SINGAPORE, June 20, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CommunicAsia 2011 -- ORBIT Communication Systems, Ltd., a subsidiary of Orbit Technologies Ltd. (TASE:ORBI),a Satellite Communications, Tracking & Telemetry, and Communications Management Systems provider, today announced that it will be showcasing its new AL‑7107 OrBand™ VSAT system at the CommunicAsia 2011 trade show starting today at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. ORBIT's experts will be available to discuss and demonstrate its latest VSAT offerings in Hall C, Booth #1V4-01.

The AL-7107 OrBand™ is the first of Orbit's new family of maritime VSAT systems to be rolled out. OrBand™ combines an extraordinarily compact 2.7m footprint with exceptional RF performance (equivalent to an industry-standard 2.4m system). The system supports extended C-Band and extended Ku-band frequencies, as well as several RF feeds featuring electrically switchable linear and circular polarizations. Due to its compact size, a pre-assembled and tested OrBand™ system and its radome fit into a 20-foot container, reducing shipping costs and allowing for dramatically shorter deployment times.

Fully compliant with all major satellite regulations for C-Band, OrBand™ is uniquely suited to address the broadband satellite communication needs of offshore oil & gas rigs/platforms and support vessels, naval vessels and commercial shipping, which depend more than ever on reliable always-on broadband for applications such as corporate networking and ERP, live video monitoring and surveillance, crew welfare/communication services and more. In order to meet the high availability requirements of mission-critical applications, OrBand™ features advanced remote access capabilities for monitoring and remote diagnostics.

"Our recently launched OrBand™ system is yet another example of our commitment to leveraging our technological and customer support leadership to provide end customers with reliable solutions that increase operational efficiencies and enhance crew productivity and morale," stated Yosi Albagli, President of Satellite Communications at ORBIT. "This breakthrough system has already been selected and delivered to a major Navy. Building on this success, we are confident that our recently introduced line of VSAT systems will open new opportunities for adoption of C-Band global satellite communications in the maritime industry."

ORBIT offers a diverse portfolio of advanced satellite communications solutions for maritime and land-based applications. ORBIT's systems are installed on over 3,300 marine platforms – from naval vessels to cargo ships, ocean liners and oil rigs - enabling TV reception and broadband IP connectivity for always-on applications such as Internet, video, telephony and more.
