Speedcast to Provide O3b MEO Ka-band Services for Land-Based Production Platform in West Africa 

Speedcast International Limited (ASX: SDA), the world's most trusted provider of highly reliable, fully managed, remote communication and IT solutions, today announced that the company has been selected to provide Middle Earth Orbit (MEO) Ka-band managed communications services to a production asset owned and operated by a major U.S.-based operator in Equatorial Guinea on Bioko Island, off the coast of West Africa.

Speedcast will leverage satellite Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) connectivity to deliver communications between the production asset and the customer's corporate network.

Speedcast is currently supporting this site by providing manpower services for VSAT service and microwave link maintenance as well as IT desktop and LAN support, and will continue to do so for the new contract as well.

“Adding a new high-speed Ka-band solution that meets the customer's low-latency requirements in Equatorial Guinea demonstrates Speedcast's scale and value proposition to the energy market,” said Keith Johnson, EVP of Energy, Speedcast. “We are proud that our customers trust our ability to develop innovative solutions using the newest available technologies and partnerships to help provide the network they need, even in remote locations with stringent regulations.”
