The mini-VSAT Broadband service will be used to transmit data from a mobile platform that will house surveillance radar and other sensors for homeland security initiatives. "The TracPhone V7-IP is perfect for the ULAD platform because it offers outstanding performance in on-the-move and on-the-halt applications, transmitting data with the agility needed to support any number of operational scenarios," says
TracPhone V7-IP is a compact, rugged solution featuring an antenna that is approximately 24 inches (60 cm) in diameter, with uploads as fast as 1 Mbps and downloads as fast as 2 Mbps. Spread spectrum technology enables the system to deliver VSAT service using antennas that are 85% smaller and lighter than competing solutions. TracPhone V7-IP's Integrated CommBoxTM Modem (ICM) controls the one-to-one connectivity of the mini-VSAT Broadband service, including fast, low latency data connections and exceptionally high-quality VoIP phone service. The ICM also provides network management functionality that includes such services as email management, transmission optimization, and assured file delivery, key elements for mission-critical data transmissions.
