Global Skyware equips Eutelsat’s KONNECT VHTS ground terminals with innovative XRE ODU platform

Global Skyware (part of the Global Invacom Group), a leading provider of user-terminal and gateway products and solutions for satcom ground networks, announces a multi-year contract for the supply of Global Skyware’s XRE ODU platform with Eutelsat (Euronext: ETL), one of the world’s largest satellite communications companies.

The new platform is based on the innovative Skyware XRE 3-Watt transceiver which begins production in Q4 2023. Uniquely equipped with zero-touch Electronic Polarization Switching (EPS) and covering the full commercial Ka band (17.3 – 20.2 GHz / 28.4 – 30 GHz), the XRE is paired with Skyware SMC Series of high performance, lightweight, composite antennas.

Providing Eutelsat with an unmatched blend of operational dexterity and optimized performance for their KONNECT VHTS broadband service, the XRE is the latest addition to Global Skyware’s XR Transceiver family; a modem agnostic family which includes the recently launched the Skyware XRJ platform, the industry’s first Ka band transceiver platform with a linear power range power from 5 to 25 Watts.  

"This contract demonstrates our technology leadership and ability to design and manufacture innovative transceiver platforms for new constellations in collaboration with Tier 1 satellite operators. As with all our customers, their success is our success. It’s an ethos that our operator partnerships thrive on and keeps us focused on innovation and optimizing the end-user experience by designing and developing products and solutions with superior performance and reliability.”

Gordon Blaikie, CEO at Global Invacom Group

"We are delighted to be working with Global Skyware and using their new XRE ODU Platform to deliver our KONNECT VHTS broadband services to our customers. Highly durable, lightweight, easy to deploy and manage; these are some of the other compelling attributes of the XRE ODU platform, and we look forward to introducing it in our network.”

Denis Fauconnier, Director for ground engineering at Eutelsat
