OneWeb and IP Access International ink distribution deal in US

OneWeb, the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite communications company, and IP Access International have inked a distribution partnership agreement to deliver high-speed, low-latency broadband connectivity across the US.

IP Access International will blend OneWeb’s satellite services with all major terrestrial cellular providers in the US, providing mobile communications through a single service plan and support center.

This partnership makes OneWeb’s LEO constellation the first to be integrated into IP Access International’s SuperGIG service, a connectivity solution designed specifically for public safety and enterprise critical mobile operations that seamlessly aggregates terrestrial and space-based networks.

The integration aims to deliver robust connectivity in rural areas outside of cellular coverage areas, as well as in urban locations affected by events such as natural disasters and other conditions impacting connectivity.

“Space-based communications have been a cornerstone of resilient communications for decades, but now with the OneWeb LEO constellation, our SuperGIG™ solution will be even faster with lower latency. This will be a game-changer for our clients,” said Bryan Hill, CEO of IP Access.

Stephen Beynon, OneWeb’s chief commercial officer, said: “Adding OneWeb’s high-performance, low-latency connectivity to the IP Access International portfolio gives customers a new and even more robust solution to ensure they meet their mission, regardless of local connectivity services currently in place.”
