China State Oceanic Administration (SOA) Environmental Monitoring & Marine Forecasting
China State Oceanic Administration (SOA) authorities needed to deploy a reliable VSAT network. In fact, this must be done for marine environmental monitoring, disaster forecasting and warning and to streamline inter-office operations. Moreover, the network needed to efficiently deliver real-time data, video and voice capabilities from over 100 remote sites.
In fact, unique Star/Mesh hybrid network system, enabling better monitoring, warning, and management functions with the aid of live on-the-scene video, maritime communications applications. Moreover, enterprise data communications network supports IT applications that streamline processes such as requisitions.
Benefits of SpaceBridge
Therefore, the SpaceBridge’s solution accesses two satellites (C-band and Ku-band). In fact, this solution combines Mesh and Star network topologies in the same network for mission critical communications. Moreover, it uses both TDMA and SCPC Return Links.
Challenge for marine forecasting
In fact, SOA charged with protecting the health of coastal marine ecosystems. Therefore, to prevent fragile marine ecosystems from deteriorating, SOA must quickly obtain accurate and reliable marine monitoring data, and based on the data. Consequently, it must ensure timely response to marine pollution incidents.
The SOA satellite communication network system composed of one central station and nearly 100 remote satellite stations. Moreover, a dual-band (C/Ku-Band) satellite network, it supports two-way transmission of video, IP data and voice between remote stations and a central Hub station.
Results: The Benefits of SpaceBridge
Additionally, through SpaceBridge VSAT and DVB-RCS satellite communications technology, two-way video, IP data and voice links are now active between remote sites and a VSAT Hub at SOA’s Customer Information Center where all real-time video and environmental monitoring data is analyzed and processed in real time. Additionally, with the addition of Mesh capability to the DVB-RCS system, remote sites can directly link to each other, and to the Customer Information Center.
