Phone Home – When a major European long-distance reseller was tasked to implement an international telecommunication service for the United Nations Peacekeepers in Afghanistan, they needed a network that required minimal infrastructure and, due to the volatile political environment, no on-site support. Their only choice to be able to integrate voice and data services was NetPerformer. In just two months, a comprehensive network was deployed using a creative combination of prepaid long-distance calling cards, and 800 number and both satellite and public networks support. The army gained access to the outside world while being able to operate on the move. For the soldiers calling home, NetPerformer’s optimum bandwidth usage offered affordable and top quality carrier-grade communications with their family and friends
CONNECT TO REMOTE MANUFACTURING OPERATIONS...
American Major Mining Operation Stays in Contact –
Dotted across the rugged Mexican interior, eight remote mining locations stay in constant contact with
one another – above as well as below ground. Their only link with the outside world – a hybrid satellite/ terrestrial Frame Relay network between the U. S. and Mexico became a reality with the deployment of NetPerformer. Where it was impossible before, real-time voice calls and data exchange between miners and management is now handled over one network.
