Ship-to-shore communications enhanced by BATS Wireless' new antenna automatic tracking system

BATS Wireless, one of the world's leading innovators of advanced wireless wide area network (WWAN) provisioning systems, announce the next generation of its automated tracking and stabilization platforms. The enhanced AMATS and BTS product suites, which added multi-gigabit connectivity, and 360° continuous tracking capabilities for heavy payloads – now provide continuous tracking for antennas measuring up to 8 feet and 500 lbs.

Enabling a truly universal WWAN solution, the AMATS and BTS systems can be utilized in practically any application and integrated with a near universal list of WWAN radio and antenna configurations. The systems also allow for a number of mobility scenarios, including fixed (tower to tower, building to building), fixed to mobile (ship to shore, air to ground); and fully mobile deployments (ship to ship, air to mobile command).

Together with the BATS Enhanced Configuration & Optimization (ECO) Web Management Platform, these products will enable organizations to rapidly deploy intelligent WWANs, adding flexibility, capability, and control, while eliminating the cost and complexity of legacy wireline and satellite solutions.    

“As maritime organizations, public safety networks, and military bodies increase their demands on bandwidth, they are increasingly looking toward wireless technologies to enhance their infrastructure,” said Phil Cramer, Senior VP of Sales & Marketing at BATS. With one-touch provisioning, anyone within the organization can bring a network online - virtually eliminating setup times from days to minutes.”

Other features of the AMATS & BTS product suites include:

  •     Self-Healing WWAN Links
  •     Real-time Stabilization
  •     GPS Targeting
  •     Active Signal Tracking
  •     Location Awareness
  •     SNMP Monitoring & Dynamic Service Level Validation
  •     WWAN Link Management with Fleet Manager
  •     Web/SSH/Telnet Management with BATS ECO
