Under the multi-year agreement, ST Teleport will be Telespazio's preferred partner in Asia Pacific. ST Teleport is also the only teleport company in the domestic market to have partnered the world's biggest teleport operator to expand its international reach.
Telespazio's network of seven teleports including the largest commercial teleport facility in the world, the Fucino space centre with more than 170 antennas linked to major fibre point of presence (PoPs) around Europe, will connect with ST Teleport's earth station complex strategically located at the centre of major shipping routes in Singapore, creating synergistic business value to boost their service offerings to customers and the MOG industry.
The companies will leverage on each other's extensive complementary presence, industry expertise and technical resources to create cost-effective, secure and reliable global satellite communications solutions for their customers across different vertical markets.
ST Teleport's MOG customers can now enjoy previously unavailable global Ku-band coverage, fast and uninterrupted data transmission, and global technical support regardless of where they or their assets are located in the world. A comprehensive service coverage area over seven continents spanning Asia Pacific, Africa, the Americas, Europe and the Middle East with line of sight to more than 200 satellites will bring ultimate connectivity for mission-critical operations anywhere in the world. This multi-regional coverage is made possible by converging the companies' Ku-band beams around the world with automatic switching technology.
Telespazio, being a major global provider of geospatial application solutions and services in all areas relating to Earth observation, will bring new opportunities for ST Teleport to enter the geoinformation industry to offer customers services such as environmental monitoring, rush mapping in support to natural disaster management, specialised products for defence and intelligence, maritime surveillance, interferometric products for landslide and ground subsidence analysis, thematic mapping for agriculture and forestry.
The two companies are also in the initial stages of jointly developing other value-added satellite communication services to enhance their portfolio and capabilities which will be shared in the near future.
