Hispasat and Ovzon Expand Connectivity Service to North America
After announcing a deal with the Repsol Foundation to develop technologies that will be applied to the reforestation sector to offset CO2 emissions, Hispasat plans to expand its joint satellite broadband solution with Ovzon to North America. The companies have been providing this service in Europe and Latin America since 2019.
This expansion of the collaboration between the two companies is the first capacity contract in North America to provide Ovzon’s services. The solution is available in a single service including the Ovzon T6 terminal and connectivity with a monthly fee. The Ovzon terminal is intended for government solutions, multimedia services and for security and emergency needs. Hispasat is providing its Ku-band capacity over Latin America, Europe, and now North America.
This new service is the latest in a series of recent options in which the Ovzon Service, including Ovzon portable terminal and Hispasat’s satellite capacity, has enabled solutions to be rolled out in demanding settings. For example, in Colombia, in collaboration with the service provider Bansat, the National Civil Registry will use the Ovzon terminals to provide portable connectivity to staff who need to travel to remote areas of the country to perform electronic administrative tasks for the local inhabitants.
