Base3, Bridge Broadband sign licensing deal for GuardianBox

Italian IT service provider Base3 has licensed the innovative GuardianBox from Bridge Broadband Services for distribution in Italy and in Southern Europe, the firm said in a statement.
The product is known as a premier management solution for Internet connections via satellite link.

Initial forecasts suggested a demand of up to 400 systems by the end of 2007, which would be worth around 500,000 pounds to Bridge Broadband Services, Base3 said.

Potential for further growth exists both in a rapidly growing domestic market for broadband connectivity in remote rural locations and through potential expansion into other European territories.
Base3, which has a specialist satellite services division known as Satlink, is best known for a wide range of satellite solutions for banks, corporate customers and government establishments offering global coverage through a range of satellite operators from its headquarters in Trente and Milan-based ground station.
