The main trends in the development of marine satellite dishes

The increase in the volume of data transmitted from ships to shore means for shipowners and managers the need to upgrade satellite communication antennas to more powerful ones. Today, VSAT marine antennas have low power supplies of about eight watts or less in order to maintain their low weight. This is enough to connect the VSAT equipment operating in the transmission mode of the standard downstream ship traffic, but not enough to increase the upstream traffic transmitted from the ship to the satellite.

In order to adapt the equipment to higher data rates on the uplink, antenna manufacturers can install high power supplies, which leads to an increase in the total weight and size of the antennas. However, Cobham Satcom has developed a 20-watt power supply with the same dimensions and weight as the 8-watt one. The device was included in the high-power version of the Cobham Satcom Sailor 900 VSAT equipment. Continue reading

Thuraya Telecoms and WiCis Sports support climbers

Dubai United Arab Emirates, March 30, 2016. Leading mobile satellite operator Thuraya and WiCis Sport have joined forces to support expeditions to the Himalayas. Starting on March 19, a six-month project starts, involving climbers going from Jomsom (Nepal) to Lo Manthang, a high-altitude trek with a subsequent exit to K2 in June.

Thuraya transferred the Thuraya IP +, SatSleeve + and Satsleeve Hotspot satellite terminals to Madison Mountaineering to keep in touch during the expedition. Madison Mountaineering is a mountain guide boutique located in Seattle, Washington. The company specializes in services for climbing expeditions to Continue reading

Providing telephone communications to remote moving objects using VSAT

Providing telephone communications to remote mobile objects is essential for many modern organizations. Despite the systematic increase in coverage of mobile networks of the main operators, there are still quite a lot of areas where there is no communication as such, and the only thing that can really guarantee communication is satellite technology. On the other hand, IP-telephony is increasingly prevailing over analog standards due to its cost, functionality and simpler structure.

One of the distinguishing features of IP-telephony is the use of technologies and data transfer formats using communication protocols standard for Ethernet technology. Such optimization allows, among other things, to reduce the volume of the data stream, and to use at the same time more communication channels. One of these channels, geographically more advantageous, is a satellite communication Continue reading
