INTEGRA Network

Building on AST's experience in the satellite industry our flagship in-house developed network and data management solutionINTEGRA – puts you in direct control of your mission-critical activities enabling you to manage your costs, your way. 

Take real-time control of the applications using your satellite connection. Set traffic volume limits by application category or block some completely, to prioritise bandwidth for business-critical applications or stop your usage allowance being eaten up by the wrong things.
 
Allow your staff to access social media, but make sure it doesn’t get out of control. Block specific applications per category. Shape bandwidth by application category to preserve bandwidth or ease congestion and provide more consistent performance over time. As usage levels pass certain thresholds, select lower bandwidth levels for the download and upload.

INTEGRA See

INTEGRA See gives you precise, real-time visibility of your IP traffic at the application level, even when it’s encrypted. Identify the top 10 individual applications by usage and monitor the volume of traffic used for each of your AST IP services during the current month. 

INTEGRA See+

INTEGRA See+ offers additional functionality including; 3 months historical data visibility and the ability to view usage at application level.

INTEGRA Control

INTEGRA Control allows you to take real-time control of the applications using your satellite connection. Set traffic volume limits by application category, prioritise bandwidth for business-critical applications, preserve bandwidth and ease congestion, and benefit from more consistent performance.

INTEGRA Control Lite

INTEGRA Control Lite is also available for customers who do not require all the feature-rich capabilities of Control but need extended, real-time alerting and blocking capabilities at category level.

AST's broad range of solutions – from email and video communications to maintenance and reporting – has been tailored to consume minimum bandwidth while offering value for money, so you maximise your data allowance rather than requiring more.
