Launched seven years ago, the mini-VSAT broadband network was the first to leverage the capabilities of spread spectrum technology to provide global multi-megabit services to ships at sea with small, powerful antennas.
Providing the opportunity to take full advantage of the VSAT service – namely, speed and economy – by installing only compact and affordable on-board antenna systems, has become a truly winning strategy for mini-VSAT. Therefore, it is not surprising that mini-VSAT Broadband has become a best-seller among marine VSAT services.
Encouraged by this success, KVH has created the next generation of mini-VSAT Broadband Network. Using ACSM technology (adaptive coding, expansion, and modulation), network bandwidth has tripled over the past year. More efficient transmission technology, enhanced satellite throughput and automatic updates for the entire installed base of antenna systems – all these have become the basic principles of a network that Continue reading
In the modern world, it is not surprising that there is satellite HD TV at home, and the selection of antennas is not so intricate: you need to go to the electronics hypermarket, where a ready-made set of equipment with a service package is on the counter.
But what to do if you become the happy owner of a beautiful yacht or a small boat who wants to watch your favorite TV shows away from problems and hassles?
In this article, we will raise the most important questions on the selection of a satellite television antenna, consider the most popular models, and give a general overview of the system configuration.
Satellite TV antenna is a modern, gyroscopically stabilized Continue reading
The article considers all modern models of satellite terminals BGAN from Thrane & Thrane and Hughes.
Time does not stand still, the modern world is changing every second, what yesterday was a breakthrough in science, today is no longer perceived as something amazing. The development of the satellite industry was no exception. In a short time, the direction stepped forward, became more interactive and user-oriented.
Satellite terminals BGAN
Today, the global broadband network in the Inmarsat BGAN system is the first service in the world that simultaneously provides Internet access and the ability to use telephony using a portable terminal. The BGAN service operates on three fourth-generation geostationary satellites Inmarsat I-4. Using these satellites, in direct line of sight, almost the entire planet, with the exception of the polar regions, can be covered by a guaranteed Internet connection.
Despite the small size of the equipment, BGAN satellite terminals have a powerful antenna that allows you Continue reading
