This terminal is a further development of the existing Capsat® Messenger (M4) system with a focus on the MPDS service. With MPDS, the user is only charged by the amount of data sent and received and it is therefore an ideal solution for e-mail, scada applications, web and intranet access.
The TT-3080M Data Terminal, which uses Inmarsat’s GAN Service, is enabled for data transfer at either 2.4 Kbps, 64Kbps (Mobile ISDN) or Packet Data (MPDS). The voice facility is not available on this terminal, making it smaller, less expensive and more suitable for data-intensive solutions.
The terminal was developed primarily for scada applications, which are often run from unmanned locations and where data gathering and transmission is a necessity. With the Data Terminal, GCS expands into new markets such as remote banking, rural social welfare programs, and oil & gas firstname.lastname@example.org.
