AST and OneWeb believe that connectivity at sea should be as seamless and simple as it is onshore. OneWeb, when aligned with AST’s INTEGRA suite of services, will enable faster and better communications for the maritime industry.
Trying to manage your satellite communications traffic is becoming increasingly difficult, particularly in today’s BYOD (bring-your-own-device) world. It’s not always possible to detect which devices are connecting to the satellite network, which applications they’re running, how much data they’re generating and how frequently they’re being updated.
Traditional firewalls are no longer effective at blocking the growing number of encrypted applications. Undetectable applications not only eat into bandwidth allowances but pose a potentially significant threat to your cybersecurity.
A lack of detailed, real-time reporting makes it difficult to see exactly how much traffic is passing over the satellite connection.
Through AST’s leading INTEGRA suite of services, vessel owners, crew and IT managers are empowered with access to satellite data consumption, giving real-time access to monitor and control data usage enabling efficient bandwidth management. The service is exclusively available via My AST Portal giving global access to data that puts you in control of your airtime.
Our services give you the insight to prioritise critical communications and make decisions on your bandwidth management backed by intelligence.
AST’s flagship service is INTEGRA Control, which allows real-time application control for traffic initiated from the satellite terminal at the point it reaches our ground-based network. Through our intuitive software, you can set traffic volume limits by application category, allowing you to prioritise bandwidth and ease congestion to maximise performance for business-critical applications.
INTEGRA Control not only benefits from all the features of INTEGRA See, INTEGRA See+ and INTEGRA Control Lite but also empowers you with real-time bandwidth management and application-level control for your satellite connection.
