OmanSat- SCT required a network solution that would meet specific technical requirements. In fact, a Baseband Gateway to be installed in an existing teleport and remote Terminals over Oman covered by three Ka multi spot beams. The network had to serve thousands of sites of various verticals. Some examples are; government entities, remote education, schools, local service providers, cellular companies and defense tactical connectivity.
SpaceBridge offered the implementation of an ASAT™ High Throughput Gateway with full HTS capacities. It is capable of accessing the bandwidth and power resources over assumed Ka band transponders. Moreover, they designed and deployed the turnkey project by providing installation and integration. As well as activation of the Multi Spot Beam (MSB) platform in Ka band with three Gateway Beams and three User Beams covering the whole country and territorial waters of Oman. SpaceBridge provided a remote user terminals bundle that included antennas, RF and modems. Additionally, in country managed services and support for the operation of the network and continuous training were provided.
Benefits of SpaceBridge
The platform includes a Redundant ASAT Gateway platform. The sizing takes advantage of the network scalability offered by the SpaceBridge solution. Starting with the minimum investment required according to bandwidth profile packages and related terminals with the traffic requested by the customer. This can be gradually upgraded depending on bandwidth or number of remote terminals needed.
Therefore, the solution provided by SpaceBridge allowed Omansat SCT to take advantage of a single platform. In fact, it has high flexibility, high efficiency, and high capacity to provide quality communication links for different applications. As a result, the network has grown steadily since its activation, satisfying a variety of applications and sectors including internet access for residentials, schools, governmental entities , CBH, military, banking, oil & gas and many others.
