SDN Global and End II End Communications have formed a partnership through which the companies will offer virtual private network services through satellite networks.

The companies say VPNs have not been available through satellite connections before.

SDN Global is a provider of satellite services. End II End Communications provides secure wireless enterprise networking solutions.

“End II End’s network software solution adds tremendous value to our core satellite service offerings,” said Larry Jones, president and chief executive officer of SDN Global, in a statement.

Added John Dwyer, CEO of End II End: “SDN’s broadband satellite technology provides a remarkable foundation on which to build powerful networking solutions to difficult business problems. Deployment of our products and services together brings reliable, secure and cost effective network services to market sectors lacking those tools today.”

Both companies are based in Charlotte.
