Arqiva, the communications infrastructure and media services company, has today announced that it has been selected by Panasonic Avionics Corporation to provide its hosting, connectivity and teleport uplink services via Telesat’s new high throughput satellite (HTS) Telstar 12 VANTAGE .

The multi-year contract will see Arqiva deliver a range of mobility services for Panasonic, including inflight WiFi, which will operate round the clock from its Chalfont Grove teleport site near London. Signals are extended to the Panasonic Network over the Arqiva managed core network ‘ArqNet’ – a 2.5Tbps resilient transmission network.

Arqiva’s T12 VANTAGE 7.6m earth station is configured to access the entire Telstar 12 VANTAGE frequency range and multiple beams.

Todd Hill, Senior Director, Global Communications Services at Panasonic Avionics Corporation commented: “As we launch our second generation satellite communications services and bring the advantages of high throughput satellites to our customers, we must ensure that our ground operations are also state of the art. Arqiva has been a great partner for Panasonic since day one, and we are pleased to extend our partnership with them.”

David Crawford, Managing Director of Satellite & Media at Arqiva commented: “At Arqiva we pride ourselves on delivering reliable, high quality network solutions, and consider service excellence a core part of our DNA. We are delighted that Panasonic has recognised this and entrusted our experienced Satellite Data Communications team with the task at hand – and look forward to supporting Panasonic in the coming years.”
