NSSLGlobal to develop next-generation VSAT modem and Hubs in line with customer needs

16 November 2017 — NSSLGlobal Technologies AS, a fully owned subsidiary of NSSLGlobal Ltd, has today acquired the SatLink communications technology. Through the acquisition NSSLGlobal takes full ownership of SatLink’s VSAT modem and Hub product families as well as retain SatLink’s software engineering team.

As part of its commitment to delivering the best satcom infrastructure in the industry, NSSLGlobal will now control and drive forward SatLink’s next-generation product roadmap, and focus significant engineering R&D towards the ongoing needs of its clients — with the full flexibility and control to quickly adapt as those needs evolve.

Sally-Anne Ray, Group CEO of NSSLGlobal comments: “SatLink has been a key strategic partner of ours for over a decade, and its products already form part of the core technology underpinning our fully owned and controlled VSAT network. We therefore have full confidence in the technology and the team we bring in to the NSSLGlobal family and with our experience, investment and energy behind it we believe we are well-positioned to push the next generation of SatLink mobility products forward”.

“This acquisition is in line with NSSLGlobal’s ambition to become an engineering powerhouse, particularly for our government and maritime customers and their highly-sophisticated communication needs. By taking full ownership and control of the SatLink portfolio and its roadmap we can align future R&D directly to the needs our customers. This is sure to become a core source of differentiation for NSSLGlobal that sets us apart from many of our competitors.”
