I did developed my own accelerator in 2006(globax) and have customers 
till now, but only for one-way ISP's in CIS region, and partially Europe 
(Germany). Sure worked with satellite internet all that years.
But since i am not interested to advertise it here(working only for 
ISPs), i will mention possible alternatives:
There was few solutions, most of them was from Tellinet and Mentat. 
Tellinet are for Newtec now, and Mentat are for Packeteer(and Packeteer 
for Bluecoat). Last time i seen optimization option in Packetshaper from 
Bluecoat. Probably worth to visit Newtec, as i see your domain are .be, 
and their HQ in Belgium.
Riverbed, i heard about them, but never tried. Most of TDMA VSAT modems 
also has embedded accelerators.

Please let me know if you want to know anything else.
