Integrasys, a major manufacturer of satellite spectrum monitoring systems and VSAT tools, has delivered its link budget tool, Beam Budget, to flat panel antenna manufacturer, Kymeta Corporation.
Kymeta specialises in delivering robust, mobile connectivity solutions through both its electronically steered satellite terminals and satellite connectivity data packages. With Beam Budget, Kymeta staff can access highly accurate link budget calculations quickly and easily select the most suitable satellite networks for their customers.
Beam Budget drastically reduces the complexity surrounding link budget calculations. It makes it simple for anyone to perform link budget calculations, which are a vital way of accounting for gains and losses on any given satellite link. The results are displayed in an easy-to-understand format and can be exported as Excel and PDF reports as required and customized with the user logo and information. Accessibility to link budget calculations improves the network selection process whilst providing customers with tangible reports to evidence the benefits of the network selection.
Speaking about the choice of solution, Richard Hadsall, Vice President of Global Network Operations, Kymeta, commented: “Selecting the correct satellite network enables us to deliver the best connectivity to our customers. After doing link budget analysis by hand for years, this tool speeds up the process to just minutes. Even non-technical employees now have the ability to run the analysis and provide a better response time to our clients. Beam Budget provides our sales team with quick and easy access to highly accurate results, even when on-site, allowing us to deliver an efficient and comprehensive service to our customers.”
Alvaro Sanchez, CEO, Integrasys, added: “It’s fantastic to see Kymeta is improving efficiencies from utilising our Beam Budget tool. The tool makes link budget calculations accessible for anyone within the organisation, as well as making it easy for stakeholders to understand network selection. By making satellite selection easier, Kymeta can improve efficiency whilst maximising return on investment and materialising new business with users not yet in the satellite arena. We look forward to working more with innovative companies like Kymeta.”
Beam Budget is used by satellite operators and service providers when establishing new satellite networks or quoting for new business. Additionally, it can be used by satellite customers, providing them the peace of mind knowing that the service quoted will be the correct choice.
