November 29, 2023 – Hanwha Systems has signed a distribution partnership agreement with Eutelsat OneWeb to provide high-speed, low latency connectivity services to South Korea. Hanwha Systems is pursuing participation in the ‘commercial low-orbit satellite-based communication system’ project that secures a Korean government network using Eutelsat OneWeb’s satellite network and is also installing satellite communication terminals in remote areas where internet access is difficult, as well as at sea and in the air. Through Eutelsat OneWeb and Hanwha’s B2B satellite communication services customers will receive stable ‘Space Internet’ services 24 hours a day from low-orbit satellites. Hanwha Systems announced plans to take steps to obtain approval for the government’s landing right, which is the Korean cross-border provision of key telecommunications services. The satellite communication network’s frequencies and orbits are secured through international registration with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). When using an overseas satellite network, approval for landing right must be obtained from the Korean government to prevent national security threats. Hanwha Systems completed registration as a communications business with the Ministry of Science and Technology last July and plans to submit a landing right agreement with Eutelsat Group at the end of this month.
