OneWeb has announced a partnership with Intellian to build user terminals designed specifically for remote enterprise networks, cellular backhaul expansion and remote connectivity needs.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The partnership represents a significant step-forward in the development of OneWeb’s system following the launch of its first satellites and its first customer announcements in February 2019. OneWeb now has six satellites in orbit and a range of antennas in place and is working to develop its portfolio of user terminals, ranging from compact flat panels to highly-efficient dual parabolics. All user terminals will be designed to serve a range of customer needs, market verticals and use cases.

Thee user terminals will help to close to gaps in unconnected areas and connect remote enterprises, as well as expand cellular backhaul capacity, which is essential for extending connectivity. The terminals will utilise dual-parabolic antennas to deliver cost-effective and efficient throughput making high-speed and low-latency services available in hard-to-reach areas and helping bridge the digital divide.

“This is an exciting moment for OneWeb as we expand and develop our user terminals with an extremely important partner”, said Adrian Steckel, CEO of OneWeb. “Our user terminals will always be designed with customer needs in-mind, ensuring we deliver a service they can trust. We’re delighted to be partnering with Intellian and this agreement marks a major step forward in our efforts to bridge the global digital divide.”

“Intellian is excited to be chosen by OneWeb with its fascinating vision and innovative LEO constellation”, said Eric Sung, CEO of Intellian. “We’re thrilled our design and manufacturing capabilities will help connect people in remote locations to this new Satellite ecosystem.”

OneWeb expects these terminals to be available for Commercial use in 2020.{/mprestriction}
