Hungaro Digitel Kft. has been providing VSAT services for SCADA systems for over 20 years. The network of one of its largest clients was predominantly based on RS232 communication. In the past VSAT systems were able to directly serve RS232 requests (without the need for intermediate protocol conversion). However, the newer satellite platforms of the company providing better bandwidth are basically optimized for TCP/IP data transfer and the option of direct RS232 data transfer is not available. The RS232/IP converters of MOXA are ideally suited for the new VSAT platforms and for the client’s existing SCADA system that uses RS232 communication. This enables the continuity of service during platform transition.
