Meridian DOME Router
There are two installation options for the DOME Router system:
– it can be installed as a standalone dome provided by Meridian 5G
– it can also be installed as a panel version inside a yacht’s existing and operational VSAT or TVRO dome.
We will cover both options below.
Whichever version you choose will require an ethernet cable and power supply (AC or DC). You can find more information in the technical specification of each system.
There is also a video at the end showing the user interface of the system.
This version is built for installations inside yachts’ existing and operational VSAT or TVRO domes. Such installation does not create any interference with either dish as long as the dome is at least 130cm in diameter.
Such domes usually have power available and only require an ethernet cable run to the ship’s network (if there is no spare one there yet).
Here is a video showing an installation done by the crew inside a VSAT dome showing the dish in operation (please note the panels are usually fixed with brackets that you glue to the sides of the dome, as you can see in the next video below):

Here are examples showing in what domes some of our clients installed the panel version of the DOME router system
Our standalone dome is identical in performance to the panel version and is built for yachts that prefer or require a separate dome installation.
Here is a video showing the dome.
Here is a video showing the inside components of the dome. Please note you would not have to remove the cover of the dome to insert SIM cards. You can also order a SIM injector. In addition, the dome system has an eSim functionality which allows to seamlessly change cards as many operators are adopting that new technology.
