Global Foxcom’s new fully integrated Maritime VSAT solution provides for the first time ever a cost effective alternative to coax cable deployments. Harnessing the superior performance of fiber optic cable, the Sat-Light Maritime solution meets the special needs of Maritime service providers and integrators around the globe.
The Sat-Light Maritime solution is compact and flexible, making it an ideal solution for both new and retrofit applications. The kit consists of the 4000 series outdoor unit (ODU), which is installed in the radome, and the 7000 series chassis and power supply below deck. The Maritime fiber solution provides bi-directional L-band transport and a 10MHz reference signal needed for the BUC. Two bi-directional RS422 ports allow the below desk equipment to control the antenna.
The ODU is an IP67 rated enclosure with a special conformal coating added to the internal components. This special coating adds to the durability of the unit by provided extra protection from humidity and salt corrosion.
Ships, yachts, oil rigs and other marine facilities deploying Global Foxcom’s maritime solution, can now enjoy the many benefits that optical fiber has to offer, such as improved signal quality, lightning protection, safety, compatibility and ease of installation.
