[Via Satellite 02-17-2016] C-Com Satellite Systems has received approval to operate its Ka-band iNetVu mobile antenna products on Galaxy Broadband’s network. Galaxy Broadband provides enterprise grade VSAT services to remote areas across Canada and the United States.
C-Com deployed and tested the iNetVu Ka-98H system on the Galaxy F2 Ka-band network in January. The approval expands C-Com’s footprint for service in the most northern parts of Canada. Galaxy Broadband’s Ka-band network covers British Columbia, Northern Alberta, Northern Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Eastern Alaska. With Galaxy’s service offering, mobile clients in the Canadian Arctic can now have access to a network that can deliver 5 Mbps down and 2 Mbps up, rivaling speeds available in more southern locations of the country.
“We feel this is a very good opportunity for delivering mobile solutions throughout our Ka-band beam coverage, including the Canadian Arctic,” said Rick Hodgkinson, president and CEO of Galaxy Broadband. “We see many opportunities for remote exploration, temporary sites and government solutions using mobile antennas in combination with Galaxy’s high power Ka spot beams that deliver an enterprise high Quality of Service (QoS) network.”
