TSAT 3000

A private satellite network for SCADA applications

The TSAT3000 VSAT satellite system is specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of the SCADA and utility industries. TSAT3000 provides a private satellite network operating a direct communication channel between a process control centre and remote locations. By locating a private TSAT3000 HUB at a control centre, complete independence of any public infrastructure is obtained, and secure and reliable communication is assured. Reliability can be enhanced further with implementation of the load sharing redundant HUB option.
