Q. Why use commercial grade VSAT service?

A. Consumer-grade VSAT is not reliable enough for a mission critical business or job-site and typically has high contention ratios, low fair-usage thresholds, limited geographic coverage, and access to technical support is at an extra cost.


VSAT Satellite Internet
  • Ideal solution for a remote site or other location that cannot rely on land-based networks.
  • Global coverage.
  • 99% reliability.
  • Independent of land-based networks. Requires a dish antenna to be installed on your building or property which provides a direct uplink to the satellite.
  • Commercial grade equipment.
  • Business-class internet service.
  • Internet service at a flat monthly rate.
  • Shared service delivers download speeds up to 3 Mbps with low contention ratios and generous fair usage policies.
  • Dedicated bandwidth service and multiple levels of CIR (guaranteed bandwidth) available.
  • Worldwide network of certified installers.
  • VSAT service includes 24 hour network monitoring and technical support.

 

Networking

OCENS will design, test, and can also install your site’s local area network infrastructure. Along with standard networking components, we offer high-range, outdoor rated Wireless Access Points and Bridges, and gateway routers and accelerators. A gateway router is designed to protect your network and enhance your service in the following ways:
  • Firewall—Protect your network from unauthorized access.
  • Black lists and white lists—Control the internet traffic on your network.
  • Metered internet access—Set limits for individual users for bandwidth, data consumption, usage time, time of day, or traffic type. Resell internet access pins to recover communications costs or use as a profit center.
  • Web acceleration—Compress web traffic to improve service speed and reduce data consumption. Increases the capacity of your current internet service level. Saves you money by addressing your business needs at a lower service level than would be possible without acceleration.
  • Automatic failover and load balancing—Automatically switches to a secondary connection if the primary fails. Load balancing makes use of all available bandwidth from any other services at the site.
VoIP

OCENS provides a unique compressed VoIP technology that reduces your bandwidth consumption and allows you to have more phone lines with much less CIR required than conventional VoIP systems. Other advantages include:
  • Very competitive toll rates.
  • Can be used in any geographic location and with any type of IP connection.
  • Unlimited in-network calling. Multiple sites enjoy unlimited calling from site to site with no additional toll costs.
  • Local numbers available for the U.S., Canada, and many other countries. Any number can be used in any geographic location.
  • Built in optional password protection for each line.
  • Any line can be configured to allow prepaid calling in order to control costs or create a profit center.
  • NEW--Now use standard analog phone handsets, SIP phones, smartphones, tablets, or computers for calling.

Definitions

ISP (Internet Service Provider)

A company that provides internet services.

Shared Service Level

Internet service in which the total bandwidth allocated to a regional area is shared amongst all of the users in the area. The service level is the maximum possible bandwidth available per subscriber for the region.

CIR (Committed Information Rate)

A bandwidth rate that is guaranteed by the ISP. In other words, the minimum service speed you will have regardless of any other activity over the network.

Contention Ratio

The ratio of users to total amount of available shared bandwidth for a given area. A higher contention ration means there is more competition for bandwidth amongst the subscribers in an area.

Fair Usage Policy

A policy that is established by each ISP which places a total data usage limit on each subscriber. The usage allowance is typically monthly and varies depending on the service plan. A lower fair usage policy is more limiting since the monthly data allowance is lower. With most ISPs, once the monthly limit is reached, the subscriber’s service is either turned off, throttled back (reduced to a slower service level), or charged for extra usage fees.

LAN (Local Area Network)

The group of computers, network appliances, and other devices that makeup the local network at a specific site or location.

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol)

The application of voice services over an internet connection
