Get SAT and Hellas Sat have demonstrated satcom capabilities on Hellas Sat’s network. The companies said in a Thursday announcement that their partnership offers capability enhancements on Hellas Sat 4 satellite with coverage over Europe, the Middle East, and Southern Africa.

Using Get SAT’s MilliSAT-W terminal installed at Hellas Sat’s Kofinou, Cyprus Earth Station, and the Hellas Sat 4 Ku-Band satellite located at 39 degrees East, the companies created a link that exceeded expected parameters. The satellite, which began commercial operations in Q3 2019, provides capacity for applications including video, maritime connectivity, cellular backhaul, corporate networks and government services.

“Hellas Sat 4’s Ku-band has allowed us to fully demonstrate the capability of Get SAT’s exciting technologies. The cooperation between Get SAT and Hellas Sat technologies supports high data rates, adds value for their customers and enables us to pursue new potential users,” Get SAT CEO Kfir Benjamin said.
