Two-way communication for global reach and connectivity

Telecommunications are all around us – no longer is it limited to just phone and fax services. Today, telecommunications are relied upon by billions each day for reliable, high-speed internet data transfer, real-time video streaming from remote locations around the world. In fact, revenue in telecommunications is projected to amount to over $146bn in 2022.

The expansion of 5G and Wi-Fi 6 networks will offer greater connectivity in areas that have previously been difficult to reach, but remote sites will still be prevalent and lie beyond the reach of even these enhanced cellular and fiber networks. Over 2000 artificial satellites facilitate satellite communication and telecommunication services when users are out of reach of cellular and fiber networks – providing truly global reach.


RockBLOCK Plus

Satellite transceivers like the RockBLOCK Plus are a great example of how IoT applications can be used to protect lives. For example, the RockBLOCK Plus can be used to monitor specific warning indicators, such as rising flood water levels. When paired with a sophisticated monitoring system, the RockBLOCK can also trigger an alarm if and when warning indicator data exceeds appropriate parameters, ensuring safe evacuation from flood risk areas.


With satellite phones, you can guarantee that maintenance, and remote installation teams are able to remain in contact, at all times. Personal tracking devices like the RockSTAR deliver peace of mind. With location updates, up to every 15 seconds, the device enables field technicians to remain connected with their base of operations for their safety, to complete tasks and submit reports, and for their well-being.


RockREMOTE delivers a reliable and flexible, all IP-based, dual-mode LTE-Satellite communications solution for fixed, semi-fixed or mobile M2M / IoT applications worldwide. Highly adaptable, RockREMOTE guarantees maximum uptime, robust communication and provides the vital link to ensure that data keeps flowing when the grid stops.


SCADASat is designed to meet the demanding data communication and security requirements of the SCADA and utility industries. SCADASat provides a private satellite network operating a direct data communication channel between a process control center and remote locations making it highly secure. Compatible with both IP and legacy serial devices, it complements and offers an alternative solution to terrestrial networks, ensuring connectivity at all times.

Iridium Push-To-Talk

Iridium Push To Talk handsets are a cost-effective wireless way for agencies to use satellite services to immediately communicate one-to-one or in talk groups with live, two-way communication. The flexible Command Center allows agencies to interoperate with other agencies as well as adjust geographical Talk Group regions to allow for out of the area participation.


The MCD-4800 ("The Football"), is an auto-pointing BGAN satellite terminal with global reach. The weatherproof case can be placed on the ground, on a boat deck, or on any surface with a clear view of the sky, and within a minute the MCD-4800 becomes a powerful mobile internet device, with reliable internet connectivity and accessible by any wireless device within a 100 meter range, for up to 5 hours on internal battery power.

Expand coverage with truly global reach, two-way digital communication and end-to-end solutions

Enhanced remote team connectivity

The number of people who work from home has increased a 115% since 2005 according to Global Workplace Analytics. Satellite connectivity enables monitoring, tracking and control of remote sites and the remote workers operating at those sites. Without digital communication solutions, many remote sites would become inefficient and ineffective to operate.

Enhanced global tracking logistics

The development of IoT and M2M has enabled businesses to go beyond the basics of GPS location asset tracking. Remote tracking now provides end-to-end in-transit visibility including exposure to shock, light or heightened temperatures or humidity, for advanced freight and logistics handling and efficient transportation services across the world.

Critical security peace of mind

From a security perspective, telecommunication is one of the most crucial infrastructures for protection against cyber-attack. From highly confidential remote monitoring applications to classified military operations, there are a number of scenarios that rely on digital communication solutions to deliver robust cyber security, and overall personnel safety.
