Globecomm Completes Deployment of 158 Mb VSAT Network Supporting Iraqi Oil Exploration for Major European Company

Hauppauge, NY – October 22, 2014 – Globecomm announced today the successful completion of a 158 Mb VSAT network, in partnership with one of the country’s leading telecommunications suppliers, for a European-based client that is conducting oil exploration at sites in Iraq.

The network supports dedicated Internet, data and voice connections to manage the complex exploration process and to provide crews with essential communications. The VSAT network is combined with 100 Mb terrestrial microwave links in a managed service that includes a Cisco call manager telephone system terminating calls at the Globecomm Europe teleport in the Netherlands. The design of the dual-path network provides complete redundancy for all sites.

“The main exploration site alone has a crew camp that supports 5000 people working and living there,” said Patrick Visser of Globecomm Europe. “Communications services will be heavily used for both business and private purposes, and it has been engineered to guarantee a high level of quality and reliability.”

One of Iraq’s leading telecommunications suppliers was contracted to install the remote sites, install and manage the terrestrial microwave link, and provide all local technical support to the oil exploration company. It is the kind of succesful partnership that Globecomm has created in multiple countries to bring advanced communications to fast-growing emerging markets.
