A LONG WAY TO GO FOR SOME SUN!

We don’t just provide hardware, airtime and remote support… our engineers, who are always ready for deployments, have been completing repairs and training with users operating in Lebanon, maintaining critical communications with VT iDirect satcom kit operating on Avanti Communications  airtime in one of the region’s most challenging environments.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES!

What a difference a day makes… testing on a Connect 100 satcom terminal, completed come rain or shine. Could spring be here at last?

WET WEATHER DEMO

Most of our kit is specifically designed to work in tough environments and some demo’s put that to the test! Despite the rain, wind and mud, we had a great day showing our SCYTALE voice and data solution, along with the ultra-portable Satcube AB satcom terminal. We had a lot of interest in our SCYTALE Maritime, working live on Thuraya Telecom and the GRC ROIP Mission Module, capable of transmitting encrypted radio beyond line of sight.

COMMUNICATION IN CHALLENGING ENVIRONMENTS

FaceTime in challenging environments. Providing VOIP and Wi-Fi, SCYTALE can bond multiple GSM networks to maximise available bandwidth, with the option to fail-over on to satcom, if cellular networks are compromised. The addition of a picocell allows users to make voice calls with their own mobile devices, delivering the ultimate communication bubble!

FACETIME WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST

Building on our tried and tested SCYTALE defence welfare products, GRC’s innovative engineering team use real-world knowledge and next generation technology to provide a unique way of enabling deployed personnel to keep in touch with friends and family. Using satcom and bonded GSM, this evolution of SCYTALE provides VOIP phones and Wi-Fi in a cost-effective, rapidly deployable package, allowing operational personnel to get FaceTime when they need it most.
