Harvest Technology Group, a provider of network optimised remote operations, today it has executed a formal reseller agreement with Speedcast, a communications and IT services provider, delivering critical communications services for remote customers in industries including energy, maritime, mining, and telecommunications.

As part of the agreement between the two companies, Harvest’s ultra-low bandwidth Network Optimised Livestreaming solutions will be integrated with Speedcast’s SmartView solution. Harvest says its Livestreaming solutions can securely stream high-definition, real-time voice, video, and data over ultra-low bandwidth from anywhere in the world, where connectivity is often constrained or absent.

“Our partnership with Harvest aligns with our vision to continually innovate for our customers’ success,” said Speedcast vice president product management Jeffrey Irwin. “Adding Harvest’s industry-leading, remote video streaming solutions to our portfolio enables remote sites to deliver real-time visibility back to decision-makers anywhere in the world, enhancing operational efficiencies, strengthening worker safety, and driving cost savings.”

Harvet says the agreement between the two companies will extend Harvest’s sales capabilities on a global scale. Speedcast’s technology and applications portfolio currently has more than 3,200 customers in 140 countries, serving over 10,000 maritime vessels and more than 8,000 terrestrial sites.

The benefits for Speedcast customers using the Harvest solution include increased operational efficiencies from faster decision-making in the field, back at base, in the office or at home, says Harvest.

“Harvest’s Network Optimised Livestreaming solutions ensure necessary connectivity to maintain and repair equipment, monitor networks, and access remote systems from operations centres rather than deploying more people in field or on site,” said Harvest Technology Group chief executive officer Paul Guilfoyle.

Harvest says employee safety is a priority for organisations with remote workforces. High-definition, real-time voice, video, and data delivered via Network Optimised Livestreaming solutions ensures employee safety, ranging from reducing the need for workers to be in high-risk environments, to always-on safety systems, and tele-health services for unexpected illness or injury management.

“Almost half of the globe still doesn’t have access to high-speed internet and more than 30% are without 4G coverage, so we are excited to work with Speedcast to enable their customers anywhere in the world to stay connected to operations and personnel while using a fraction of their existing bandwidth resources,” continued Guilfoyle. “The combination of our ultra-low bandwidth technology and Speedcast’s impressive network will bolster its global network platform providing fully connected systems that transform remote operations.”
