Intelsat, Telespazio and Hughes Network Systems Europe are teaming up for the launch of a new satellite broadband service platform to provide high-quality broadband IP connectivity for Italian corporations in Eastern Europe. Each location will be equipped with a Hughes VSAT to access the satellite broadband service.
According to the companies, Intelsat is providing capacity on its IS-901 satellite; Telespazio (Finmeccanica/Alcatel) is providing the internet backbonbe connectivity and managing operations from Fucino, Italy; and Hughes is supplying the newly-launched HN7000S product platform with DVB-S2 including a Network Operations Center (NOC) and broadband satellite routers, in addition to other services.
End-user services will be marketed through Telespazio's and Hughes' retail service provider sales chains.
The companies said the new service platform will provide integrated networks to enterprises incorporating fast internet access, data and voice links, VoIP and VPN solutions, supplying corporations with broadband connectivity where terrestrial infrastructure is not available.
