In today’s connected world, email is a vital form of communication. The world revolves around electronic communication so in order to ensure the quality, efficiency and safety of your business and your people, you need reliable access to email even when operating outside of terrestrial communications infrastructure.
For business or leisure, our satellite terminals enable efficient and cost effective email. Because Thrane & Thrane systems are designed and built for the exact environments they are used in, you can be confident that wherever you are – on land, at sea or in the air – you can send and receive email at the touch of a button.
Satellite connectivity for land, sea and air
As we are getting closer and closer to a truly connected world, we expect to have internet access at home, at work and out and about. But because the internet is dependent on communication infrastructure there are some places where internet connectivity isn’t as easy to find – at sea, in the air or on land in remote locations for instance.
This is why we make satellite communications systems. We are able to deliver internet connectivity to practically anywhere on the world. From vessels sailing global trading routes and aircraft passengers and pilots, to government officials or engineers working in third world countries, our products are playing an important role in bringing us even closer to the truly connected world.
Get the message out Alongside EXPLORER’s internet connectivity, email, voice communication, fax and VPN, SMS – or text messaging as it’s more commonly known – is also available when out of terrestrial and cell phone coverage through the use of satellite communication. Although SMS is not a primary business or industry communication method, it does have its place for use by professionals and is also used in remote monitoring and maintenance systems, so is a facility requested by several market segments.
Being able to send a text message via satellite from the deepest depths of the jungle, the middle of the desert or any remote area enables business travelers and field engineers to keep in touch using a cost-effective alternative to traditional SMS, when a call is not needed and there is no time for an email.
Satellite communications are often used as part of a SCADA system located in remote areas. These systems can be controlled and monitored by SMS, providing a simple and cost-effective way for engineers to interact with complex systems remotely.
Off the beaten track
The ability to track an asset and get a position anywhere on the planet has opened up a wealth of applications in business, industry and transport. From safety solutions and regulatory requirements to logistics and motor-racing, satellite tracking of vehicles, aircraft, vessels and people is now part of our daily lives.
Because so many critical systems depend on tracking capabilities to enhance safety and efficiency, it’s vital that the equipment for transmitting data is designed to be highly reliable. Choosing one of our satellite terminals ensures your ability to transmit your position from land, sea and air, so you can ensure safety, meet requirements and enhance operational efficiency regardless of conditions.
Voice over Satellite
Communicate even when out of cell phone coverage
With the massive explosion in cell coverage throughout the past two decades we take it for granted that we can make a call wherever we are. However, if you pick up your cell phone to make a call at sea, at 30,000 ft. in the air or in the jungle or desert, it’s not such a simple story.
Luckily, voice calling on satellites has become very high quality and competitively priced. So even when out of terrestrial or cell coverage, you can make a call from almost anywhere on the planet. If you’re on land its simple to call from even the remotest spot using EXPLORER whilst making a call at sea is easy with SAILOR and even in the air, you can call colleagues and customers using AVIATOR, just as if you were sitting in the office.
Work in your own systems remotely To work efficiently away from headquarters you need access to your organisation’s critical systems, so facility for secure and reliable VPN is a pre-requisite of satellite communications systems. Our entire portfolio of EXPLORER, SAILOR and AVIATOR systems are designed to facilitate access to corporate networks so getting access to your management, technical or CRM systems is just as easy in the field, at sea or in the air as it is when sat at your desk back at HQ.
