Surrey, UK, 8th July 2014 – NSSLGlobal Ltd, the independent service provider of satellite communications, has opened a new US teleport in Southbury, Connecticut. The additional hub supports the company’s ongoing commitment to expand its VSAT Ku-Band network when the opportunity arises. This latest teleport, NSSLGlobal’s seventh, will also help deliver improved connectivity for customers in the Americas, the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean.
The Connecticut teleport, which will work in tandem with NSSLGlobal’s Jacksonville teleport, will be integrated into NSSLGlobal’s DVBS2-RCS2 network and operate beams such as the Intelsat T11 USA.
