grown to 20 staff and provides services to government/homeland security,
enterprise, small and medium businesses and mobile/transportable.

|OptiStreams have come up with a new satellite access gateway

Off the shelf or complicated software solutions simply increase the likelihood for conflicts or frustration for users who wish to network 2, 5 or 10 users to their satellite signal. Furthermore, not everyone enjoys "PC based" solutions as found with many offerings. BETI™ makes the whole process easier with its simple, automated install wizard and streamlined features.
The BETI™ satellite gateway is compatible with both consumer and business edition DIRECWAY 4000 series. It is self-installable and has a user-friendly interface. Wireless versions are also available.
