SpaceBridge has won a new contract with Axess Networks, the company announced Aug. 12. Axess Networks will use SpaceBridge technology to provide a high-speed broadband trunk for community internet access distribution on the Santa Cruz Island in Galápagos, Ecuador.

The SpaceBridge SBM-90X extreme broadband high-speed modem was chosen for this mission due to its strong performance in areas such as single channel per carrier (SCPC), and for the implementation of dedicated bandwidth. SpaceBridge provided its infrastructure to build a PTP SCPC link with the SBM-90X.

“This implementation was a great challenge but also a great satisfaction. Being able to provide this service with stability, with a new design of the access mode and with wide operating margins, required all our experience and knowledge. From Axess we hope that this new node will allow us to continue growing and helping to connect in the Galapagos Islands.” German Perez, Product and Solution Design Director, Axess Americas, said in a statement.
