AUSTIN, Texas (August 9, 2013) - Uplogix, the Global leader in Local Network Device and Machine-to-Machine Management, announced that Local Management software supports the DirectPoint mode for TracStar satellite antennas. The functionality adds to the robust support Uplogix already provides for satcom systems in use worldwide in energy, military and telecom deployments.
The DirectPoint functionality is designed to enhance satellite acquisition accuracy and reduce startup time by coupling the antenna with the satellite modem. With DirectPoint, the antenna goes directly to the data satellite. Enhanced communications capabilities with intelligent modems make it possible to acquire, lock and peak on the specific satellite without the traditional pre-alignment stage.
The Uplogix DirectPoint support for the TracStar AVL Antenna Controller Unit (ACU) adds to the specialized features Local Management delivers for both fixed (autoacquire) antennas and the stabilized antennas common in maritime applications. Both types of satcom deployments benefit from the local, direct connections to network and communications devices made by the patented Uplogix platform.
Uplogix benefits for satcoms include:
Uplogix customers use Local Management for satellite installations spanning the globe in a variety of environments from ships in the Gulf of Mexico, to drilling platforms in the North Sea and military bases in hostile lands.
For more information, Uplogix customers should visit the Uplogix Support Site and reference the Uplogix Configuration Guide for the TracStar Antenna Controller Unit for complete installation and configuration information.
Uplogix provides the first fully integrated local management solution. Our co-located management appliances automate routine administration, maintenance and recovery tasks—securely and regardless of network availability. In comparison, traditional network and systems management depends on the network, uses multiple tools, and remains labor intensive. Uplogix puts the power of your most trusted IT administrator everywhere, all the time.
