Thales announced the launch of its new ThalesLINK product line of L-band solutions – MissionLINK 200 and VesseLINK 200.
New Australian space startup Quasar Satellite Technologies is set to revolutionise space communication, allowing ground stations to talk to hundreds of satellites at once using technology developed by CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency.
An Inmarsat report brands Singapore as a “start-up magnet” due to its advanced maritime economy and predicts that the country’s IT market will generate US$2.4 billion in 2021 and reach US$4.8 billion by 2030.
The latest case study from Inmarsat is no bull, showing the McMillan Pastoral Company in Queensland is jumping over the moon at being able to "cost-effectively" track its cows over satellite broadband.
China has launched a 6G experimental satellite to verify the performance of the technology in space as this frequency band will expand from the mmWave frequency to the terahertz frequency.
The annual losses incurred by NBN Co, the company rolling out Australia's national broadband network, have been halved in 2019-20 year-on-year, according to the company's results which were announced on Tuesday.
The NBN Co's Sky Muster satellite was hit by an outage today due to an extreme weather event, with services not available from about 10.30am till 4pm.
The best way forward for the national broadband network is for it to remain in government hands and be managed for strategic advantage, rather than commercial gain, a network expert has told iTWire.
The Federal Government needs to draft a statement of expectation as to what it expects to happen to the national broadband network next, after the network rollout is officially over at the end of the month, veteran telecommunications analyst Paul Budde says, adding that otherwise Australia will continue to languish in the broadband wilderness.
Barring a major catastrophe, the Coalition Government will be able to announce within a fortnight or so that it has completed the rollout of the national broadband network and met its target. One can only hope that, at the same time, there will be an announcement about how the network will be upgraded.
Mobile network outages during the 2019-20 bushfires were overwhelmingly due to loss of power rather than fire damage, according to a new report from the telecommunications regulator ACMA.
NBN Co has launched a business-grade satellite service covering regional and remote areas.
The Coalition Government made the right choice back in 2013 to adopt a multi-technology mix for rolling out the national broadband network, ditching a Labor plan to have fibre to 93% of homes and service the rest through fixed wireless and satellite, Communications Minister Paul Fletcher says.
The Australian Labor Party will not make any quick changes to the rollout of the national broadband network if it comes to power in the Federal Election later this year, but will take a "responsible" approach to the project.
The Australian Parliament's Joint Standing Committee into the NBN has recommended that the government update the modelling of its proposed regional broadband levy, in order to reflect the cost increases since the original modelling in 2015.
A week ahead of announcing its first-quarter results for fiscal 2019-20, the NBN Co has announced new plans for its wholesale satellite customers which will not count data used for email, Web browsing and critical software updates towards monthly data allowances.
While 4K content has arrived or can be captured in sufficient quantity for Foxtel to launch a dedicated channel, the network is either betting that enough of the Asian part of its customer base simply isn't superstitious, or the Pay TV titan just isn't worried about it.
With my 4G smartphone able to offer vastly faster upload and download speeds than all NBN connections in existence today, and while the NBN says it does offer gigabit connections, when NBN Co wants you to ask "how much speed do you need?", it doesn't expect gigabit will be your answer.
Mobile satellite communications company Pivotel has announced the acquisition of Wrights Satellite Connections, a "leading-edge provider of mobile satellite communications solutions in New Zealand with a strong focus on the government, defence and maritime industries".
Many statistics in the NBN Co's results for the full-year 2018, announced on Thursday, show an improvement, but one area where things appear to be either worse or static is the cost of installation per premises.
