Maritime VSAT – Broadband at Sea

Digital Satellites offers a High Speed internet service with excellent NOC and on-board support. Unique about our Maritime Ku-band and Thor-7 Ka-band service is that it comes with our Voyager Platform services providing insight in, and control over, which applications use the Maritime internet services. Our VSAT internet provides optimization of vessel operations, enhancement of crew welfare, and boosted safety on board.

Global Maritime Ku-band VSAT

Digital Satellites offers flexible and scalable Ku-band VSAT service packages based on our own VSAT network and infrastructure. Our Global Ku-band Service require minimal 83cm antenna whereas are regional services are serving also 60cm antennas.

In key shipping areas we provide coverage using multiple satellites providing alternative line-of-sight options for vessels with single antenna set-ups.

We truly guarantee minimum user throughput speeds 100% and differentiate ourselves in providing high burst speeds.

Digital Satellites Ku-band plans are available from 512/128 kbps up to 20/5 Mbps.

Inmarsat BGAN

BGAN Link is a leading satellite communications solution for fixed site internet service in remote locations, providing users with high volumes of standard IP data for all their business and personal connectivity. Bringing benefits such as speeds of up to half a megabit for business applications such as email, internet, and corporate VPN access, organisations can efficiently operate remote offices yet avoid bill shock with a fixed monthly fee.

Following recent success in the field, Inmarsat has announced some exciting changes to plans available on BGAN Link, as well as the geographies where the value proposition is available.



BGAN Link Back-Up Plans

We are delighted to announce the introduction of BGAN Link Back-Up plans, which offer the ideal back-up solution for fixed site VSAT service including Inmarsat Global Xpress when it launches later this year. From 1st April 2016, Digital Satellites will be offering BGAN Link Back-Up plans with a tiered pricing structure making the solution an ideal choice for a variety of users with different requirements. The new plans will feature a low base subscription charge each month, with additional charges based on ‘actual’ usage ranging from 20 MB up to 30 GB. This flexible structure means that Digital Satellites customers will not have to commit to large data bundles that may go unused each month should they not require back-up or emergency communications.

Point to Point

Digital Satellites® Dedicated Bandwidth Connectivity Single Channel Per Carrier (SCPC) circuits are designed to establish communication channels between two points on Earth – at guaranteed committed information rates.

The key features of Digital Satellites® SCPC circuits are:

  • High performance service and skilled 24/7 technical support
  • In addition to Ethernet, Digital Satellites® SCPC VSAT terminals support G.703 interfaces (T1, E1, T3 and E3), EIA-422, EIA-232, HSSI (Serial LVDS) and V.35.
  • Data rates from 64 kbit/s and up to full transponder
  • Support for optional redundancy switches
  • High order modulations and efficient TPC or LDPC FEC
  • iSCPC – integrated CIR service with a choice of full QoS support, TCP acceleration, IP router and low cost of terminal equipment
  • Digital Satellites® Sentinel and PEP bandwidth optimization solutions

Along with satellite telecommunication services, Digital Satellites provides network planning and consultancy with complete end-to-end VSAT installation, implementation and post-sales maintenance and support in many countries worldwide.

Satellite Networking Solutions – iDirect

Optimized and Cost Effective Voice Calling Over Satellite

Satellite Networking Options
Standard Shared Services
Our standard shared service to the Internet uses a Star Topology TDM/MF-TDMA iDirect optimized network. Our standard services are global and have contention ratios below 20:1 .

Dedicated SCPC Unlimited Channels

Digital Satellite’s Single Channel Per Carrier (SCPC) service offers a true UN-shared dedicated channel of up to 20 Mbps download by 7 Mbps upload. This service provides full speed connectivity at all times with absolutely no restrictions.

Hybrid Satellite Connections – Shared & Dedicated

A popular networking option that can cut the costs of an expensive high-speed dedicated SCPC channel is to combine a high-speed low-cost shared service (for normal Internet traffic), with a low-speed dedicated SCPC UN-shared channel for high-security data.

Leased-Line, MPLS Provisioning

A Leased-Line is an open UN-shared terrestrial channel between our satellite teleport and your organization’s primary network that does not touch the public network. A Leased-Line can be used for dedicated SCPC service, standard shared Internet service, or hybrid service. Clients often use a Leased-Line for increased security, as well as improve reliability and performance since the channel is open with no restrictions. A leased-line cost is dependent on many factors, but a high-cost would be $1000 per month to most locations in the U.S. for a 1.5 Mbps line. MPLS routing is also available.

Point-to-Point Private Satellite Networking

A Point-to-Point network consists of a satellite dish at one location connecting with a satellite dish (or dishes) at other locations that communicate through our satellite teleport. This topology avoids any terrestrial link costs (such as a leased-line from an organization’s network to our teleport) making it viable low-cost private satellite network. While Point-to-Point avoids touching the public network, it will double the latency because data is required to travel twice to the orbiting satellite (i.e., Point 1 to satellite to NOC Teleport to satellite to point 2… as opposed to Point 1 to satellite to NOC Teleport to Point 2. Some satellites do have the ability to perform routing in space independent of the NOC, in which case, the latency would not be doubled). 

VPN Over Satellite

Many organizations choose to run a VPN over our standard shared iDirect service. However, not all VPN equipment will work well with the inherent latency of satellite, and we recommend speaking with our sales engineers to determine your VPN compatibility over satellite. Ground Control’s network does have very low latency (500 to 650 milliseconds), and the bit error rate is better than 10-9, which is defined as a clear channel.

Equipment Co-Location At Teleport

Many of our clients employ VPN’s or specialty applications running on their hardware co-located at our several teleports throughout the world. Locating a VPN at the teleport can increase performance since VPN traffic does not travel over the satellite leg portion of the link. All of our co-location facilities are hardened, environmentally controlled, and fully protected against fires and other disasters. Below is information on our North American teleport in Napa California.

Service Portal – Free for all Digital Satellites Subscribers

From any connected browser, track usage of all owned VSAT equipment in the field with detailed reports on status, bandwidth usage, modem settings, current activity, current mapped location, communication errors, connection quality graph, power level graph, usage, signal quality, and many other items. This service is offered at no charge for Ground Control subscribers.
