StratosITek Technology
The StratosITek network is based on a robust, IP-optimized platform that has been field-proven throughout the world. A typical remote site is equipped with a satellite antenna and associated radio equipment for two-way send-and-receive communications, as well as an indoor unit that connects seamlessly to your PCs on a LAN using a standard Ethernet interface. A number of remote site configurations are available:

Fixed-Site Land – for permanent or semi-permanent installations. Antennas are typically 1.2 to 2.4 meters and are installed with wall, post or non-penetrating roof mounts.

Transportable Land – available in three categories: trailer, flyaway and auto-acquire.

  1. Trailer mounts feature a satellite dish pre-mounted on a single-axel tow-hitch trailer, and include a GPS and Stratos antenna pointing assembly that allows you to get up and running in approximately 15 minutes.
  2. Flyaway terminals are designed for repeated assembly and disassembly, breaking down for transport into lightweight cases and taking approximately 30 minutes to setup.
  3. Auto-acquire terminals are designed for emergency situations when time is of the essence, mounting on light trucks or SUVs and automatically deploying and acquiring the satellite within a few minutes of activation.
