Stop by to learn how we support smart grid communications with reliable, affordable, secure satellite Internet solutions.

With the theme of the IEES conference being “Go Big,” Skycasters satellite Internet services fits right in. We’ve got BIG capabilities to support smart grid communications during the development and implementation phases, with primary and back up connectivity. In fact, Skycasters satellite Internet solutions provide:

  • More reliable service for maximum uptime
  • Greater security
  • Ease of deployment
  • Scalability
  • Increased speed and data allowances
  • Lower entry cost than ever before.

See Skycasters at the IEEE PES T&D Conference in Dallas, TX, May 2-5, Booth #161.

Skycasters representatives will be at the IEEE show to demonstrate exactly why Skycasters satellite Internet is a smarter way to support smart grid communications. In addition to reliability and cost savings, we can connect smart grid distribution assets without sacrificing smart grid benefits. And, our VSAT technology is proven to meet new “big data” challenges, supporting a wide range of cost-effective, smart grid data transmission and distribution operations, including:

  • SCADA operations
  • Voice, email, video communications
  • Data communications, monitor and control
  • Private networks and secure VPNs for compliance with NERC specs (data never crosses the public Internet)
  • Substation automation
  • Distribution automation
  • AMI smart meter backhaul nationwide

We can also keep your mobile workforce connected whenever and wherever they go. In fact, whatever smart grid data transmission and communications needs you have can be handled more reliably and cost-effectively with a Skycasters satellite Internet plan.

Less downtime, steady profitability.

With Skycasters, your satellite Internet connection is direct to the U.S. Internet backbone. That, along with our business-grade solutions, brings you a more reliable connection that maximizes uptime to help keep profits steady. Skycasters also provides:

  • Broad geographic coverage that allows for a single-vendor solution

National Hurricane Conference the next stop on the Skycasters 15th anniversary tour!

Skycasters is pleased to announce the next stop in our 15th Anniversary tour at the National Hurricane Conference in Orlando, Florida being held on March 21 – 24th.  The National Hurricane Conference focuses on preparedness and the rebuilding in the aftermath of a disaster.  Their goal is to improve hurricane preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation.

When disaster strikes one of the most important things is for communications to be up and running within minutes.  First Responders, Disaster Recovery Teams, Medical Personnel, Volunteers all depend on communications to be able to coordinate and collaborate between various organizations in order to save lives.  That’s why Skycasters continues our commitment to Emergency Management, Disaster Recovery and First Responders with our mobile solutions.  These solutions have auto-pointing systems which makes deployment quick and easy, even for users with little or no technical background.  Upon arriving on site, responders can deploy one of Skycasters mobile solutions and have internet access within 10 minutes allowing search and rescue to begin within just minutes.

Skycasters also just recently released new Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity plans which meet the unique needs when disasters happen.

To check out more of Skycasters, mobile solutions including our new rental options, be sure to stop by our space Vehicle B where we will have one of our 1.2m Mobile Satellite Trailers (MST).

We all know that Hurricanes, earth quakes, floods and other natural disasters are just part of life but it pays to be prepared.  If your company or organization doesn’t have a back-up internet connection or disaster recovery plan, please stop by and see what Skycasters can do for you!


We’re at our best when things are at their worst.

Skycasters will reveal new satellite Internet plans for Disaster Recovery at RES/CON in New Orleans.

When disaster strikes, you need to be ready to strike back. And searching for an Internet connection in a disaster zone is definitely not on the agenda. With landlines down and destruction as far as the eye can see, you need to be prepared in advance to help when people need you most.

Fortunately, Skycasters can help. We’ll be at RES/CON in New Orleans March 1-3, featuring our disaster recovery and emergency preparedness solutions in Booth #115. Stop by our booth to learn how our broadband satellite Internet plans —along with our mobile and portable products —can give you confidence to deal with any disaster, natural or man-made.

Among the products we’ll be showcasing are the Skycasters 1.8 MST Mobile Satellite Trailer and other portable options, on the second leg of our 15th Anniversary Celebration Tour. The Skycasters MST lets you take your Internet connection on the go and establish a Wi-Fi hotspot anywhere in a matter of minutes. And it’s easy as pushing a button!

At the disaster site, Skycasters provides an immediate satellite Internet connection with the bandwidth and information rates you need to run logistical command operations, conduct VoIP and email operations, look up medical records … anything you need to stay in communication.

At our RES/CON booth, we’ll also be featuring our newly published disaster recovery plans. Our new plans assure you that price will never come between you and your recovery efforts …and will provide the security you need for communicating in a crisis—even if you’ve undergone recent budget cuts.

See Skycasters at RES/CON in New Orleans at Booth #115 to learn how a Skycasters satellite Internet service plan can give you the confidence you need to face any disaster.
