EMC Opens Satellite Connection Demo in Houston
Emerging Markets Communications (EMC) expands its operations in Houston by opening a new office and technology demo center.
The new office is located in Houston’s Energy Corridor, at 3151 Briarpark, Suite 250, Houston, Texas, 77042 and the technology demo center where oil and gas companies can test their applications on our global satellite network for both offshore and onshore field connectivity requirements. The demo is also used to showcase EMC’s patented technology and end-user applications that drive efficiency, increase reliability and lower-costs of global satellite connectivity services.
Test Drive EMC’s C-Band Satellite Network
The technology demo center allows users to connect to our C-Band Satellite Network, using a 2.4 meter antenna, mounted on the roof of the office building. Schedule a session to visit EMC’s Houston office and bring your own laptop or device to connect to the satellite network!
Connect to Your Remote Site on EMC’s Global Satellite Network from Houston
Companies can also test EMC’s satellite network from Houston to any global remote site in the demo room for up to three weeks. EMC engineers design a pilot network and collaborate with your technical teams to commission the bandwidth to a designated field site(s), such as an offshore rig or platform.
Experience Faster Internet Browsing Over Satellite With SpeedNet®
Surf the web using EMC’s satellite connectivity and its patented SpeedNet® browser. It performs 66 percent faster than Google, Yahoo and Bing over satellite, and loads content and video up to 88 percent quicker.
SpeedNet® is an integral part of EMC’s crew welfare services and improves the efficiency of allocated bandwidth to crew members, without increasing data rates. As a result, oil and gas companies can lower costs of their overall crew welfare services by leveraging SpeedNet®.
Affordable High Definition Telepresence System Over Satellite
Our Houston technology demo also features HD Connect®, another patented technology, providing high definition tele-presence service operating over a satellite connection.
HD Connect enables high-quality, low-jitter and reliable tele-presence, leveraging the efficiency benefits of multicasting and Cisco’s leading technology. EMC’s HD Connect® service plans allow for on-demand usage, saving customers money by only paying for what they use.
Many customers use HD Connect for large scale video conferences in high-risk security environments, where travel is restricted and dangerous. Additional applications for HD Connect include Doctor On-Board and security monitoring in the field.
