Australian telecommunications provider Macquarie Telecom is set to expand its broadband coverage after signing a contract with IPSTAR to supply the IPSTAR satellite service.
“Our business and government customers with regional or remote offices have told us they need secure, remote, high-speed IP connectivity,” said Glen Noble, general manager of data and hosting at Macquarie Telecom.
Noble said in a statement that the satellite service would be able to meet customer demands while integrating effectively into existing network infrastructure.
"The IPSTAR service has a footprint that covers the whole of Australia and the wireless technology eliminates potential broadband blackspots,” said Komson Seripapong, IPSTAR general manager for Australia and New Zealand.
The Macquarie Telecom IPSTAR Satellite Service will support voice and data IP applications including high-speed access to the Internet, email, data broadcast, VOIP and videoconferencing.
