Sencinet Locks in 5-Year HTS Capacity Commitment on Telesat’s Telstar 19 VANTAGE Satellite
OTTAWA and SÃO PAULO, Brazil, Dec. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Telesat (NASDAQ and TSX: TSAT), one of the world’s largest and most innovative satellite operators, and Sencinet, a leading integrator of managed services and solutions, today announced Sencinet’s 5-year high-throughput satellite (HTS) capacity commitment to modernize and expand the Petrobras oil and gas connectivity network.
The innovative design of Telesat’s Telstar 19 VANTAGE satellite was a key differentiator in the managed solution that Sencinet designed to win the Petrobras connectivity network contract. A high-power Ku-band spot beam will provide very high throughputs at a lower cost-per-bit in the Brazilian Pre-salt oil region, where the greatest concentration of Petrobras’ data traffic occurs. This, combined with a wide regional Ku-beam on the same satellite will connect refineries and other enterprise locations throughout the country.
“We congratulate Sencinet on winning this competitive procurement and for making Telstar 19 VANTAGE a key component of its solution for Petrobras,” stated Glenn Katz, Telesat’s Chief Commercial Officer. “As valued partners for nearly two decades, Sencinet and Telesat have been collaborating and engineering cutting-edge solutions, creating important operational and commercial advantages for enterprise customers in Brazil.”
“With an optimal 63°W orbital location over Brazil, Telstar 19 VANTAGE provides Petrobras with unsurpassed performance and efficiency,” stated Jayme Ribeiro, Sencinet’s Executive Director of Sales and Marketing. “Additionally, our state-of-the-art hub investments leveraged in this solution provides growth capabilities for Petrobras as well as other enterprise customers in the region.”
