Press release date: February 9, 2012

AKRON, Ohio -- January marked the official launch of Skycasters' 1.8m trailer, making it the largest such satellite Internet system released by the industry leaders to date. Engineered to be fast, tough and smart, Skycasters' mobile satellite communications trailers can be easily transported to remote locations and establish a communications link in less than ten minutes.

These units are a superior communications choice for emergency response, construction sites, and even remote mining camps. For situations that require reliable, powerful satellite communications, these trailers from Skycasters are ideal solutions.

The newest trailer launch marks the largest design Skycasters has built thus far. The technical specifications of the Skycasters trailer reveal the 1.8m is a unique piece of engineering which can be custom built for customers. The 1.8m trailer can accommodate a larger satellite dish and up to a 3000 Watt Honda generator. Wi/Fi, RoIP, VoIP, wireless mesh, video surveillance, microcell, PTMP, cellular backhaul and SCADA are just a few of the applications that can be used with the 1.8m mobile satellite trailer.

Skycasters also manufactures a 1.2m trailer that comes equipped with two 8 dbi Wi/Fi antennas. The 1.8m trailer recently launched has one 15 dbi Wi/Fi antenna. This has a much higher pole which helps to extend the range of the wireless router for optimal performance. Mobile satellite Internet connectivity can be established in as little as ten minutes, and as simply as pushing a button.

The 1.8 trailer is towable with a medium sized vehicle and has plenty of extra storage in the rear utility box due to increased width of the trailer deck (82 inches) if needed. The electronics box of the trailer can also come with removable plugs.

Powered by the award winning iDirect VSAT platform, Skycasters provides satellite internet, emergency communications equipment, data and VPN services. For more information call 800-268-8653 or visit
