Maritime and Offshore Ku-band VSAT satellite plans
Guaranteed provides a minimum guaranteed bandwidth to meet certain applications’ minimum bandwidth requirements to run over a satellite communication network. It is offered as a dedicated CIR service to ensure the asset always receives a minimum amount of bandwidth to run onboard applications and provide data and voice services for an asset’s business and crew services. With a 1:1 CIR vs. MIR service, the asset will always know the received bandwidth meets onboard requirements within budget.
Burst is delivered with a CIR that is a minimum guaranteed bandwidth, but has a high MIR for bursting capability. The CIR is delivered to the asset and allows the asset more bandwidth when downloading large amounts of data and the capability to burst up to the MIR if available. Burst’s high MIR allows assets to access more bandwidth when there is premium usage on-board due to operations and crew demands occurring simultaneously.
Professional is Speedcast’s customizable VSAT service delivered with a CIR and MIR that meets any asset’s and crew communications needs. With Professional, the service and onboard communication network are tailored based on customer specifications.
