Eutelsat launches ‘satellite network-as-a-service’ for VSAT providers

Satellite operator Eutelsat has launched an end-to-end managed connectivity offering called Eutelsat ADVANCE, adding a new ‘satellite network-as-a-service’ option for satcom providers to package and deliver to end users in maritime and other markets.

The Eutelsat ADVANCE service offering includes Ku-band capacity (or Ka-band for terrestrial enterprise customers), network interconnection, and a management portal and APIs for service providers and their clients. Terrestrial connectivity and satellite terminals are also provided as part of the package.

Tailored offerings are available for different markets, including maritime, as well as the aviation, enterprise and government sectors. The global Ku-band network product leverages ST Engineering’s Newtec Dialog platform, supporting application-use identification and prioritisation on the network.

“The current context has accentuated the need for worldwide connectivity, as more and more business processes migrate to the cloud. This is why we are launching Eutelsat ADVANCE, our new satellite network-as-a-service offer,” said Philippe Oliva, Chief Commercial Officer of Eutelsat.

“Through an innovative portfolio of globally managed services, optimising and sharing in-orbit resources in Ka and Ku-bands, terrestrial connectivity, the automation of data connectivity services, and a wide range of offerings tailored to specific markets, Eutelsat ADVANCE enhances our customers’ portfolios of service offerings in their markets.”
