The Solution

Knowing the use case, Remote Satellite was quick to begin setting up a communications suite befitting a hospital facility of the future. The first step after an extensive site survey was the installation of a 1.2 meter Dual NOC Satellite VSAT antenna on the highest point of the hospital complex. With clear lines of sight to both satellites, the terminal provides Ku-Band service through two geostationary satellites.

With the Auto-Acquire antenna in place, Remote Satellite Systems ensured that the complex had 3 dedicated Telephone numbers always on for testing, ensuring that not only would the system be always operational, but that hospital staff and building personnel would have ample opportunity to familiarize themselves with the emergency communication procedures.

The next step was ensuring that critical staff locations like the Nursing Stations and security personal was able to have a direct line of communication both incoming and outgoing in the advent of a disaster . Remote Satellite Systems had voice and data wired into the building at Primary Nurse Station, Security Operations Center, and to the offices of the hospitals Senior Management.

The facility was also given the ability to configure a multitude of additional locations by collocating a secondary Data Switch on 1st floor, providing for scalability and expansion.
