Objectives of the service

The objective of this project is to develop a Satellite modem for Internet access in rural areas with the DVB-S2 technology. The product will compliment all existing ADSL solutions. Where it is too expensive and /or infrastructure for broadband will never be built, the Forsway modem offers a cost effective, easy to use solution.


The overall duration of the project is 6 months and all of the work will be carried out directly by Forsway and 27M technologies staff.


The Forsway S2 will be developed using the latest technology including:

  1. DVB-S2 technology (8PSK, CCM),
  2. Return path via GPRS/EDGE mobile technology,
  3. In-built graphical user interface,
  4. USB 2.0 for external storage of pushed data content,
  5. Possibility to use WLAN connectivity.
