Share Article

On Call is expanding the QuickSPOT™ network to include scheduled services which feature the same automation the network is known for. The new network will be built on the Romantis Universal Hardware Platform.

On the new network it should take just moments to book satellite space online and then access it by the same non-technical operator using our auto-deploy QuickSPOT™ system.

On Call Communications announced that it is developing the second generation of it’s QuickSPOT™ on demand satellite network.    The second generation network will expand the network capabilities with higher upload speeds, dual feeds, and new flexibility in choosing between on-demand and scheduled service access while maintaining the completely automated operation it is known for.

On Call has chosen the Romantis Universal Hardware Platform (UHP) for the next generation network. Romantis also has developed an advanced network management system which enables high bandwidth satellite links and precision management tools on which On Call layers a smart scheduling system.

The new network will allow broadcast news and sports organizations to access higher upload speeds than the existing QuickSPOT™ network and allow for dual HD video feeds. Additional multi-casting options will be available as well. A unique scheduling system will let clients schedule satellite and fiber network reservations online, direct feeds to their selected destinations and then access capacity using the same convenient, fully automated functionality of the current QuickSPOT™ on demand network.

"Our mission is to provide our client’s with easy and efficient satellite network access,” said Jim Gilbert, On Call’s CEO. On the new network it should take just moments to book satellite space online and then access it by the same non-technical operator using our auto-deploy QuickSPOT™ system.

The Romantis UHP technology really enables the next generation developments. The high upload speeds, the ability to create MESH networks and the compact design make it ideal for a mobile, automated network suited to broadcasters.

On Call has purchased two of the management systems. One for the domestic US market and the second will provide service in Europe.

Initial trials have been successful for domestic, disaster response clients and for broadcast use on the European network last fall.

"On Call Communications is an ideal client for the Romantis technology," says Vagan Shakhgildian, President and CEO of Romantis, Inc. "They not only appreciate the technology but implement it in creative ways that truly increase functionality and convenience for the satellite client. Their clients will see real advances in productivity and ease of operations thanks to the value added services they have developed with their automated, scheduled service network."
