Thrane & Thrane Sailor 700 VSAT
The SALOR 700 VSAT is a total VSAT solution; a concept that has been designed to simplify the procurement, installation and operation of Ku-band satcoms.
Whilst a quiet revolution in the procurement of advanced satcom, SAILOR 700 VSAT is at the same time a sophisticated, high quality hardware solution with inherent reliability and user friendly operations.
It is operated via a simple but powerful web front-end and features automatic beam switching technology where the system will hand-over to the next satellite beam without user intervention.
Naturally, the SAILOR 700 VSAT can be integrated with SAILOR FleetBroadband and SAILOR Fleet solutions to ensure that a vessel can easily utilize the best connection wherever it is in the world.
The SAILOR 700 VSAT takes a novel approach to simplify choosing and installing a VSAT system aboard a commercial vessel, which can be an expensive, time and labour intensive project. It is a straightforward, complete hardware and airtime solution, from a trusted supplier with a truly global distribution and service network.
SAILOR 700 VSAT makes the whole process of dealing with VSAT infinitely easier. It simplifies the procurement of advanced satcoms, whilst at the same time is a sophisticated, high quality hardware solution with inherent reliability and user friendly operation.
Benefits range from reliable technology and easy installation through to lower costs and improved crew welfare:
• A Total Solution from one single supplier
• Cost effective hardware, installation, maintenance
• Airtime from the same hardware dealer
• Maximum international multi-region VSAT coverage
• Smaller and lighter than most common Ku-band VSAT antennas
• True broadband speeds at sea with fixed costs
• High quality and reliable simultaneous voice
• Affordable crew welfare for web acces as well as call service
At just 70 cm, the SAILOR 700 VSAT antenna is smaller than the most common Ku-band VSAT antennae – by 85% in volume and75% in weight (27kgs compared to up to 120kgs). This simple fact enables it to be a more cost-effective installation proposition whilst still providing lightning fast broadband internet, with data rates up to 2 Mbps shore-to-ship and 512 Kbps ship-to-shore.
The SAILOR 700 VSAT can be integrated with SAILOR FleetBroadband and Fleet solutions to ensure that a vessel can easily utilise the best connection wherever it is in the world. It is operated via a state-of-the-art web front-end and features automatic beam switching technology where the system will hand-over to the next satellite beam without user intervention. The small antenna which enables the simple installation also offers fully stabilized tracking and at the same time the rugged below deck hardware is easy to integrate to shipboard networks.
A total VSAT solution
The high technology behind the SAILOR 700 VSAT enables a wealth of real world benefits. The foundation for this is the small, lightweight antenna, which enables a significant reduction in hardware and installation costs, without compromising performance. However, by offering uniform airtime through a global network of dealers, the SAILOR 700 VSAT becomes the first true VSAT solution for commercial vessels.
