SURREY, UK – NSSLGlobal has added two new satellite beams to improve the quality and geographical reach of its global VSAT network. The additional beams will provide customers in the Nordics, Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, and the Far East with better coverage, said NSSLGlobal.
The Telenor Thor 6 Nordic beam, positioned 1° West, is one addition to NSSLGlobal’s existing VSAT network. It will operate from NSSLGlobal’s Norwegian teleport. It will improve connectivity for customers from Svalbard and Iceland to France and Romania, covering the majority of Europe.
The Eutelsat 70B, positioned 70.5° East, will operate from NSSLGlobal’s Cyprus teleport, and replaces the existing ABS2 beam. This will allow vessels travelling between Europe and the Far East via the Suez Canal to stay connected via one beam for their entire journey, rather than switching between different beams.
The introduction of the two new beams provides NSSLGlobal customers access to higher levels of bandwidth, faster broadband, and more reliable voice/data communications at sea and on land, the company said.
The beams were operational as of Sept. 1.
