“Our customer didn't have the space or in-house skills to operate their own ground station so Green Co hosted a 2.4m dish aligned to the customer's satellite.”
Even with the advent of the Internet, many ultra high availability business data functions still use the broad multicast nature of satellite to reliably deliver data.
Information such as news, weather and scientific data can be collected from stations around the globe to be quickly, efficiently and securely delivered to land based receivers to provide up to the second real time information.
These data streams are typically used by industry specialists and require large dishes to receive the signal.
Our customer didn’t have the space or in-house skills to operate their own ground station so Green Co hosted a 2.4m dish aligned to the customer’s satellite to receive the data stream which was then delivered to the customer’s site via a redundant network path, to ensure the data was real time and available 24×7.
Green Co factored in a generous rain fade margin beyond the rain profile of their site to ensure even a 1 in 250 year rain event wouldn’t interrupt the broadcast.
