SpaceBridge delivers Spot Beams HTS and Ka-band broadband satellite network to SCT

It offers services over the Arabsat HTS-Ka satellite to transmit real-time application data over satellite.

SpaceBridge Inc. a manufacturer of High Throughput Satellite (HTS)/VHTS Broadband VSAT Satellite Network Platforms, has announced the successful delivery of an HTS Multiple Spot Beam (MSB) and Ka-Band Broadband VSAT Network to Space Communication Technologies – SCT.

Close to 2000 locations were connected by SpaceBridge infrastructure to support the network which provides multi-service internet connectivity over WaveSwitch multi-waveform platform.

The network delivers services over the Arabsat HTS Ka satellite enabling communities, enterprises, mobile network operators (MNOs), maritime, consumers, government and military entities to transmit real-time application data over satellite. SpaceBridge network architecture is supporting layer 2 and layer 3 in compliance with article 44, from the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) of Oman. Transfer of knowledge from SpaceBridge to SCT is being accomplished through diligent virtual and in-person training sessions along with in-country managed services.

The network proved its resilience when Cyclone Shaheen made landfall in Oman on October 3, 2021. SpaceBridge’s VSAT Network remained connected using its WaveSwitch technology despite the widespread flooding, heavy rain and winds of up to 150km/h (93 mph) along Oman’s northern coast.
