[SatNews] German satellite service provider atrexx has confirmed that the Company is finalizing its largest ground services contract, aimed at connecting a major European country's embassy sites in Africa and the Middle East with VSAT technology via satellite.
The dispersed nature of embassy buildings means that they are often difficult to connect by terrestrial means and therefore VSAT provides governments with the ideal communication solution as it is cost-effective, scalable and can be deployed anywhere. Serving as sub-contractor to the satellite service provider, atrexx is currently completing installation works that include the setting up of redundant antennas at each site in Ku- and C-band.
The company has experienced a surge in demand for ground services that include all supporting services such as site survey, choice of antenna location, planning of installation, installation itself, commissioning, as well as preventive and corrective maintenance. As a response to this demand, atrexx has focused on standardizing its offerings and has developed specific products that can enable them to deliver best-in-class products to their clients. Over the past few years, atrexx has placed great emphasis on recruiting and training many installers in Africa and Asia, with a special focus on the African Continent and the Middle East so that projects like the one above can be handled no matter where in the world they are required.
