Harris CapRock Communications has launched the a unified, fully managed satellite, wireless and terrestrial connectivity service designed to reduce costs.
 
Harris CapRock One is an intelligent, highly-integrated, end-to-end service that transparently switches between the various transport mediums to optimize communications for customers around the globe, according to the company.

“Harris CapRock is going to drastically change the way our clients experience managed communications services,” said Tracey Haslam, president, Harris CapRock.  “Harris CapRock One is the first commercial service of its kind to unify satellite, wireless and terrestrial connectivity into one platform. Customers want a solution that is flexible and optimizes their operations no matter where they are located, or how mobile their assets are. Harris CapRock One delivers that and more.”

Harris CapRock’s unique service offering combines a multi-band antenna with an Intelligent Communications Director (ICD).

The multi-band antenna allows for C-, Ku- and Ka-band connectivity with no additional moving parts, meaning that any satellite orbiting the Earth can be accessed with no technician intervention required.

The ICD is a geographically aware smartbox that recognizes where the multi-band antenna is around the world and carries a database of the network footprints available. The device is aware of the operator’s traffic and can route traffic intelligently over the most appropriate network path based on speed, latency, location and cost. By optimizing the network traffic, the ICD enhances the end-to-end experience, completing an intelligent routing solution with end-to-end application performance management.
