2016 New Technology, New Service Plans from Skycasters

Just in time for Satellite 2016 and the company’s 15th anniversary, Skycasters has incorporated exciting new technology allowing the release of new service plans. At Skycasters, high speed reliable connectivity for our customers is only part of our mission.

With these advances, Skycasters is releasing new service plans at Satellite 2016, which still include their industry separating Committed Information Rates. These new plans will not only have increased speeds but also increased data allowances.

Skycasters is now running iDirect’s iDX software version 3.3 that now supports the X7 modem. This upgrade along with the new hardware increases their network efficiencies allowing them to provide faster speeds that can meet the most stringent of customer requirements.

Their mission is not only to provide a premium network but to also provide overall solutions to their customer base. To that end Skycasters is excited to include the X7 modem with their auto pointing platforms provided by C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. which have been partners for over 10 years.  The new plans along with the reliability of the C-COM platforms will provide a robust solution that the customers can rely on for years to come.

“C-COM has been working with Skycasters for almost a decade and they have proven to be one of our most dedicated integrator partners in the United States,” said Drew Klein, Director of International Business Development, C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. “With our iNetVu® controllers fully supporting the iDirect X7 modem, we expect to see many more projects going forward between Skycasters and C-COM. Skycasters is a go-to brand name for any customer who needs a complete SATCOM solution,” Klein continued.

A total solution also includes the network design itself. Skycasters specialties include multi-site private networks which are great for financial institutions, the energy market, and for government agencies including Homeland Security who can take advantage of their GSA pricing.

Their mobile and fixed equipment solutions and service plans options are effective for the energy markets such as oil, gas, mining, as well as solar and wind. The quick deploy MST (Mobile Satellite Trailers) are a great solution for disaster recovery and are available for purchase or rental. With a dedicated or share backhand solutions cellular or remote ISP, the MST is the ideal option for any market.
