FleetBroadband Service Provided by Ground Control

Ground Control offers several ways to control security over your FleetBroadband network connection.

1. Firewall Controls, custom made for each FleetBroadband account.
2. IPSec VPN over the Internet from HQ to the Inmarsat NOC.
3. Private FleetBroadband Network via a leased line from HQ to the Inmarsat NOC.
4. ISDN Private line, an alternative to leased line private networking.

FleetBroadband Secure Network

FleetBroadband Firewall Controls
Included with all Ground Control FleetBroadband Subscriptions. $0 setup and $0 per month
Firewall rules can be set up in minutes to limit what a FleetBroadband terminal communicates with on the Internet. Unwanted traffic from any connect computer (such as Windows Update) is blocked from transmitting over the satellite network, as well as blocking malicious traffic from the Internet. Firewall rules can save hundreds if not thousands of dollars in service costs. Comprehensive whitelists and blacklists can be created for individual FleetBroadband accounts and there is no additional cost for setting up this service with Ground Control.
FleetBroadband Firewall Control Information

$595 setup and $69 per month
Our FleetBroadband VPN solution functions by means of a secure interconnection between your central network hub and the Inmarsat NOC (Network Operation Center) closest to your location. There are two benefits to this scenario, (1), since the VPN terminates at the NOC, speeds will not see a performance drop over the satellite network, which is a common problem with VPN over satellite. ...and (2), there is no need to configure individual remote equipment with VPN equipment or software since the VPN terminates at the NOC. All FleetBroadband traffic is routed at the NOC through the VPN portal to your HQ.

A Private FleetBroadband Network
Please call for pricing
Ground Control can establish a leased line or MPLS connection from the NOC to your HQ. In the latter case, Ground Control can save you the hassle of arranging international connections. Any solution can be discussed, and applications are integrated by a FleetBroadband IT engineering team, to ensure that if you are developing a worldwide network, we will offer you the best and most cost effective solution.

ISDN Private Line
Please call for pricing
Much like a leased line, Ground Control can establish the same connection via a standard ISDN 64Kbps line, which can save on monthly data line expense to the NOC. While slower than a leased line solution, ISDN speeds are consistent because the data line is not shared.

Helping You Choose
To facilitate the process of determining which connectivity solution best fits your organization and existing network, Ground Control has a number of specialized ICT experts available as consultants. These specialists are knowledgeable in satellite as well as IT and IP technologies and are equipped to explain the options available for your specific needs.
