Satellite communications (satcoms) face steep competition from terrestrial communications solutions. As fixed networks, such as cable and ADSL and wireless networks cover more of the globe, satcoms operators need to continually innovate and improve. A key challenge they face today is to understand the distinct role satcoms have to play as part of an integrated communications solution comprising fixed, wireless and satellite.
We help satellite communications providers in 3 key areas:
- We supply services and products to enable the seamless transition between terrestrial and satellite networks so users can enjoy the best experience in both worlds.
- We provide consultancy based on our deep heritage with downstream users of satellite communications (such as emergency services, government, defence, transport, utilities, media, oil and gas and finance) to help satcoms operators develop new strategies, services and value propositions into these markets.
- We help satcoms operators with their business IT so that can operate efficiently and effectively to stay competitive and cost effective, for example through advanced billing systems, business support, outsourcing and integration with ERP systems.
To all these areas we bring our extensive security and safety systems expertise. Our clients include some of the world’s leading satellite operators such as Paradigm Secure Communications running the Skynet 5 programme, Inmarsat, GlobalStar, and SES.
