  • 1. Orlando Moreno omoreno@hotmail.com 408.656.2498
  • 2. UNDERSTANDING VSAT 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 2
  • 3. • Geostationary Satellites are Located 22,300 Miles (35,786 km) above the Earth’s Equator • Operates on “line of sight” basis • “Latency” Due to Round Trip Distance to Satellite – Approximately 500 Millisecond Roundtrip – Impacts Internet page loading, voice call experience and fax transmissions • C-Band: Global Beam, Wide Coverage – Requires 2.4-meter antenna minimum – Circular and Linear Polarizations • Ku-Band: Regional, Limited Coverage – Requires 1.0-meter antenna minimum • Coverage Area Is Described as a “Footprint” – AOR, POR, IOR – Regional, Spot, Hemi or Global Beams 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 3
  • 4. • C-Band: Electromagnetic or Terrestrial Microwave Interference • Ku-Band: “Rain Fade” in Extreme Weather – Effects can be mitigated by higher power amplifiers from ship and increased satellite power • Military RF Interference • Physical Blockage – Buildings, Fjords or Ship Superstructure • Terrestrial Outages • Satellite Issues – Solar Activity or Spacecraft Malfunction • Ocean Currents should not affect performance due to stabilized antenna design 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 4
  • 5. • Always on, always available, unlimited use • Fixed vs. variable costs – No unpredictable “pay by the minute or megabyte” costs • 21st Century Requirements – Internet access is part of life; it does not need to be costly or used sparingly – Extend data networks to become “floating offices” – Limit unnecessary travel to ships – Reporting requirements are increasing – Remote monitoring – Vessel tracking – Crew retention and welfare services 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 5
  • 6. • Passenger Ships • Offshore Oil & Gas • Government Systems • Private Yachts • Shipping Fleets 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 6
  • 7. Inmarsat VSAT Inmarsat satellite cover 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 7
  • 8. • Predictable, Fixed Monthly Fees for Unlimited “Always On” Communications • Fully-Managed Turnkey Solution includes: • Shipboard and Shore-side Equipment • Assembly, Integration and Testing (AIT) • Installation, Technical Service and Spare Parts • Worldwide Satellite Coverage • Global Terrestrial Network & Teleport Services • Internet Backbone Access • Common IP Addresses and Phone Numbers seamlessly integrated across the network • PSTN Call Termination with US or International Dial Tone Options • 24x7 Monitor and Control and Remote Diagnostics • Web-Based Customer Portal 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 8
  • 9. Our customers always receive: • Committed Information Rate with “Burstability” • CIR establishes bandwidth “floor” • MIR establishes bandwidth “ceiling” – We do not “oversubscribe” our network – We do not sell your bandwidth to multiple other customers and hope that everyone will not use it at the same time – We do not offer a “best efforts” or “contended” network in which customers must compete with one another for capacity – Your user experience will not degrade over time – Burst pools are comprised of unused bandwidth on our network and satellite inventory 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 9
  • 10. Ku-Band C-Band 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 10
  • 11. • SeaTel/Cobham • Orbit • KNS/Azimuth • Intellian • Schlumberger • Thrane & Thrane • KVH • Sea-King • SatPoint • NaviSystems 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 11
  • 12. • Ku-Band is outpacing demand for C-Band – Largely due to cost and size • Smaller and lighter Ku antennas – 1.5m, 1.2m, 1.15m, 1.0m, 85cm, 60cm • Multi-band LNBs (Low Noise Block) – No mechanical intervention required for vessels transitioning between satellites • Maritime-specific satellite beams – New launches in 2009 will greatly expand coverage • Automatic Beam Switching – Less intervention from shipboard personnel 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 12
  • 13. • Multi-frequency solutions – Primary VSAT coupled with FBB or Iridium OpenPort or Becker Marine’s PortNet • Strong desire for crew welfare services that are partially subsidized by company – Internet – Voice – Pre-paid SIM cellular • Greater standardization and ease of integration – VSAT installations become “cookie cutter” • Training – Shipboard and shore-side personnel – Video-based training modules 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 13
  • 14. • New VSAT equipment manufacturers create challenges for VSAT service providers • Supply chain – How many antennas are available? – Where are they? • Spare parts – Spares must be immediately available • Training – Are technicians and engineers confident in their ability to install, troubleshoot and repair? • Type approval – Is the antenna compliant? • Impetus to change – Is it really a better mousetrap? 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 14
  • 15. • DVB-S2 – Outbound data rates up to 140Mbps – More efficient, lower cost, higher burstability • ACM (Adaptive Coding and Modulation) – Dynamic FEC (Forward Error Correction) helps maintain a reliable link as conditions change – Network can operate at peak efficiency • Link Budgets no longer based on a lowest common denominator • Rate tables possible for different sized antennas • Automatic Beam Switching – Automatically handles cutovers between satellites – Improving logic with knowledge of network load balance • Parallel SatManage – Granular bandwidth reports (by application, protocol, IP address, etc) 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 15
  • 16. • Riverbed (optional) – Data compression and optimization – Improves throughput and user experience • ShipTracker Web Portal – Real-time vessel position and performance information – Historical performance and bandwidth utilization statistics • Dual-Antennas (optional) – Dual C, KU or C/KU configurations available – Antennas can “look” at different satellites – Failover is automatic 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 16
