How it Works

Bring your satellite communication indoors with the ASE ComCenter II Series. The ASE ComCenter II easily integrates into your building or vessel infrastructure using the POTS (RJ11) interface to connect to your PBX or standard analog phone and (optional) Privacy handset. For data usage, connect to the internet or the embedded web pages using the Ethernet data port.

For vessels, a common installation is to install the ComCenter near the bridge with the corded intelligent handset in close proximity to the captain, and then run the RJ11 interface into the main cabin terminated at an analog phone.

For resilience centers, a common installation has the ComCenter installed in the emergency room with the RJ11 interface connected into the backup PBX or emergency comms.

Simple networks also can be configured with the Privacy Handset and the Ethernet connected direct to a single laptop.
