SiRRAN’s NETSeries GSM, 3G and LTE network technologies have been selected by Cobham SATCOM to power their new “EXPLORER Mobile Net” system, launched this week at London’s DSEI show and the media focused IBC show in Amsterdam.

SiRRAN is pleased to partner with Cobham SATCOM...the go-to provider for broadcasters, news organizations and NGOs around the world...SiRRAN's 3G and LTE platforms are particularly well suited to these markets.

The EXPLORER Mobile Net provides an ultra-portable solution for instantly powering a coverage area of up to seven kilometers for mobile phones and smart devices within just a few minutes. The tactical single-case cellular network solution allows people to stay in touch under the most challenging and demanding conditions by providing instant local communications without backhaul. Furthermore, Mobile Net fully enables global inter operable voice, video and data communications when paired with a Cobham satellite terminal, or any other form of internet connectivity.

SiRRAN’s NETSeries small cell smart edge software can accommodate hundreds of concurrent device registrations and up to 32 simultaneous user sessions, with full EPC and HLR databases at the edge for maximum operational efficiency, including self-contained use with no active backhaul. Within a single kit, Mobile Net operates up to two picocells simultaneously, plus WiFi for maximum versatility. From a single kit, users may deploy one, or any two, of the supported cellular frequency options. No other solution on the market today can offer the same range, features and functionality in such a cost-effective manner.

GSM options allow for the greatest range, and a simple connection to a BGAN or MSS (Mobile Satellite Services) terminal enables devices to interconnect for global roaming using just 128 Kbps of data. 3G and LTE solutions can provide higher throughput and video enabled solutions ranging from 1 to 75 Mbps, depending on availability of backhaul. Importantly, the system’s data throughput can be intelligently throttled back to ensure affordable transmission of key data over a wide area network, or optimized for full-service local network sharing of data and applications by teams on the ground.

Dean Parsons, CEO SiRRAN Communications, said: “SiRRAN is pleased to partner with Cobham SATCOM, the leader in mobile satellite terminals and the go-to provider for broadcasters, news organizations and NGOs around the world. EXPLORER Mobile Net creates a natural mobile network extension to a satellite link, providing private coverage to allow camera crews, journalists and other commercial users the ability to be agile, not fixed in one spot next to the dish. SiRRAN's 3G and LTE platforms are particularly well suited to these markets, and alongside Cobham’s affordable terminals deliver an instant network from just a couple of small cases.”
