OneWeb and Telespazio, a joint venture between Leonardo (67 per cent) and Thales (33 per cent), have signed a distribution partnership agreement to deliver OneWeb services to commercial and government customers in Europe.
“This agreement confirms the already running cooperation between OneWeb and Telespazio so far based on the hosting facilities and services at Telespazio’s teleports for OneWeb’s gateways in Europe and Latin America,” read a joint statement.
This specific agreement has been signed by Telespazio France, a Telespazio subsidiary with head office in Toulouse. As part of Telespazio Group, Telespazio France owns several key framework contracts in France to deliver managed services to the French Government, the French Ministry of Defence and other government departments to support end users engaged in critical missions.
OneWeb and Telespazio France say they will be focused on meeting customer expectations in terms of quality, performance and budgets to enable new usage, improve mobility and bring additional flexibility for end users. The partnership aims to further enhance Telespazio France’s high throughput and low latency and help to meet the new requirements and expectations of the company’s end users.
Dylan Browne, Head of Government Services at OneWeb said: “We are extremely proud to be in partnership with Telespazio France, given their outstanding experience and track-record. We look forward to introducing services together in the coming year.”
