SIRM VSAT – Coverage Areas
VSAT SIRM solutions can be offered with regional coverage (in KU or KA bands) or global coverage (in KU bands). SIRM, thanks to collaborations with the main operators in the sector, is able to offer one of the most extensive global covers with overlapping satellite beams in every area (4 in Europe), offering a more efficient service and able to overcome the problems of “blockage” of the antenna.
Thanks to its network of partners, SIRM is able to offer a VSAT KU solution with global coverage, able to serve the main navigation routes. The solution allows an automatic switch between the different coverages, with integrated management by NOC SIRM and its partners. The service offer is completed by the ability to offer onboard technical support at a global level, reducing to a minimum the intervention time to resolve any anomalies.
Thanks to its partnership with Telenor, SIRM is also able to offer the new KA regional solution via the Thor7 satellite. THOR 7 offers a truly broadband solution for the maritime sector with pan-European coverage of the North Sea and Baltic, Mediterranean and Red Sea areas and an unprecedented ability to offer mobile services. The solution is supported by iDirect next generation Velocity© platform, Telenor Satellite capable of offering automatic and seamless handover between satellite spot-beams, ensuring continuous connectivity throughout the satellite’s coverage area. The proposed solution allows access to the service with small antennas (50/60 cm) with service capacity up to 24Mbps in download and 6Mbps in upload. KA-band solutions are ideal for allowing internet access to both commercial and passenger vessels as well as to yachts and fishing boats.
