Eutelsat Communications has signed a distribution agreement with Wireless Innovation to enable it to use its KA-SAT High Throughput Satellite to provide critical communication services and connectivity for temporary and mobile offices to the utilities, renewables, construction, asset management and military sectors in Europe.

Wireless Innovation specialises in providing satellite and radio based SCADA/telemetry backhaul solutions to UK and global electricity, water, oil and gas companies. Its team of data communications experts is active in over 100 countries, offering consultancy, design, installation, support and billing to its customer base.

Phil Rouse, Managing Director at Wireless Innovation, said: “Eutelsat’s KA-SAT gives us the flexibility to provide our customers with instant access to high speed broadband and data communications services anywhere across Europe. This capability is essential in core markets where operations often take place in remote environments. We have already begun to use the KA-SAT service to meet customer demand and we are building a range of tailored communications solutions for our customers around the service. “

KA-SAT, the first High Throughput Satellite (HTS) in Europe is a new generation of multi-spotbeam, high capacity satellite optimised for broadband communications. Its spotbeam configuration enables frequencies to be reused 20 times and takes total satellite throughput to beyond 90 Gbps. KA-SAT is able to offer high bandwidth and operate with small, competitively-priced end user terminals. It allows businesses in remote or low Internet connectivity areas to quickly and effectively establish data services and scale them to meet their needs.
