Optus Satellite and URSYS services, which specialises in remote area communications offerings, have announced that, following a competitive market review, URSYS iDirect VSAT services will be migrated to the Optus D2 satellite by December 2018.
Through its partnership with Optus, URSYS iDirect VSAT services will provide high quality broadband satellite communications, ideal for remote areas of Australia that are unable to connect with broadband services through regular means.
Paul Sheridan, Vice President of Optus Satellite said, “We pride ourselves in the continued delivery of critical satellite services to the highest standard, allowing partners such as URSYS to continue offering their customers improved end-user services and for us to retain our market leading position.
“We have a long relationship with URSYS and are pleased to be making this announcement, building on many years of experience and collaboration. We look forward to continuing to grow our relationship and work together to deliver exciting and innovative new products to market,” said Mr Sheridan.
URSYS has been operating iDirect based VSAT networks for more than 10 years, supporting hundreds of sites across Australia and internationally.
Patrick Duff, Chief Operating Officer of URSYS said, “Migrating hundreds of sites to a new satellite is no small feat, but with it will come a lot of wins that make a solid case for the project.
