Independent service provider of satellite communications, NSSLGlobal has opened a new teleport at the Perth International Telecommunications Centre, Perth, Australia.
The additional hub allows NSSLGlobal to extend its existing VSAT Ku-Band network in the South Pacific region to cover Australia and New Zealand, helping the company meet customer demand for a local point of presence in the growing Australasian market.
The teleport’s first operational beam will be Eutelsat’s E172a South Pacific satellite beam, which will be integrated into NSSLGlobal’s DVBS2-RCS2 network. This latest extension makes NSSLGlobal’s Cruise-IP and Broad-IP services deliver the most comprehensive coverage in the industry, encompassing six teleports and 20 satellite beams.
The E172a beam has been introduced to meet the high demand from the global maritime and super yacht markets for seamless service across Australasia with additional beam/hub duplication for redundancy as well as to eliminate blockage. It will also provide a meet me point for Australian headquartered customers in the maritime, oil and gas, mining and media markets who wish to terminate their satellite global connection in Australia.
NSSLGlobal Managing Director Sally-Anne Ray explains that their investment in a new teleport in Australia shows their commitment to their customers in Asia and Australasia, and comes on top of their sales and support office in Singapore.
The Perth teleport is now open and the E172a South Pacific beam is live and available to all existing and new customers.
