This additional hub will allow NSSLGlobal to extend its existing VSAT Ku-Band network in the South Pacific region, covering Australia and New Zealand. The teleports first operational beam will be Eutelsat’s E172a South Pacific satellite beam. This will be integrated into NSSLGlobal’s DVBS2-RCS2 network.
The extension will also mean that the company’s Cruise-IP and Broad-IP services will encompass six teleports and 20 satellite beams.
The introduction of the E172a beam comes with a high demand from the global maritime and superyacht markets for seamless service across Australasia, with additional beam/hub duplication for redundancy and to eliminate blockage. It will also be a meet point for Australian head quartered customers in the maritime, oil and gas, mining and media markets who wish to terminate their satellite global connection in Australia.
Sally-Anne Ray, managing director at NSSLGlobal commented: “Our investment in a new teleport in Australia shows our commitment to our customers in Asia and Australasia and comes on top of our sales and support office in Singapore. We are committed to providing our customers and partners the highest quality satellite communications across the globe and will continue to add to the geographic reach of our network as satellites become available.”
The Perth teleport is now open and the E172a South Pacific beam is live and available to all existing and new customers.
