Hispasat has signed a multi-year agreement with GlobalSat to offer broadband communications services for small and medium-sized companies in Mexico. The agreement will allow high quality satellite-based connectivity business solutions to be offered to SMEs from sectors such as, banking, energy, mining, petroleum, agricultural, among others, that want to meet their current broadband needs and cannot find appropriate technological options on the market. These solutions are also suitable for government services.

The services in the Ka band will be provided through the Amazonas 5 satellite, which started operating last November; while the Ku band comes from Amazonas 3, launched in 2013. Both are located in the 61 degrees west orbital position and have coverage for several Latin American countries, including Mexico.

In order to provide the services, the companies will work with the ground station for the Ka band that Hispasat is installing in Ixtlahuaca (State of Mexico), together with GlobalSat’s ground station for the Ku band located in Tijuana (Baja California), which will allow flexible and robust solutions to be offered at lower costs, tailored for the companies throughout the republic.
