“As an APN Advanced Consulting Partner, our customers can leverage our expertise in service design and delivery for both on-premises and cloud strategies while enjoying savings in implementation time and overall cost. Speedcast’s products will also benefit from our expanded relationship with AWS, with an increased connection between edge and cloud for management of our products and for the actual workload and data processing.”

Speedcast has provided multiple customers with AWS cloud consulting and managed services support, including using AWS as enablement technology for Tempo, Speedcast’s Software as a Service (SaaS) enterprise communication and distance learning media solution; delivering connectivity to the cloud via AWS Direct Connect; and leveraging AWS to host data platforms for service management tools.

Speedcast continues to expand its reach with AWS within the North America, Central Europe, and Southeast Asia regions.

Customers in media, maritime, enterprise, energy, and government can interoperate cloud-based services with Speedcast’s satellite and fibre network to reduce capital expenditure and ramp up networks and services faster.

These hybrid solutions will reach beyond the edges of the network to remote facilities, ships, offshore platforms, and vehicles in motion around the world.
