Avantis high-capacity Ka-spectrum satellites provide fixed beams covering the EMEA region and steerable beams spanning from the Americas to Asia.
Broadband satellite operator Avanti Communications has been accredited with Ultras range of advanced man-portable and flyaway satellite terminals, which are designed to meet the demands of secure government and military SATCOM.
Avantis high-capacity Ka-spectrum satellites provide fixed beams covering the EMEA region and steerable beams spanning from the Americas to Asia. Merging this capability with Ultras range of terminals, specially designed to operate in the harshest environments, means that end users will have continuous access to reliable communications regardless of where they are operating.
Using Avantis high throughput beams, trials across Ultras line of terminals showed throughputs in excess of 150Mbps in the Forward and Return routes. This capability means government customers now have the ability to provide headquarters-levels of capacity through a terminal that can fit on their back. The efficiency of these terminals, coupled with the high capacity of Avantis high throughput steerable beams, will allow government customers to deploy multiple terminals operating simultaneously on one of Avantis steerable beams – all delivering in excess of 100Mbps per terminal.
Commenting on the development, Donald Walker, Director of Government Sales at Avanti Communications, said: Avantis high throughput satellites deliver high levels of capacity making them ideally suited to maximise the benefit of small terminals. Utilising Ultras ULV-45, MicroVSat and Fa100 terminals, users can achieve connectivity levels far in excess of that available on conventional satellite networks. Were delighted that together we can deliver the capacity and reliability that early entry forces and first responders need.
