[Via Satellite 10-23-2014] Globecomm, in partnership with a top Iraqi telecommunications provider, has completed a 158-Mb VSAT network that will support oil and gas exploration. A European-based client will use the network to connect its main exploration site, which has more than 5,000 residents, along with other locations.

The connectivity solution also includes 100-MB terrestrial microwave links. The managed service was installed by an Iraqi telecommunications supplier, and includes a Cisco call manager telephone system that terminates calls at Globecomm Europe’s Netherlands teleport. The completed dual-path network provides redundancy for voice, data and broadband connectivity. The Iraqi telecommunications supplier was contracted to provide all local technical support to the oil exploration company.
