Luleå, 2014-04-23 08:25 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Header Compression Sweden Holding AB (publ)

Effnet AB, a subsidiary of HCS Holding AB and the premier provider of header compression software for wireless and fixed networks, today announced that it has licensed its header compression technology to a leading broadband satellite communications company.

It is a challenge to provide voice and data services on the 3G (CDMA2000) air-interface over satellite links. Such links are challenging due to the latency and scarce bandwidth. Header compression technology with a highly efficient software implementation is important for efficient use of satellite resources in such an environment.

“Effnet is proud to add this major satellite communications company as a customer. We have invested in the research of header compression technologies, been involved in the standardization processes and are committed to provide our customers with an interoperable commercial grade software solution,” said Aniruddha Kulkarni, Managing Director, HCS Holding AB and Effnet AB. “This agreement is a result of those efforts and yet another step in broadening our customer base,” he concluded.
