Satcoms boost promised for South America

Satcoms boost promised for South America

A new agreement has been announced that aims to allow satellite service providers to access Spanish-speaking markets throughout South America.

Satellite service provider SatADSL and Andesat, which provides high value-added telecommunications solutions, have agreed a partnership that, the partners say, will enable flexible satellite services to be provided across a number of important markets.

Connecting to the Eutelsat 117W satellite, SatADSL will combine capacity from Andesat Argentina with its Cloud-based Service Delivery Platform (C-SDP) to provide a full range of flexible satellite services across Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Paraguay and parts of South Bolivia via Andesat’s teleports.

The new offering will bring corporate business connectivity to customers through SatADSL’s C-SDP, which, the company says, mitigates the high investment costs traditionally associated with deploying satellite services.

The company adds that the alliance also represents a significant landmark in its efforts to eradicate digital divides around the world and reinforces both companies’ commitments to stimulating social and economic growth via the provision of cost-effective internet access.

SatADSL designs and offers innovative satellite networking solutions to banks, microfinance, broadcasters, NGOs, governments, ISPs, telecom operators and other companies in remote areas or where terrestrial infrastructure is not reliable. 

Andesat Argentina S.A. is part of the Andesat Group. With three teleports located in Buenos Aires, Lima and Santiago de Chile, Andesat Group provides services on six satellites covering the entire Andean region, from the Caribbean to Antarctica.
