Low Earth orbit satellite operator OneWeb has announced a new Canadian distribution partner, Galaxy Broadband, to deliver OneWeb’s high-speed, low-latency communications services across Canada and the wider Arctic region.
A press release states: ‘Supported by a global network of gateways and user terminals, OneWeb’s global connectivity platform will provide high-bandwidth and low-latency connectivity to expand Galaxy’s existing SD-WAN connectivity capabilities in and across Canada. The partnership will enable a fibre-like experience to benefit end users, offering internet access no matter where users are. OneWeb’s partnership with Galaxy will focus on expanding bandwidth for a variety of industries such as Mining, Oil and Gas, Utilities, Construction, and Community Aggregation which will bring a range of benefits including improving corporate efficiency, health and safety requirements, asset tracking, environmental monitoring and new operational applications while also helping remote workers better connect with their families and loved ones back home. Utilising the power of OneWeb’s network, Galaxy can augment its existing SD-WAN of GEO satellite or Microwave connectivity by adding low-latency service.’
