GLOBAL Technologies teams with Eutelsat to serve Mattel

Technology company GLOBAL Technologies has signed a multi-year contract with Eutelsat Communications (Paris:ETL) (NYSE Euronext Paris: ETL) for C-band capacity on the EUTELSAT 8 West B satellite in order to upgrade the mobile and Internet network of Mattel, a subsidiary of Tunisie Télécom and Mauritania´s leading mobile operator, the company said.

In order to deliver improved Internet access and service quality, particularly in areas isolated from terrestrial networks, Mattel is calling on the expertise of the GLOBAL Technologies Group to overhaul its VSAT network. The Group is driving this complex modernisation project in partnership with Eutelsat, from design phase to nationwide deployment of a state-of-the-art solution for Mattel.

Distributed across Mauritania, VSAT dishes measuring between 2.5 and 4.5 metres are used to connect mobile telephony and Internet base stations to the EUTELSAT 8 West B satellite, without any need for terrestrial networks.
