The Ka-8200 has been designed for a wide variety of low data rate random access satellite applications such as:
- Transaction Oriented Applications: Gas Stations, ATM Banking, Lottery terminals, Self-Service Voting Kiosks
- Interactive-TV: VoD, Program Rating, Shopping, Social TV
- Sensor Networks such as Oil and Water pipe lines, Smart Fences and Perimeter Control
- Smart Grid, M2M, SCADA and Telemetry
- Smart Home and Internet-of-Things (IoT)
- Large-scale Random Access Messaging Networks.
“Our new Ka-8200 and Ku-8200 Ultra-Compact All-Outdoor VSAT transceiver-router represents a breakthrough enabling M2M, SCADA and IoT over satellite for areas were other short-haul wireless communication means are unavailable. Recent market reports forecast that Internet-of-Things (IoT) will overtake mobile phones by 2018 reaching 16 billion connected devices by the end of 2021, and we expect a large growth in satellite connectivity for such applications, complimenting 4G/LTE and 5G with IoT, M2M and SCADA deployments,” said Oscar Glottman, CMO Satellite Business Unit at Advantech Wireless.
