LONDON, Sept. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Speedcast International Limited (ASX: SDA), the world's most trusted provider of remote communication and IT solutions, announced that the company was honored by receiving the 2018 "Service Provider of the Year" award at the VSAT Stellar Awards during VSAT Global 2018 in London last week.
The Service Provider of the Year award recognizes Speedcast for developing its new industry-leading "network of networks", comprised of the world's most robust Ku-band network coupled with global capabilities on C-band, L-band, Ka-band and alternate access technologies such as 4G/LTE and terrestrial links. The combined network provides users with access to the largest global system of satellites available, combining wide beam satellites for coverage and narrower higher throughput beams for better efficiency and bigger bandwidth. This approach enhances flexibility and redundancy, allowing customers to meet their dynamic business needs and achieve a consistent user experience globally. Several industry-firsts in multiple segments have been achieved by the company this year leveraging its recently-upgraded world-class global "network of networks".
"Speedcast is extremely honored to be recognized by VSAT Global and the VSAT Stellar Awards committee as the Service Provider of the Year," says PJ Beylier, Speedcast CEO. "We have worked hard in 2018 to integrate our assets from the acquisitions over the past few years into this unique "network of networks", which leverages our many invaluable partnerships and assets to create a network that is flexible, redundant and addresses each customer's needs. Providing a great customer experience is at the forefront of our values and goals at Speedcast, and having the right network with global scale and options to serve our customers in all industry segments is the core of our success. We look forward to continuing the evolution of this network as the industry grows, leveraging all relevant access technologies to ensure that we remain agile and in touch with our customers' requirements."
