SKU: tsat-3500

The TSAT satellite system is specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of the SCADA and utility industries. TSAT provides a private satellite network operating a direct communication channel between a process control centre and remote locations.

Client Owned Satellite Network For Critical Telemetry

By locating a private TSAT3500 HUB at a control centre, complete independence of any public infrastructure is obtained, and secure and reliable communication is assured. Reliability can be enhanced further with implementation of the load-sharing redundant HUB option.

TSAT’s highly unique private satellite network solution features an industry leading mini VSAT hub that is specifically engineered to support mission critical applications (SCADA / Telemetry) in the energy and utility markets. The ruggedized and utility hardened-hardware is designed to provide years of reliable operation in remote locations and harsh environments.

The TSAT 3500 comes in three variants: a desktop version, 1u rack mounted, and an outdoor option.


Low Capital Investment and Scalability

The TSAT 3500 solution is the lowest cost for establishing a private satellite network designed for SCADA and M2M telemetry, making it suitable for even small single-site installations. There will be room to grow to any size over time on the initial equipment.

TSAT uses spectrum and bandwidth resources efficiently, so that recurring costs are minimized. The total cost of ownership (TCO) of the TSAT 3500 is low, making this a viable option even for single-site installations, with the ability to scale up as needed.

Cyber Security

TSAT complies with IEC 61850 standards and AES-256 encryption and authentication. Further, it’s isolated from the Internet or any other network. A TSAT 3500 satellite network rides over a dedicated space-segment of one or more satellites for redundant fail-over reliability, including remote-site to remote-site (point-to-point) mesh type communication.

Cyber security features include: VLAN (Virtual LAN) support, file system encryption, secure Linux login to avoid unauthorised access, and SW/FW upgrade over-satellite authentication.

Windows based Graphical User Interfaces allow for easy network administration and diagnostic tools for SCADA and M2M telemetry.
