Talia signs major agreement with OneWeb to take LEO services
Talia signs the very first significant LEO network service agreement with OneWeb to provide affordable service on the Quika platform to Africa.
The new C-Band services covering Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States. This additional service utilizes the SES-4 satellite at 22°W and connects to the Talia MPLS network via the recently acquired iDirect hub located at COMSAT’s Southbury, Connecticut Teleport.
In addition, the new partnership with COMSAT, Inc. will provide teleport facilities to Talia’s existing Ku-band services running on the Eutelsat 113 WA satellite. With both C and Ku-Band services, customers will now benefit from greater choice and coverage.
Joel Allen, Managing Director of Talia International, who announced the new agreement added “The expansion of our platform to cover the Americas using SES-4 and iDirect’s ‘iQ series ready’ hub extends our capabilities and further supports our new affiliate, Talia Caribe Inc, in Guyana. I am delighted that this new partnership with COMSAT will allow us to further leverage their infrastructure with Talia’s go-to market strategy”.
“In the past, customers would come to COMSAT to connect equipment at multiple locations via satellite using our teleports. Today, the teleports do so much more. They act as a network node, data center, meet-me point and customer support center. They are no longer a place where satellite engineers focus on antennas, RF, baseband and facilities. Today’s teleports are now an extension of the customer’s business ensuring they are securely connected when needed. Our Partnership with Talia is a perfect fit for this new way of thinking.” said Chris Faletra, Director of Teleport Sales for COMSAT.
