Satellite 2013: Thanks for joining us!

We had a great turn out at Satellite 2013, and wish to thank all of our customers and visitors for stopping by and giving us valuable feedback. It was great to see you and we value your loyalty and support.  A few highlights from the event include:

  • The announcement of our new partnership with O3b and the unveiling of our first product designed for O3B’s new network.  We had a great response the news of our O3b BUC launch and many of you were surprised and excited to see a COTS product 2 months before service launch.  We were pleased to show the same BUC that will be powering a large maritime deployment in the summer of 2013.
  • The debut demonstration of our newly launched GLOBETrekker 2.0 fly-away satellite terminal.  We were pleased to see that GLOBETrekker was star of the booth, with many military and civilian organizations interested in its portable yet rugged design, easy-to-use interface, and multiple band support. 
  • LinkControl software, which supports most of our satellite terminals, was available to demo alongside GLOBETrekker, and proved to be particularly popular due to its feature rich capabilities and easy to use interface.  LinkControl now includes an automated troubleshooting system; and you can see this system in action, in our brand new video demo.
  • In January this year we launched Sentinel RMC, an M2M solution designed for remote site monitoring and control in the Oil & Gas industry, and Satellite 2013 was our first chance to show off its capabilities.  We are extremely proud of this turnkey solution and very pleased with the positive response from visitors.

Next month we’ll be attending NAB in Las Vegas, so if you missed us at Satellite, make sure you stop by Booth SU3404 at NAB to say hello, or contact us to schedule a meeting.
