Existing SADIS customers who want to access SADIS 2G

Important News:
The SADIS 2G Service will be withdrawn on 31 July 2016. All current users of SADIS 2G, who do not yet have access to Secure SADIS FTP are strongly encouraged to make preparations to migrate from SADIS 2G to Secure SADIS FTP at the earliest opportunity. Please contact the SADIS Manager, chris.tyson@metoffice.gov.uk for further information regarding the reasons behind the withdrawal of SADIS 2G, and how to obtain access to Secure SADIS FTP.

Existing customers will need to:

  • Contact the SADIS team to register your intent and schedule a move to the SADIS 2G service

Users will need to purchase the following components:

  • A SADIS 2G compatible receiver (available from iSat and Paradigm Communications)
  • A Vados Systems VadEDGE router.

Note 1: iSat and Paradigm Communications can provide a 'one-box' solution for the SADIS 2G receiver and VadEDGE router which incorporates the two components inside one physical unit. This unit can be supplied as a hardened case if required.

Note 2: Users located very close to the edge of the SADIS footprint may have to purchase a new low noise block (LNB) and/or antenna. Discuss these potential requirements with the hardware suppliers.

Note 3: Users may wish to consider purchasing their 2G hardware through their established software vendor.
