December 20, 2021 – OneWeb has welcomed Vocus, Australia’s specialist fibre and network solutions provider, as its first distribution partner in Australia. The partnership will see Vocus deliver OneWeb’s high-speed, low-latency communications services across the country. Supported by a network of gateways and user terminals, OneWeb’s global connectivity platform will provide high-bandwidth and low-latency connectivity to expand Vocus’s existing connectivity capabilities in and across Australia. The partnership will enable a fibre-like experience to benefit end users, offering network and internet access no matter where customers are, and will showcase Vocus’ technical capabilities as well as its commitment to delivering exceptional experiences. The partnership will focus on expanding bandwidth for a variety of industries such as government, mining, oil and gas, utilities, construction, and community services. This will serve a range of use cases and benefits, including improving corporate efficiency, health and safety, asset tracking, environmental monitoring, and new operational applications, while also helping remote workers better connect with their families and loved ones back home. Utilising the power of OneWeb’s network, Vocus will augment its existing GEO satellite or microwave connectivity by adding low-latency LEO satellite services. Through its national high-capacity fibre infrastructure, Vocus delivers connectivity, collaboration, hybrid cloud and data centre solutions to enterprise and government organisations across a wide range of industries, including those in regional or remote locations who previously had limited or no connectivity.
