MELBOURNE, FL/HOUSTON – March 11, 2014 (Harris Booth #4000)

Harris CapRock Communications debuted its Advanced VSAT solution for offshore and deepwater customers, at SATELLITE 2014, being held March 11-13 at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

Utilizing the latest in Advanced VSAT technologies, the breakthrough service enables real-time bandwidth upgrades through a secure and cost-effective solution. The service dynamically reassigns satellite capacity on demand by leveraging Comtech EF Data Corporation’s efficient modem technologies and Vipersat Management System.

“As offshore and deepwater communications requirements continue to grow, we are dedicated to making the right technology investments to support our customers’ dynamic operations,” said Tracey Haslam, president, Harris CapRock Communications. “Customers are looking for unprecedented speed and flexibility in capacity changes, and with our Advanced VSAT solution, we’re the first to meet their needs for true bandwidth on demand.”

When a deepwater platform requests extended bandwidth for applications such as data logging, drilling at the critical part of a well, streaming a training video, or utilizing a telemedicine solution, Harris CapRock’s dynamic bandwidth management architecture will provide customers the maximum capacity available without the costs of dedicated bandwidth.

Harris CapRock recently deployed the Advanced VSAT solution on Royal Caribbean’s global fleet as well as networks for customer operations in the Gulf of Mexico. The Service delivered unmatched processing capacity and nearly 20 times the information rates of a prior solution.

“Harris CapRock invests in next-generation technologies and partners with key equipment providers to improve the customer experience,” Haslam said. “Deploying Advanced VSAT globally allows us to offer high-capacity, dynamic solutions that meet or exceed our customers’ growing bandwidth requirements, faster than ever before, no matter where their operations are located.”

Harris CapRock’s Advanced VSAT solution will also be part of the business’ exhibitions at CABSAT 2014 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and Cruise Shipping Miami 2014 in Miami Beach, Fla. Both events are being held March 11-13.
