Rapid Deploy Skid mounted VSAT solution - Hermes Datacomms

Connect is a skid-mounted system which delivers rapid deployment and offers high-availability connections in a portable package, with the added benefits of lower deployment costs and reduced bandwidth costs.

The unit is totally self-contained, with no requirement for a separate indoor unit, and with local wireless access built in as well as optional data cable connection points. All you need to do is connect the power supply and activate the unit. It will automatically deploy, lock to the satellite and connect to the internet and/or private voice and data networks as required within 5 minutes. When you are ready to move, turn it off. Once it has stowed, disconnect the power and move the unit.

The unit is supported 24/7 by our NOC, with spares held at key locations. For even higher reliability SpeedCast can provide out-of-band management.
