6 Nov 2021 By OUR CORRESPONDENT

Muscat – SpaceBridge, a Montreal, Canada, based company developing satellite network equipment, has announced the successful delivery of an HTS Multiple Spot Beam (MSB) and Ka-Band Broadband VSAT Network to Oman’s state-run Space Communication Technologies (SCT), the company said.

SpaceBridge Inc is a manufacturer of High Throughput Satellite (HTS)/VHTS Broadband VSAT Satellite Network Platforms connecting close to 2,000 locations globally.

This provides multi-service Internet connectivity over the SpaceBridge WaveSwitch multi-waveform platform.

The network delivers services over Arabsat HTS Ka Satellite enabling communities, enterprises, mobile network operators, maritime, consumers, government and military entities to transmit real-time application data over satellite.

‘SpaceBridge network architecture is supporting simultaneously layer two and layer three. In fact, the network delivered in compliance with Article 44 of the telecommunications regulatory law of Oman. SpaceBridge conducts a transfer of knowledge to the SCT through diligent virtual and in-person training sessions along with in-country managed services, stated a press release.

The network proved its resilience when cyclone Shaheen made landfall in Oman on October 3, stated the company.

‘SpaceBridge’s VSAT Network remained connected using its WaveSwitch technology. It withstood despite the widespread flooding, heavy rains and winds of up to 150km per hour along Oman’s northern coast.’

SpaceBridge signed a contract with SCT in June 2020 to supply an HTS MSB Broadband VSAT Network.

SCT was established with a mission of spearheading the National Satellite Programme initiative by building national satellite communications infrastructure and developing required capabilities to serve public and private sectors, coping with their immediate long-term telecommunication needs.
