Norsat Adds 12 Languages to LinkControl Satellite Management Software

By Jai C.S. June 12, 2008
Intelligent satellite solutions provider Norsat International has released its advanced satellite acquisition and terminal control software, LinkControl, in twelve new languages.
Including this latest launch, the Norsat LinkControl is now available in fifteen different languages: Arabic, Bahasa, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish.
"A key component of our strategy is continuing to extend our geographic reach," says, Amiee Chan, President and CEO, Norsat International.
Since it was established in 1977, Norsat has been providing solutions that enable the transmission of data, audio and video via satellite in challenging environments. Norsat LinkControl is Norsat's proprietary user interface software that facilitates easy setup and diagnostic capabilities. It allows users to operate all aspects of a portable VSAT terminal from a single console.
One major advantage of this innovative software is that users can orient a three axis antenna subsystem (elevation, azimuth, polarization) towards a desired satellite, in even the most adverse and challenging conditions.
Chan added, "By offering LinkControl in a wide selection of languages, we believe we are well positioned to capitalize on the increasing demand for mobile satellite communications worldwide. Our LinkControl software is user-friendly and facilitates a seamless workflow, enabling us to deliver an unparalleled unified user experience."
LinkControl is also compatible with modems from Radyne, iDirect and Paradise and transmitters from Xicom.  The company plans to expand to support other modems and transmitters in the near future.
