Epsilon partners KT Sat to offer satellite networking solutions
Epsilon Telecommunications, a subsidiary of KT Corp. Tuesday said it has partnered with KT Sat to add satellite networking to its portfolio of connectivity solutions.
This announcement follows Epsilon’s recent expansion into South Korea, with three strategically located points of presence (PoPs).
Epsilon in a statement said that with the partnership, its customers will gain access to KT Sat’s satellites with extensive global coverage, with a focus across South and East Asia.
“Powered by KT Sat, Epsilon’s satellite service incorporates Asia’s largest satellite teleport which has been connecting users globally for over 50 years through 40 antennas and 7,000 lines,” it added.
KT Sat operates a fleet of five satellites in C, Ku and Ka-band frequencies across 113ºE (Koreasat-5), 116ºE (Koreasat-7), 113ºE (Koreasat-5a), 116ºE (Koreasat-6), and 75ºE (Koreasat-8) orbit locations. Epsilon’s Points of Presence (PoPs) in South Korea, Germany and Singapore are located adjacent to the five teleport locations to bring satellite traffic to its expanding network ecosystem.
“KT Sat’s global satellite coverage and Kumsan and Yongin Satellite Service Centers make a tremendous addition to our global footprint and offer customers unique connectivity options, especially for hard-to-reach locations,” said Michel Robert, Chief Executive Officer at Epsilon Telecommunications.
Epsilon’s suite of satellite solutions is enabling it to provide a one-stop solution for end-to-end connectivity across continents, including cloud connectivity, software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) and more. The KT Sat service provides added value to Epsilon’s global network fabric that connects to 300 data centres, leading cloud, internet exchange and network service providers around the world.
“Our relationship with KT Sat is further evidence of the synergies we are creating across the KT Group. We are working closely to leverage the expertise and experience within KT, deliver new services and create new value for our global customer base,” said Robert. Pickool
