Measat rolls out portable satellite service with Mont Aero

Measat will provide high-speed broadband, enabling field engineers to complete complex installations in remote onshore or offshore sites with greater efficiency.

Measat and Mont Aero, a technology solutions company that specialises in the oil and gas and maritime industries, have signed a contract for the provision of a portable Communications-on-the-Pause (COTP) service.

The portable COTP service is a quick-to-deploy mobile satellite broadband solution that enables users to utilise high-speed broadband where broadband coverage is lacking. The lightweight, transportable, electronically steered antenna empowers field engineers to perform complex tasks that require live communication or prompt exchange of information via Measat’s high-speed broadband connectivity, without having to painstakingly install antennas in each location.

Commenting on the partnership, Ganendra Selvaraj, Chief Commercial Officer at Measat, said: “We are delighted to partner with Mont Aero to deploy our portable COTP service in Malaysia. Our growing portfolio of end-to-end Mobility Managed Services reinforces Measat’s position as Malaysia’s leading and preferred satellite solutions provider, with a comprehensive suite of services for diverse industries. Building on our success in connecting rural communities and businesses in locations lacking terrestrial internet coverage, we are now expanding our solutions and services offerings, both onshore and offshore.”

Alimin Hafizi Aminudin, Managing Director, Mont Aero, added: “As a technology solutions provider with agile capacity requirements to meet our clients’ needs, we require technological support to enable our personnel to work more efficiently. With Measat’s portable COTP service, our personnel can coordinate live between teams in the field, enabling them to complete complex installations even in remote onshore or offshore sites with greater efficiency. This ultimately enhances customer satisfaction.”

Measat’s Mobility Managed Bandwidth Services are available across the entire fleet of Measat satellites.
