The telematics world sees rapidly increasing demand to establish communication under all imaginable conditions. Communication and data exchange via satellite based systems is a growing market, especially for communication in remote locations. Unfortunately the comparable high cost for modems and the usually required certifications often pose a high hurdle to climb for the system integrators. A significant number of good application ideas go unrealized just because the initial very high cost for lower volumes would render the project financially unfeasible. Hirschmann – working jointly with various providers in the satellite communication industry - now combines its antenna know-how to integration of the market leading modems. Pairing the best antenna performance directly with the modem provides the customer not only with a certified high performance solution but more so allows passing on a volume effect for the modems, helping to overcome the financial hurdles and allowing ideas to be realized. 


Project Requirements:

  • Integration of market leading modems 
  • Realization of solutions for various satellite services 
  • High performance antennas 
  • Flexible use under varying conditions 
  • Provider certified 
  • Fast product realization 
  • Cost efficient for low and high volume projects


Solution:

  • Utilization of high performance antenna designs in combination with market leading modems 
  • Initial projects for Orbcomm and Iridium service 
  • Flexible products allowing integration of other functions 
  • Ground plane independent high performance antennas 
  • Elimination of RF cables – serial RS232 interface 
  • Products undergo all required certifications 
  • Easy to use plug–and–play products 
  • Significant cost reduction


Advantages:

  • Outstanding RF know-how and market leading antenna products 
  • Leading antenna supplier and appointed development partner for various satellite communication providers 
  • Close cooperation with leading modem developers 
  • Automotive quality and low-cost design know-how 
  • Flexibility to realize customer specific changes 
  • Fast development – from prototype to final product 
  • All out of one hand resource 
  • Global support 
  • Low manufacturing and tooling cost 
  • High volume Tier–1 component sourcing priority and cost advantage
