Eutelsat’s KA-SAT satellite to be used for mobile office, critical communication services for business customersrn

Eutelsat has signed a distribution agreement with Wireless Innovation, a provider of end-to-end wireless communication services, enabling it to use Eutelsat’s KA-SAT high-throughput satellite (HTS). The satellite will be used to provide critical communication services and connectivity for temporary and mobile offices to the utilities, renewables, construction, asset management and military sectors in Europe.

Wireless Innovation specialises in providing satellite and radio-based SCADA/telemetry backhaul solutions to the United Kingdom and global electricity, water, and oil and gas companies. Its team of data communications experts is active in over 100 countries, offering consultancy, design, installation, support and billing to its customer base.

“Eutelsat’s KA-SAT gives us the flexibility to provide our customers with instant access to high-speed broadband and data communications services anywhere across Europe. This capability is essential in core markets where operations often take place in remote environments. We have already begun to use the KA-SAT service to meet customer demand and we are building a range of tailored communications solutions for our customers around the service,” says Phil Rouse, Managing Director at Wireless Innovation.

KA-SAT, the first HTS in Europe, is a new generation of multi-spotbeam, high capacity satellite optimised for broadband communications. Its spotbeam configuration enables frequencies to be reused 20 times and takes total satellite throughput to beyond 90 Gbps. KA-SAT is able to offer high bandwidth and operate with small, competitively-priced end user terminals. It allows businesses in remote or low internet connectivity areas to quickly and effectively establish data services and scale them to meet their needs.
