Always-On Satellite Back-Up

To complement our extensive Anylive® fibre network a permanently installed satellite connection is used for key locations where further resiliency is required.  An ‘always-on’ satellite connection comprised of a small Eutelsat Tooway® antenna is controlled by the Eutelsat NewSpotter® platform.  With a deployed estate of over 50 terminals, NEP Connect's services provide amazing benefits.
