[Via Satellite 06-04-2015] Singapore-based ST Teleport has formed a strategic partnership with Telespazio, a 67/33 Finmeccanica/Thales joint venture, to jointly establish a global Ku-band communications network for Maritime Oil and Gas (MOG) customers. Under the multi-year agreement, ST Teleport will be Telespazio’s preferred partner in the Asia-Pacific region.
Telespazio has a network of seven teleports, including the Fucino Space Centre, the largest commercial teleport facility in the world, with more than 170 antennas linked to major fiber Points of Presence (PoPs) around Europe. The company will connect with ST Teleport’s Earth station complex, which is located at the nexus of major shipping routes in Singapore.
Through the partnership, ST Teleport customers can access a service area with more than 200 satellites for global coverage, made possible by converging the companies’ Ku-band beams around the world with automatic switching technology. Telespazio will bring new opportunities for ST Teleport to enter the geoinformation industry and offer customers services such as environmental monitoring, rush mapping to support natural disaster management, and specialized products for defense, maritime surveillance, and more. The two companies are also in the initial stages of jointly developing other value-added satellite communication services to enhance their portfolio and capabilities that will be shared in the near future.
