Proprietary Technology

Imagine you are in the port of St Tropez in the middle of the Summer streaming a movie relying solely on 4G. If you happened to be lucky enough to have a good SIM card that works well while roaming you may succeed to see the most interesting part… until the connection interrupts. Here is how how we solved that problem for you, so you can continue watching (and reading) great country-specific content:

Signal quality of every 4G connection constantly fluctuates. For example, chances are your mobile phone’s connection is not the same at all times. Sometimes it is stronger, sometimes weaker. Such fluctuations may happen within seconds, and limit internet speed possible if only one SIM card is used.

These fluctuations happen because the cellular tower your SIM card connects to is constantly managing thousands of other connections (from other mobile phones etc) and allocates its recourses to each sim card the best it can. However, if you have two mobiles next to each other, even if they connect to the same tower – chances are one mobile would have a stronger connection than the other.

In addition, if you use the same scenario but allow one of the phones to continuously select the strongest network and the strongest tower from any cellular provider within the device’s reach, that phone will provide a more reliable faster internet speed (especially while roaming). And that is exactly what each modem within the Meridian 4G device does.

Moreover, our technology constantly monitors each SIM card’s connection quality and allows to allocate more load to the stronger connection(s) out of the 4. However, it does not simply put all the load to one or two SIM cards. Instead it breaks the user’s request down into thousands of packets and sends it securely via all 4 sim cards utilizing full potential of every connection, at all times. The result is the aggregated signal that is many times stronger than 4 mobile phones (modems) put together (which is how mass-market 4G routers work).

Installation onboard M/Y AL MIRQAB: aggregatorAggregator is the main device required, it has 4 SIM card slots and can be used with or without amplifiers. and 2 amplifiersAmplifiers are optional and allow to extend the coverage offshore from 6nm up to 25nm offshore. We recommend using two 4G antennas on each side of the mast to avoid mast blockage, so 1 amplifier for each 4G antenna..
