Thales MissionLINK 700
A flexible, capable & wide ranging solution
The Thales MissionLINK provides a reliable, robust solution, with truly global coverage via the Iridium NEXT LEO constellation. The combination of the Iridium constellation and NSSLGlobal network infrastructure ensures the customer will experience the best possible voice and data service.
A single cable solution provides both power and communication between the antenna and indoor unit. A supplied 3m cable is ideal for vehicle mounting, whilst the unit can accommodate up to 50m of connection cable, enabling it be installed in a range of locations whilst still having the best view of the sky.
Utilising Iridium Certus, the terminal currently delivers a 704kbps/152kbps connection speed. Use of the inbuilt 3 independent voice lines is also enhanced by the low latency Certus connection, providing a rapid response for critical data whenever it is required. When an assured data rate connection is required, the unit can provide a streaming speed of 256kbps. This service is due to launch on the Iridium network in 2020.
NSSLGlobal has also fully integrated the Iridium Certus® service into its next gen customer INSIGHT Portal for the complete management of the Certus service.
Built with government customers in mind, the MissionLink terminal can be configured to suit a vast range of telephony and radio equipment. The front three RJ45 ports can each support SIP phones or data connections to a computer or network. A dedicated POTS RJ14 port can support an analogue handset, with the option to add another handset via a splitter.
A radio base station can be connected to the GPIO RS232 port on the reverse of the unit, providing a radio gateway function. This allows all of the radio equipment attuned to the gateway radio to be called from a standard phone anywhere on the planet.
The MissionLINK also features a configurable WAN port, allowing an external bearer such as an LTE modem or network connection to be used as the main communications path when available. The option to use different WAN connections with seamless transfer to Satellite enables the MissionLINK to cater for both longer in situ use with redundancy for communication, as well as mobile field use with its truly global coverage.
