Transportable Communications

Transportable Satellite Terminals

Prime Satellite Broadband has provided a transportable satellite solution for satellite broadband with single button deployment for many years. Clients have included:

  • Care UK for West Midlands NHS
  • Christies Hospital NHS
  • Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue
  • National Grid (now Cadent)
  • Action Cancer
  • Ceredigion County Council
  • Cleveland Fire and Rescue
  • Vale of Glamorgan Youth Service
  • Fingal County Council
Our emphasis today is on Ka-band services and we can support several requirements including Blue Light and similar command vehicle operations, mobile medical vehicles, education inthe community, mobile libraries, broadcast and any other service that needs to have reliable commucations transported to where it is needed.

Satellite Ka-band is a reliable service today and at a much lower cost can support very high upload speeds of 30Mbps and above using a 1.2m dish. Today's technology will support the high speeds in most weather conditions we get in the UK. Prime Satellite broadband can pool bndwidth so that the cost is spread across many vehicles providing substantial savings over dedicated bandwidth for individual vehicles.

We can also provide fly-away solutions where you need to put a terminal into different vehicles rather than dedicated to one vehicle.


With the greater coverage provided by 4G today, Prime Satellite Broadband can offer in-vehicle 4G systems. Whether for tracking, telemetric data, data transfer or just to provide passegers a connected experience, this is today an important advance. We can provide you with 4G LTE broadband in leased cars,commercial trucks, on-the-road-PR trailers, sales people, commuters, etc. The applications are endless.

We cannot provide any guaranteed bandwidth with 4G like we can with satellite, but we can pool GBytes between several vehicles where this is desireable. We can also provide bothe 4G LTE and satellite on vehicles that need high resiliance.

New Developments

Transportable satellite systems do require you to stay in one place. There are systems that allow you to move such as inmarsat, but these are very epensive and not high speed broadband. New flat panel dishes are now available which will dispense with moving motorised dishes promising faster access to the satellite and access while on the move. We are continually monitoring developments and will be able to advise you whether these provide better solutions for your needs.

Of course, 4G does allow you to have broadband on the move where required and combining this with satellite is a good soluton for many. 4G is covering more areas and we hope will give close to 1005 coverage in the UK. With the new 5G services promised in the 2020s we hope that the transportable landscape will obtail a new dimension in very high speed communications that will increase the applicatiosn that can be supported.
