Bharti-backed OneWeb collaborates with Kymeta to distribute broadband to US govt


Flat panel antenna maker Kymeta said it has signed an agreement with Bharti-backed OneWeb Technologies to distribute broadband connectivity services to the U.S. government.

The new managed satellite service offering enables Kymeta to provide government customers with hardware solutions that are packaged with secure and resilient network access from OneWeb Technologies.

Access to broadband connectivity services from the satellite connectivity platform will provide customers with an additional mission-critical connectivity resource, supplementing Kymeta’s existing broadband geostationary orbit (GEO) and 4G cellular service offering.

OneWeb Technologies is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bharti-backed low-earth orbit (LEO) satcom company, OneWeb.

“We are pleased to join in this partnership with OneWeb Technologies as we continue to bring advanced solutions across a wide range of applications for defense agencies, government, public safety, and commercial customers around the world that meet the highest levels of security and encryption requirements needed for mission-critical operations," said Walter Berger, President and Co-CEO, at Kymeta Corporation.

"The Kymeta u8 product family is designed for rapid deployment and acquires service within minutes of installation for seamless and uninterrupted communications on the move. When paired with our high-speed broadband connectivity solutions, we ensure voice, video, and data communications are available when needed most, no matter the global location," added Bob Roe, CEO, OneWeb Technologies.
