Optus And Ursys Partner For Remote Area Services
Optus Satellite has partnered with satellite-based voice and data communications provider Ursys for the delivery of telecommunications services to remote and rural areas.
Under the wholesale relationship, Ursys will utilise dedicated satellite capacity on Optus’ D2 satellite, as well as access to third-party international satellite providers, with Ursys to also utilise Optus’ teleport facilities at Belrose, north of Sydney, and the telco’s wider infrastructure.
Optus Satellite vice president Paul Sheridan stated that the partnership is significant as it “focuses on joint go-to-market opportunities within the targeted LTE, SCADA [supervisory control and data acquisition] and unique network industries”.
“This exciting new relationship builds on the deep experience of both Ursys and Optus Satellite to meet demands coming from the market for a complete solution, particularly where more than just a simple broadband connection is required,” Sheridan commented.
Grahame Cover, Ursys CEO, stated that the partnership will “redefine services and offer bespoke solutions to remote business customers with specific network requirements”.
