Akron, OH (PRWEB) May 14, 2014
Skycasters, a leader in broadband satellite Internet for disaster recovery communications, will unveil its new Fold Down Nomad unit at Florida’s preeminent hurricane and disaster recovery event, the Governor’s Hurricane Conference, in Orlando Florida from May 11 to May 16.
The brand new Fold Down Nomad is a portable, easy-to-assemble dish system that features the Nomad AZ/AL Cap. The quick-locking AZ/EL cap saves time for installers who need to establish satellite Internet connections in remote areas by locking onto the proper cross-pole and staying put. The self-contained Fold Down Nomad includes a pole-mounted satellite dish and options such as a Wi-Fi router, antenna and gas-powered generator, all on a palette that folds down for easy transport. Numerous other options allow users to configure a system that’s right for their specific needs.
“We think the Governor’s Hurricane Conference (GHC) is an ideal location for Skycasters to showcase its products,” said James “Skip” Anderson, Skycasters director of sales and marketing. Drawing more than 2,000 participants and more than one hundred vendors, it is the single largest hurricane conference in the United States. “Although Florida has not experienced a land-falling hurricane in the last eight years, state officials recognize they must not become lax with safety precautions,” said Anderson. In fact, this conference is meant to emphasize just how important preparations like backup communications systems are when reacting to the flooding and damage caused by powerful tropical cyclones.
As such, it is a fitting location for Skycasters to showcase new satellite Internet technology aimed at establishing and maintaining communications during disaster recovery situations. Anderson, along with Skycasters Network Administrator Tom Reed, will be demonstrating the new 1.8 MST which features a 1.8-meter satellite dish and a host of enhancements that will appeal to people involved in disaster response, oil, gas & mining, construction and other industries where being in touch by remote is essential. Its larger antenna can receive a clear signal with the highest speeds Skycasters offers. It also is less susceptible to rain fade than previous models and features a variety of other improvements now, which are available on the 1.2-meter version, as well.
Skycasters has been the industry leader in VSAT technology since 2001. The company delivers commercial broadband satellite Internet access, secure VPNs, mobile portable satellite Internet and corporate data services to customers around the world using three geostationary satellites for coverage virtually everywhere in the western hemisphere.
