ORBIT to Showcase Newest Maritime VSAT Offerings at Satellite 2012
Tuesday, 13 March 2012 | 00:00
ORBIT Communication Systems, Itd., a provider of mission-critical connectivity solutions in a variety of markets, including satellite communications, tracking and telemetry, and communications management systems, yesterday announced its exciting line-up for Satellite 2012, to be held in Washington, D.C. from March 12-14, 2012. ORBIT's exhibit at Booth #789 will showcase its latest innovations in the maritime VSAT space - the brand new OrSat(TM) 300 and the breakthrough OrBand(TM) system. In addition to the exhibit, ORBIT executives will be featured speakers at two conference sessions.
The newest member of ORBIT's next-generation VSAT portfolio, OrSat(TM) 300 is an inherently flexible maritime stabilized VSAT system tailored for the ever increasing high-speed, two-way broadband communications needs of the maritime market. Designed as "Ka ready" and leveraging its unique stabilization control, OrSat(TM) 300 ensures smooth migration to future Ka services. The 1.15m (45") system, which will be commercially available in the summer of 2012, is built to support a wide range of configurations with different RF packages (Ku or Ka or X) and BUC power levels, and complies with the most stringent environmental standards.
"With its focus on the future of satellite communications technology, Satellite 2012 is the ideal venue to introduce OrSat(TM) 300, the latest innovation in our expanding line of next generation VSAT products. Together with our market-proven OrBand(TM) offering, the new OrSat(TM) 300 strengthens ORBIT's position as a leading provider of maritime stabilized VSAT systems," said Avi Cohen, President and CEO of ORBIT Communication Systems. "Addressing market demand for flexible, future-proof VSAT systems, OrSat(TM) 300 delivers a strong value proposition to maritime customers focused on mission-critical, data-hungry applications."
OrBand(TM), which was released in mid 2011, is a compact C-band maritime VSAT system that was built specifically to overcome the limitations of traditional C-band systems. OrBand is differentiated from competing solutions by its extraordinarily small footprint, outstanding RF performance, strict regulatory and support of multiple optional RF feeds. Backed by EutelSat's standard-M characterization and ANATEL's homologation certificates, the OrBand(TM) features 2.2m/87" dish and a 2.7m/106" radome, which takes up 40% less deck space than industry-standard 2.4m/95" dish and 3.8m/150" radome systems. Small enough to be shipped as a single, fully assembled and tested unit in a standard 20-foot container, and designed for quick and simple single-day installation, vessels can use this system to enjoy broadband satellite communications with full global coverage.
"With close to 100 systems ordered by more than 10 different customers, OrBand(TM) has proved to be a real game-changer in the C-band maritime VSAT market," commented Cohen.
ORBIT offers a diverse portfolio of advanced satellite communications solutions for maritime and land-based applications. ORBIT's systems are installed on over 3,500 marine platforms from naval vessels to cargo ships, ocean liners and oil rigs - enabling TV reception and broadband IP connectivity for always-on applications such as Internet, video, telephony and other applications.
ORBIT will be available to discuss and demonstrate the company's latest VSAT offerings at Booth #789, starting on Monday, March 12th.
