VSAT Satellite Hardware and Service


Emergency Communications Trailers

Mobil Satellite Technologies is an experienced satellite network operator, currently providing mobile and portable automatic satellite hardware and broadband services to over 1,000 Federal, State, County, and Municipal mobile command centers. They also service oil & gas exploration teams, mobile medical outfits, and humanitarian missions with an average network uptime of 99.8%. Mobil Satellite Technologies’ new ETC-14 emergency trailers house sensitive network and radio equipment which are essential to providing robust broadband communications at any disaster scene or remote location within just minutes. This equipment includes:

  • iDirect x5 modem
  • AAQ AVL Controller
  • Cisco 2911 router, Cisco SF500-24P 24-port Gigabit Ethernet Switch, Cisco MGBSX1 Gigabit SX mini-GBIC SFP, Eight (8) Cisco CP7925 IP Phone
  • Transceiver
  • 1RU rack mount PC 4GB video server, Video monitor – rack mounted
  • ACU2000
  • 800 MHz GTR Repeaters, 800 MHz MTR Repeaters
  • 700 MHz Combiner with diplexer, 800 MHz Combiner

Mobil Satellite Technologies contacted EIC Solutions because the vital network and radio equipment housed in the ETC-14 emergency trailers cannot be subject to heat-related downtime or failure. The build-up of heat within the trailer caused by the operating equipment, ambient environment, and solar heat was their primary concern. It is crucial that this equipment be environmentally controlled to ensure public safety agencies and first responders can utilize the high-quality broadband voice, video, and data services when they arrive on location. The sensitive electronics running the emergency trailer also provide the site with power, scene lighting, and surveillance. Because Mobil Satellite Technologies had used EIC Solutions products on previous builds, they knew they could trust EIC’s products for the ETC-14 trailers’ mission critical equipment. EIC recommended integrating an industrial-grade compressor-based air conditioner to protect their equipment, with features including:

  • 10,000 BTU Closed loop compressor- based air conditioner
  • Digital temperature controller
  • Vertical mounting orientation
  • Integral condensate management system
  • High efficiency non-CFC refrigerant
  • UL Certification
  • NEMA 4 Construction
  • Gray Powder coat finish
  • 120 VAC Power

By integrating EIC’s cooling system, Mobil Satellite Technologies reduced the risk of downtime and heat-related failure to critical equipment. This ensures continual performance that first responders can count on during an emergency situation. Happy with the cooling systems performance and overall design, Mobil Satellite Technologies will continue to use EIC Solutions as their supplier for future applications because EIC is a “brand they can trust”.
