Corporate satellite data network for Shell petrol station
“Datagroup” built the corporate data network for Shell petrol station network in Ukraine in record time. The Network is deployed on the basis of the satellite technology iDirect 5300 and connects 147 filling stations throughout Ukraine into one unit. IDirect technology is one of the most effective satellite VSAT systems on the market and ensures the efficient use of passband both on the satellite segment and at the level of IP-protocol.
The construction of the new data exchange infrastructure based on satellite technology will allow systematizing of the information flows between the network of filling stations and the head office: to develop a "card" loyalty program, to monitor residual fuel, and to maintain remote control as a whole. Within the framework of the construction of a corporate network for Shell gas station, the ground circuit data transmission channel was organized, this channel connects the head office of Shell in Kiev with the central satellite station “Datagroup”, and client’s server hardware is placed in the Data-center of the company.
The Satellite communication between the network of filling stations and the central satellite station of “Datagroup” is organized at a speed of 1 Mbit/s.
