SatGate allocates and manages higher rate CIR capacity links (starting 512Kbps per each terminal) in a point-to-point mode using “carrier-in-carrier" technology. This method makes it possible for the transmitting and receiving signals to be set on a single working frequency, thus allowing considerable satellite segment’s price cuts and providing twice as low space segment rental possibility compared to the commonly used SCPC (single channel per carrier) technology. Most often SatGate Satellite Communications Holding provides such services to oil and gas companies.
