The deal will see a continuation of a relationship that has existed for more than 15 years through the European footprint of Hispasat’s H30W-6 satellite.
It includes a number of services including establishing remote connectivity for corporate networks in companies with headquarters located in areas with insufficient or non-existent terrestrial coverage, using satellites as a backup solution, supervising remote industrial or data measurement processes, providing emergency solutions that require connectivity in movement, broadcasting multimedia contents and applications linked to shopping centres and banking institutions.
The satellite operator noted that the deal serves to complement one agreed last year to renew the space capacity leasing on the H30W-6 satellite.
Ignacio Sanchis, Hispasat CCO, said: “We are very pleased that Telefónica, the leading operator in the market, has shown its trust in Hispasat for its offering of corporate services and has thus consolidated the work that we have been developing jointly for a long time. Due to its efficiency, global coverage, and rapid roll out, satellites are an ideal tool for solutions like the ones that Telefónica offers its corporate and public clients in places far removed from urban centres.”
Francisco Panduro, EMEA sales manager of Telefónica Servicios Audiovisuales, said: “Thanks to Hispasat’s satellite capacity and the teleport that Telefónica owns in Armuña de Tajuña, we are capable of offering professional satellite services based on the specific needs of each of our clients in conjunction with the other technologies that the company offers, which provides added value to all our solutions.”
