In a MANAGED subscription, your equipment package remains at our facility in a ready-to-deploy state. When you request usage of your kit, one of our technicians will deploy with your kit to the site of your choice and set up your equipment.
In a SELF-DEPLOY subscription, a pre-configured, ready-to-deploy auto-acquisition satellite antenna is located at your facility and can quickly and easily be setup and deployed by your team. You get to choose whether you want a case-based portable antenna or one mounted to a vehicle or trailer.

Whether dedicated and at your site, or managed at our facility, your equipment is 100% guaranteed to always be ready-to-deploy.
