Onboard Router – Wi-Fi Hotspot
All TS2 controllers have integrated wireless routers to create a wired or wireless LAN. Smartphone and tables can make and receive texts and with a 100-foot connectivity radius, wiring to equipment is optional. High security includes SPI firewall, MAC address filtering, WPA, and WPA2 security with 128bit encryption. Operation is transparent. Once the ‘Deploy’ button on the TS2 is pressed, the Wi-Fi hotspot will self-enable. No other operation is needed, except pressing the ‘Stow’ button when you’re ready to move.
Be it a line-of-site obstacle from a building or tree, congestion, a 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 second satellite without any other user interaction. Existing Toughsat customers may easily upgrade to the TS2 Dual Matrix controller. Please call for special upgrade pricing.
