SkyNet de Colombia Selects SpaceBridge to Renovate its Satellite Service Infrastructure

Montreal, Canada March 15, 2023 – SpaceBridge Inc., a designer and manufacturer of broadband VSAT platforms and satellite communications systems, today announced that one of Colombia’s leading satellite telecommunications service providers, SkyNet de Colombia, selected SpaceBridge technology as a satellite equipment provider to modernize its ground equipment infrastructure for satellite services delivery in Colombia.

SpaceBridge’s VSAT satellite platform ASAT II will allow SkyNet de Colombia to benefit from the use of DVB-S2X on the Forward Link and DVB-RCS2 on the Return Link, which will provide a significant improvement in spectral efficiency of the network. This will lead to substantial OPEX savings, allowing Skynet to be more competitive and face the new challenges of the current satellite market.

The SpaceBridge ASAT II platform has been selected to meet the needs of the most demanding customers, enabling Skynet to run multi-service applications. This includes 3G/4G and 5G Cellular Backhaul, one of Colombia’s high-growth vertical targets.

SpaceBridge’s WaveSwitch™ will allow for SkyNet to have a system that enables real-time, on-the-fly waveform orchestration that maximizes bandwidth efficiency and provides the best user experience. The system will dynamically assign the proper industry-leading RCSX™ waveform, including,  ASCPC™, MF-TDMA, SCPC DVBS2 and DVB-S2X access technologies based on the systems requirements.

“After a strict selection process, we are very pleased that SkyNet de Colombia chose SpaceBridge’s multi-service VSAT platform as the foundation for their future growth” said Javier Recio, SpaceBridge’s Chief Commercial Officer. Mr. Recio continued “The SpaceBridge technological excellence and unparalleled customer support provides key elements for the success of SkyNet’s high standards of quality of service and customer satisfaction.”

Camilo Olea, General Manager at SkyNet de Colombia, commented on the process: “As part of our continued network enhancement initiatives we are pleased to rely on SpaceBridge’s ASAT II platform to provide efficient and secure corporate branch connectivity, mobile backhaul and mission critical services. The platform based at our Bogota Teleport will be operational before June 2023, with high throughput C and Ku band satellites”.
