OneWeb has announced Sat One as a distribution partner. Based in new Perth, Western Australia, Sat One will help to deliver OneWeb's high-speed, low-latency communications services in Australia.
Supported by a global network of gateways and user terminals, OneWeb's LEO platform will provide high-bandwidth connectivity to expand Sat One’s existing capabilities in Australia. The partnership will enable reliable internet access for end users, no matter how remotely located they are.
With the start of services in 2023, OneWeb's partnership with Sat One will focus on expanding bandwidth for a variety of industries such as mining, oil and gas. This will bring a range of benefits including improved productivity, health and safety, asset tracking, environmental monitoring and crew scheduling, while also helping remote employees stay connected.
Sat One also aims to extend its existing connectivity in local communities in hard-to-reach areas and through challenging weather conditions.
OneWeb VP APAC, David Thorn added: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Sat One. OneWeb’s aim is to help our partners meet their customers needs by integrating our network’s high-speed, low latency capabilities into their offering. This partnership will help us to expand our existing offering in Australia as we continue to bring quality connections that businesses can rely on across remote and challenging environments.”
Sat One Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Fairbairn, commented: “We are keen to leverage OneWeb’s LEO services and expand our existing remote connectivity capabilities, ensuring we can service our clients with low latency, high speed connectivity services from the sky no matter the location.
"LEO deployed in the remotest locations of Western Australia, will revolutionise how industries such as mining, oil and gas can leverage data from the earliest stage of remote site development to transform all aspects of operations and technology by improving operational technology and business application performance, health and safety of staff and reducing production costs.”
