Dedicated Unlimited Networking Solutions

Dedicated SCPC Services

Ground Control’s SCPC Service (single channel per carrier) offers a true unshared dedicated channel with absolutely no restrictions. Sample circuit speeds are listed below.

Contact us for pricing and minimum hardware for your specific data rate requirements.



Dedicated SCPC iDirect Satellite Service on Galaxy 18 or SES-2

  • All dedicated plans listed are full-speed unshared data channels with no contention, or use limits.
  • Client sites may require a link budget analysis to determine equipment requirements (dish size, BUC).
  • Dedicated SPCP plans are purchased on a minimum one year term.
  • Dedicated plans have no restrictions on use.

Leased Line Provisioning

A leased line is often used by our SCPC customers. It’s an open unshared terrestrial channel between our satellite teleport and your organization’s primary network that doesn’t touch the public network. A leased line can be used for dedicated SCPC service, standard shared internet service, or hybrid service. Clients often use a leased line for increased security and to improve reliability and performance since the channel is open with no restrictions. Their cost depends on many factors, but a ‘high’ cost for a 1.5 Mbps data channel would be $1000 per month to most locations in the United States.

Standard Shared Services

Our standard shared service to the internet uses a star topology TDM/MF-TDMA iDirect optimized network. Our standard services are global and have dynamic contention ratios for superior speed performance. Use our global map to locate service plans in any region.

Hybrid Satellite Connections - Shared and Dedicated

A popular networking option that can cut the cost of an expensive high-speed dedicated SCPC channel is to combine a high-speed, low-cost shared service (for normal internet traffic) with a low-speed dedicated SCPC unshared channel for high-security data.

Point-to-Point Private Satellite Networking

A point-to-point network consists of a satellite dish at one location connecting with a satellite dish (or dishes) at other locations that communicate through our satellite teleport. This topology avoids any terrestrial link costs (such as a leased line from an organization’s network to our teleport) making it a viable, low-cost private satellite network. While point-to-point avoids touching the public network, it will double the latency because data is required to travel twice to the orbiting satellite.

VPN Over Satellite

Many organizations choose to run a VPN over our standard shared iDirect service. However, not all VPN equipment will work well with the inherent latency of satellite. We recommend speaking with our sales engineers to determine your VPN compatibility.

Equipment Co-Location at Teleport

Many of our clients employ VPNs or specialty applications running on their hardware co-located at our teleports found around the world. Locating a VPN router at the teleport can increase performance, since VPN traffic doesn’t travel over the satellite leg portion of the link. All of our co-location facilities are hardened, environmentally controlled, and fully protected against fires and other disasters. Below is information on our North American teleport in Napa California.

Napa California Teleport. Servicing Galaxy 18 at 123° West Longitude

Our iDirect teleports for North America are state-of-the-art and used by several Fortune 500 companies for their private satellite infrastructures.

Powerful redundant arrays maintain connectivity on Galaxy 18.
Co-location space in the teleport
Co-location space in the teleport is temperature and humidified controlled for optimal equipment performance.
Primary fiber paths
The Napa teleport is connected by two completely separate primary fiber paths to multiple backbones.
Diesel generators
Two diesel generators provide for weeks of electrical power for potential long term power outages.
Backup battery bank
An industrial quality UPS backup battery bank will supply instant and sustained power for maintaining 100% uptime.
HVAC fire suppressant system
An HVAC fire suppressant system eliminates oxygen in a server & co-lo rooms to douse any size fire, without damage to sensitive electronic equipment.

Woodbine Maryland Teleport. Servicing SES2 at 87° West Longitude

24/7 staffing for telemetry tracking and control of SES2.
Co-Location facilities are fully environmentally controlled with fire detection and suppression systems.
The Woodbine Teleport uses a powerful SONET Fiber ring for maintaining connectivity in case of fiber cut.

1500 KVA emergency power provided by three 12 cylinder 18.1 liter kVA synchronized redundant diesel generators.
There are several banks of high-kVA uninterruptible power systems available for protecting against brief power outages.
The fully redundant HVAC system includes two 80 ton glycol chillers and dry cooling fans for the main building.
