Location and Data Logging for Assets (Vehicles/Locos/Ships/Machines) in remote areas is a challenge as there is no reliable GSM/GPRS Network coverage in those areas. Sevya partnered with Avantel to offer the path breaking solutions to overcome this challenge. This solution is based on sending the monitored data to a Satellite and receiving at a central location and later sending to Client Network through Internet. Avantel offers monthly schemes for Data Usage in this manner.
Following are some use cases for this solution:
Avantel has developed MSS Reporting terminals for ship to shore data communication through Indian satellites. These terminals are configured through a PC based work station with a user friendly GUI. The architecture is scalable and flexible to take care of future requirements. The data communication is highly secure with interface to a range of applications for command and control. These terminals work on a wide beam near omni directional antenna and hence are operational without satellite tracking and stabilization.
To send short messages from ship to main land, these terminals are ideal solution. They are mounted on the ship and use INSAT MSS payload to communicate to the destination through HUB. User in the ship can send the text or GPS messages through serial port to the terminals. Terminals can be configured in aloha, TDMA mode and Auto GPS Mode.

The MSS (Mobile Satellite Services) Reporting Terminal - Handheld operates in ALOHA mode and is suitable for sending short messages. Each reporting terminal with an unique ID code operates in S-band and transmits short messages up to 40 characters.
The Handheld Reporting Terminal has been designed to send edited alphanumeric messages up to 40-character length at low bit rate (600-baud rate). By using the Terminal, GPS messages can also be forwarded by E-mail to predefined destination through MSS Hub.
The terminal consists of MSS transmitter (Synthesized Modulator and SSPA), Message Generator card, GPS receiver, Antennas (S-band & L-band) and a rechargeable Battery.
