New modem for UltraVSAT

LinkScape is to launch its next generation UltraVSAT platform, powered by a new modem – the Eagle Ultra.

The company says that the new modem contains an intelligent platform that controls the antenna system using only the self-contained 1U appliance, with integrated power supplies, modem, and antenna controller (ACU/DAC).

The Eagle Ultra can also manage other secondary internet connections, such as a FleetBroadband or Wi-Fi, through the same interface with no additional hardware.

A complete installation requires just two cables from the modem to the antenna. UltraVSAT antenna systems are available from 75cm in size, though the Eagle Ultra also provides compatibility with existing legacy SeaTel and Intellian antenna installations.

“Linkscape's UltraVSAT technology was designed and built specifically for the maritime market,” said David Horacek, sales director at LinkScape.

“Eagle Ultra's industry exclusive intuitive user interfaces make it easy to use, switch satellites, and manage traffic. Transitioning between coverage is 'hands off' and, if ever blocked, it is a simple 'point and click' interface to switch to another satellite.”

“With other providers, you have to contact their support centre and then change the configuration and settings yourself if the vessel has gone beyond the satellite. It's a time consuming and difficult technical process that can leave you without any connection for long periods of time.”
