Talos International and our communications partners offer mission-critical hand-held radios, teleports, satellite communication systems, unmanned vehicle payloads, and wireless backhaul network solutions and services to meet our customer’s commercial enterprise, first responder, and government voice, video, and data needs.
We apply a flexible network planning methodology that allows newly delivered communication systems to adapt to next-generation networks, and accommodate a growing number of new information and communications technology-enabled services and applications.
Our engineering team is skilled in surveying, designing, installing, testing, and optimizing wireless topologies, and is trained in various network protocols including CDMA, PCS, GSM, iDEN, and LTE. We work with our customers to define precise requirements and customize each solution to meet our customers’ specific communication needs.
Talos International’s employees have significant experience in the test and evaluation (T&E) of government and commercial programs. We understand the fundamental purpose of T&E is to verify and validate performance capabilities, and determine whether systems are operationally effective, suitable, survivable, and safe for intended use. Our T&E services include test management, test plan preparation, testing, test analysis, and test reporting.
Talos International provides training support services, including the planning, analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation of curricula. We provide our customers with professional and experienced training managers and curricula development teams capable of developing and supervising mission-focused computer-based training, instructor-led training, and train-the-trainer instructional services in the language required.
Our satellite networks will support mission critical business applications with secure, high-speed connections as global connectivity is a must-have in today’s business environment. Talos International and our partners design and install two classes of satellite communications solutions: Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) and Telecommunications Port (teleport). Each provides a different level of communications infrastructure for local and global enterprise networks.
A teleport is a satellite ground station that functions as a hub connecting a satellite or geocentric orbital network with terrestrial telecommunications networks, delivering information and entertainment for media and network companies, multinational corporations, Internet Service Providers (ISP), and government agencies. The satellite bandwidth provided to the teleport can range from 150 Mbps to 1 Gbps uplink and 450 Mbps to 5 Gbps downlink. This allows a mix of dedicated bandwidth to support on-site enterprise services and additional bandwidth that can be purchased and then sold to customers for profit.
VSAT is a two-way satellite ground station terminal that accesses geostationary satellite spacecraft to pass voice, video, and data signals, with a dish antenna that ranges from 90 centimeters to 3 meters. VSAT typically provides customers with 64 Kilobits per second to 4 Megabits per second of bandwidth. VSATs have very few active components, are easy to install and maintain, and light weight (40-200 pounds). Once manually aligned to the satellite, they generally operate autonomously.
