No more waiting for lines to be installed. With Orbitlink your system can be up and running at high-speed within weeks instead of months. As long as you have a clear view of the southern sky then Orbitlink's service is available to you.
Always-On 24 hours a day connection
Problems with dropped lines and failed connections soon become a distant memory with Orbitlink's always-on service. No longer are you held hostage to the inadequate service of your local telecom company. With 24-hour access you can reorganise your life/work around the Internet in a truly productive way.
Two-way Satellite connection
With two-way satellite connection your telephone line is no longer engaged for hours on end while you access the Internet. No more worries about breaks in the line or failures at the local exchange.
Fixed-rate affordable charges
Orbitlink's fixed charges put you in control of your Internet access costs. Users can surf freely without incurring costly per minute charges. No only does Orbitlink offer fast speeds but it works out cheaper than existing phone-based services when in use for more than 20 hours a week.
Whether its the latest anti-virus upgrade, training manual, or your favourite group's latest video, Orbitlink will download it in record time. With speeds of between 512Kbps and 4Mbps downloads arrive up to twenty times faster than modem the long wait is finally over.
Enhanced E-mail Service
The 24 hour availability of Orbitlink changes the way you work with email. Instead of having to download at particular time intervals, emails now arrive almost as soon as they are sent. Large attachments no longer pose a problem.
Future Proof System
The independence of satellite technology allows Orbitlink to offer continued service independent of terrestrial problems. Even if you move your location the service will be available.
How it Works
The system consists of a 75, 89 or 98cm Satellite dish antenna mounted on or near your premises. The dish must have a clear, unobstructed view of the southeastern sky at an elevation of between 20 and 30 degrees. Two coaxial cables connect the dish antenna to a satellite modem located inside the premises, which connects via UTP to the workstation (for single users) or to the Orbitlink firewall/router in the case of multi users.
When a user requests information from a web site, a request is sent from the PC system to a satellite orbiting 22,300 miles above the equator. The signal is then relayed to the Network Operations Centre hub facility, which has a direct connection to the Internet. The hub establishes connection with the user's selected site, and then relays the reply back through the satellite to the user.
Like ADSL, our Orbitlink service is an asymmetrical service, meaning that proportionally more bandwidth is allocated to downstream traffic than to upstream traffic. Your internet connection is "always-on", 24x7.
