Telstra Nabs Globecast
Telstra’s global sales group MD Martijn Blanken said the acquisition would involve developing deeper capabilities in media services.
“Our broadcasting customers increasingly require live distribution of content from a diverse range of global content providers,” he said. “Globecast Australia has a distinctive reputation for the delivery of media services, primarily over satellite platforms.
“Its strong linkages between its domestic networking capabilities and international points of media connectivity fit with our strategy of providing global media networking capabilities.”
