The contract period stretches over several years and is formally split into a first phase (basic procurement) and an optional second phase (full operational capability).

TelliNet is an IP traffic acceleration software solution designed to address the drawbacks affecting TCP performance on high latency and high loss networks. TelliNet combines TCP and application acceleration techniques, with bandwidth efficiency mechanisms, comprehensive compression and encryption techniques. These multi-faced factors can be individually combined to provide the maximum bandwidth efficiency, acceleration and security to any application.
