HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Jan. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Speedcast International Limited (ASX: SDA), the world's most trusted provider of remote communication and IT solutions, today announced the completion of a 1,000-site managed service VSAT network offering superior communications and remote SCADA capabilities for a leading North American provider of midstream energy services to producers and consumers of natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGLs), crude oil, refined products and petrochemicals. Globecomm, Speedcast's recently completed acquisition, deployed this network, which spans 27 U.S. states and is managed from the primary network hub at Speedcast's teleport in Hauppauge, New York. Speedcast will provide network diversity services via a new hub located in Gulfdale, Texas.
"Speedcast is proud to be entrusted with the performance of this mission-critical network," said Keith Johnson, EVP of Energy for Speedcast. "The network supports the operational quality and safety of import/export terminals, processing plants, oil and gas storage and 50,000 miles of pipeline, and can scale for future growth. Our customer was looking for a partner with experience delivering similar solutions, strong operational and technical capabilities, and the ability to deliver significantly increased value."
In deploying the network, Globecomm replaced older VSAT equipment at all 1,000 locations with state-of-the-art, software-defined equipment to take advantage of next generation VSAT platform advancements for providing more throughput, greater bit/Hz performance and higher data rates. Under the contract, Speedcast will also provide hosted hub services, satellite bandwidth, network management, field service, maintenance and 24-hour technical support.
