OneWeb, the global satellite-powered communications company with a mission to bring connectivity to everyone, everywhere has signed agreement with Talia and Intermatica.
OneWeb has signed an agreement to provide Talia, the market-leading teleport, satellite and network operator, with a fast, affordable service for the Quika platform to offer consumer broadband internet and community WiFi across a number of regions including Africa and the Middle East. OneWeb’s next generation global satellite broadband service will come on stream for Talia starting in 2021, with virtually all of Talia’s markets activated by 2023.
OneWeb has also contracted with Intermatica, global carrier and solution provider of broadband and VoIP telecommunications services for businesses in Europe.
Alan Afrasiab, President and CEO, Talia said, “Talia continues to be at the forefront of the satellite industry, continually looking ahead and implementing the very latest technologies available in the market for our customers. We are delighted to be working with OneWeb who will provide us with the high-speed broadband coverage for the Quika service, which we need to reach all our customers, removing geographic, speed and latency barriers.”
Claudio Castellani, President and CEO, Intermatica said, “Our enterprise customers demand that we stay at the leading edge of connectivity solutions and through this collaboration with OneWeb, we can further extend our service to installations in even the most remote locations, providing an unparalleled solution in terms of quality and performance. OneWeb’s system changes the current scenario of telecommunications, supplying a service bridging the gap between terrestrial and satellite broadband services, with a very limited latency, huge bandwidth and guaranteeing the fastest deployment; A revolution our customers are soon going to benefit from.”
With OneWeb’s global communications network, customers will take advantage of high speed, low latency broadband services which go beyond the limits of existing infrastructure – for example, to remote, rural communities and for businesses and industries that rely on global connectivity, such as aviation, maritime, automotive and locomotives. With latency less than 50 milliseconds, OneWeb’s customers will have service capable of meeting a range of emerging applications that require real-time communication and collaboration.
Nicolas Zibell, Chief Commercial Officer, OneWeb said, “Bringing on board Talia and Intermatica at the very start of our commercialisation phase demonstrates the pent-up demand for our global coverage solution and showcases how companies are thinking ahead to meet the future IoT and 5G demands of their customers as well. OneWeb offers simple product, service and pricing options to ensure that it’s easy for clients, resellers and operators to do business with us.”
OneWeb, which manufactures satellites through its joint venture with Airbus, will announce on 27 February the launch of its first six satellites. OneWeb will commence the largest satellite launch campaign in history to create a constellation of over 600 satellites providing full global commercial broadband coverage by 2021.
