Dual Matrix is the answer to “what if something goes wrong with the satellite connection?”, be it a line-of-site obstacles from a building or tree, or congestion, or network error, or even the satellite going offline. Ground Control’s Dual Matrix service offers connectivity with a second orbiting satellite at the touch of a button. This fully redundant dual infrastructure solution is ideal for all industries that must maintain the highest of communications standards.
Use of Dual Matrix requires the TS2 Controller with any Toughsat mobile satellite system. Simply press Sat 1 or the Sat 2 button to switch between satellites. The Toughsat dish will automatically search and connect in about one minute with the 2nd satellite without any other user interaction. Existing Toughsat customers may easily upgrade to the TS2 Dual Matrix controller. Please call for special upgrade pricing.
Ground Control's two North American teleports service two different high-performance iDirect satellites that operate independent of each other. With the Dual Matrix Service, a single mobile satellite dish may connect with either of the satellites at any time at the touch of a button, no matter the plan subscribed to.
