Boost to remote, rural communications services from Optus, Ursys alliance

By

Voice and data communications services in remote and rural areas of Australia will get a boost from a new partnership between Optus Satellite and communications provider Ursys.

The alliance will see URSYS utilise dedicated satellite capacity on Optus’ D2 satellite — as well as providing access to third-party international satellite providers — and Optus’ teleport facilities at Belrose, north of Sydney and the wider Optus infrastructure.

According to Optus Satellite vice-president, Paul Sheridan, the partnership is significant as it “focuses on joint go-to-market opportunities within the targeted LTE, SCADA and unique network industries”.

“This exciting new relationship builds on the deep experience of both Ursys and Optus. Sheridan says the partnership will market demands for a “complete solution, particularly where more than just a simple broadband connection is required”.

Ursys chief executive Grahame Cover says the company has designed, built and managed several nationally significant networks including NT Connect for the Local Government Association of Northern Territory communities, South Pacific Tsunami Warning Network for the Bureau of Meteorology, a national satellite-based Scada network for APA Group and a complete commercial grade Vsat services solution for Cygnus Satellite.

Cover says Ursys and Optus Satellite have proven long-term commitments to remote and rural Australia, and the partnership “combines our expertise to re-define services and offer bespoke solutions to remote business customers with specific network requirements”.
