We have spent decades developing and refining best-in-class processes and procedures, designed to maximize up-time and the overall customer experience.

How We Support You

The ground segment is evolving to adapt to significantly higher levels of data downlink in the coming years. Ground stations for data reception can represent a significant capex investment for many players, especially if providing global coverage. “Ground as a Service” represents a cost-effective alternative to building and owning satellite infrastructure, with services such as ground station network on a pay-as-you-go basis, to teleport optimizations, consolidations, or relocations in the case of customers who already own infrastructure. Services are tailored to the universe of operators and new entrants with limited resources alike.
