PetroCom Launches VSAT System

April 18, 2006

PetroCom’s new Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) satellite communication system is structured around private communication networks. Built with the newest technologies and equipment, this system is designed to offer the ability to turn bandwidth on and off, re-allocate bandwidth or schedule increased bandwidth as business needs change. Recently, PetroCom signed agreements to provide VSAT voice and data services for Onyx Special Services, Superior Offshore International and Tetra Applied Technologies. Last month, Helix Energy Solutions tapped PetroCom to provide VSAT services for its offshore fleet. Multiplex VSAT communication networks with speeds from 64 to 512K are available for fixed and stabilized applications. Built around VIPERSAT Network’s capacity management platform and RAD Data Communication’s IP-based multiplexers, PetroCom’s system guarantees a committed information rate, prioritizes voice over data to eliminate jitter and delivers superior voice quality. PetroCom also offers fixed pricing; most maintenance and technical support expenses are included. PetroCom is also the first to offer “add-on” satellite services or “ASAT” services within established private networks. A primary subscriber, at their discretion, can grant third-party clients, vendors and service providers access to their company’s private network. The subscriber can then choose to bill these authorized users for their bandwidth allocation or have PetroCom bill them directly. Software control of the PetroCom ASAT system still assures a guaranteed CIR.
