Vizada to Supply VSAT Equipment, Lease Ku-band to Eulex Mission
Vizada Networks received a contract from the European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (Eulex) to supply VSAT hubs and remote terminals and lease Ku-band satellite transponder space, Vizada announced Dec. 7.
Vizada engineers will install the VSAT hub and the first remote site as well as supply training for Eulex engineers to carry out remaining remote terminal installations in order to complete the network.
Vizada beat out seven other bids to supply equipment for Eulex — the largest civilian mission ever launched under Europe’s Common Security and Defense Policy.
“Eulex has thousands of staff across Kosovo, so the organization has high level communication requirements in terms of capacity and reliability. We will provide a sophisticated solution using an enhanced iDirect foundation, which has been developed to offer high reliability and efficiency through advanced quality of service and bandwidth management systems,” Vizada Networks’ Defense Division Director Rune Kristiansen said in a statement.
