Ground Control offers unshared dedicated data channels over satellite link to the Internet backbone through both of our North American Teleports. These unshared full-speed channels are perfect for reliable streaming of video or other large data transmissions over satellite from any location in North America. Since the satellite channel is unshared, speeds are predictable and packet loss and drop-outs are mitigated. Best of all, there is no overhead cost, which means if you purchase 4Mbps, you will see 4Mbps speeds*. Finally, if you have multiple satellite systems at different locations, you can place any or all of them on the same CIR On-Demand network at no additional cost (great for multi-camera solutions).
