• Through this partnership, the two companies will work together on the roll out of satellite Wi-Fi hotspots in different regions of Brazil, using Hispasat's satellite capacity and Facebook’s Express Wi-Fi platform to reach underserved areas.
• The Wi-Fi hotspots allow local internet service providers to offer prepaid data packs in areas with limited resources and poor connectivity.
• hiSky and HISPASAT completed successful installation at Amazonas 5 gateway in Ixtlahuaca de Rayón (Mexico) of a hub to control hiSky’s terminals, the Smartellites.
• Several demonstrations in Mexico City showed the reliable and efficient Smartellite™ voice and data transmissions.
• Both companies signed an Agreement in 2017 to jointly commercialize this solution in Spain, Portugal, Latin America and North Africa.
Installed over a 30,000 m2 area that will allow the teleport to be expanded in the future, the new control centre features 33 antennas and cutting-edge technology, requiring an investment of more than 9 million Euros.
From Serviente, HISPAMAR will control the satellites from the Amazonas fleet, which offer a wide range of telecommunications services, such as broadcasting multimedia content, hosting corporate networks, providing backhaul for mobile telephones and ensuring high-performance connectivity in the Ka band available on the Amazonas 5 satellite.
The Spanish operator will present at its stand a technical solution in Las Vegas Show to complement the linear television with a catalogue of additional content that viewers can watch whenever they want without having to be connected to the Internet.
HISPASAT is positioned as an important operator in the television sphere by offering its clients advanced solutions for broadcasting multimedia contents.
El operador sigue fomentando el talento femenino en las áreas de ingeniería con el fin de
contar en el futuro con más mujeres que trabajen en este sector.
