SES Government Solutions and XipLink Team: New Agreement

March 29, 2015

SES Government Solutions (SES GS) has entered into an agreement to deliver advanced acceleration and optimization technology to the U.S. Government. This relationship is critical for existing SkyPipe™ users who will move from the legacy SkyPipe™ environment to the new XipOS system. XipOS provides Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) Acceleration using the Space Communications Protocol Standard (SCPS), byte caching for data de-duplication, link balancing-bonding to virtually increase link capacities with high availability and more bandwidth to support a new generation of High
Throughput Satellites (HTS).

The agreement has several benefits for SES GS and their customers. XipOS is the most
advanced product available for maximizing capacities from small handhelds to HTS. It also
provides a faster user experience with new Fast Start and Byte Caching capabilities. The
XipOS product has been tested and is ideally suited to complement Type 1, Suite B and other
encryption methods.

"XipLink gives us the flexibility we need to deploy acceleration and optimization technology to
the U.S. Government. Their optimization appliances are an ideal fit for the SES GS strategy
to provide mission critical capacity to our Government customers at a lower cost per bit," said
Pete Hoene, President and CEO of SES GS. "We have been working with XipLink as an
organization for many years and are thrilled to formalize this relationship.”

"XipLink provides scalable and fully interoperable solutions across a wide product line
including appliances, virtual machine deployments and single board computer integrations.
By teaming with SES GS, we can offer the government a market-leading TCP accelerator as
well as next-generation Wireless Link Optimization capabilities for Web, UDP and TCP
traffic", reported XipLink CEO Jack Waters. "We have a wonderful long-term relationship with
the SES GS team and look forward to providing a positive impact to their solutions.”
