XM Logistics was formed with the Re-deployable Satellite Communications System as an intricate part of the business. With Murray experiencing remote communications during his early days using HF radio, communicating with the help of the RFDS, the large brief case satellite phone, to the hand-held satellite phone and VSAT systems of last year.
Mineral exploration programs are often campaign based, running from one week to months at a remote site. Keeping in touch with business, family and friends is essential to a successful operation.
Welcome Starlink – A GAME CHANGER is the phrase being used for the remote business needs and it represents a big shift from the old, time consuming bulky VSAT systems.
XM Communications (in partnership with Nexion Networks) now provided two types of Starlink kit variations.
Rugged Redeployable kit
On the Move Travel kit
Both kits have no handheld phones included as most smartphones can use wifi calling. XM can provide a VOIP phone if requires for a small daily fee.
Starlink – everyone’s heard about it or using it, the low orbit systems provide high speeds with low latency broadband internet covering every inch or remote Australia.
