Air Niugini awards 2-year contract for communication services to ITC Global

ITC Global, a satellite communication company providing service to remote and harsh environments, has announced it has been awarded a two-year contract renewal by Air Niugini to provide communications services to its corporate headquarters in New Guinea (PNG), via ITC Global´s aperture terminal (VSAT) solution, the company said.

The agreement will ensure uninterrupted service supporting daily business operations and back-up connectivity for Air Niugini´s core business hub at Jacksons International Airport in Boroko, Port Moresby. Air Niugini, Papua New Guinea´s national airline, operates a fleet of more than 20 aircraft serving domestic and international markets in the Asia, Oceania and Australia regions.

Since 2015, ITC Global has provided Air Niugini´s corporate headquarters with ´always-on´ C-band service augmented by Ku-band backup for complete network redundancy. This combination ensures critical operations are safe-guarded with the highest level of service availability. Over the course of the initial contract term, ITC Global´s high-availability service served as a seamless failover in multiple instances of outages to the primary terrestrial communications link, becoming an integral part of Air Niugini´s connectivity plan.

As part of the contract renewal, service will continue to be covered by 24×7 network monitoring and support by ITC Global´s Network Operations Center (NOC).

ITC Global provides satellite communications to the energy, mining, maritime, hospitality and NGO markets.
