We are pleased to announce completion of the latest phase of terrestrial expansion of our global private network. Individual global Points of Presence (PoPs) have been enhanced and we have expanded into the Asia Pacific region to provide additional connectivity options to complement our existing PoPs in North American and Europe.
This positions us well to support the increasing connectivity demands of our global customer network and delivers significant customer benefits. These include creating tailored network solutions that meet the requirements of each individual customer to better facilitate individual customer IT compliance standards. It also supports working with global carriers to optimize network routes and increase redundancy. We can now deliver greater flexibility as an Internet Service Provider (ISP) for business aviation, military and government customers operating around the world. Customers can also access cloud services and cloud service providers via the terrestrial network.
The newly enhanced terrestrial network strengthens our global footprint which also includes the award-winning COMSAT Tier 4 certified east and west coast U.S.-located teleports. The COMSAT ground stations collaborate with our Melbourne, Florida-located Tier III rated, ISO 27001 certified SD Data Center to support delivery of a suite of cybersecurity solutions which maintain customer data integrity. In addition, SD Data Center customers can also use the teleports as a bridge for both legacy and new network technologies.
This latest infrastructure upgrade follows recent physical antenna upgrades at the COMSAT teleports which bolstered capacity across its entire network. “SD delivers a progressive, advanced and interconnected global terrestrial network that supports more satellite constellation providers, and customers, than any other independently owned network. Our strategy is focused on our customers ensuring our satellite partners in orbit, and our connectivity customers on the ground, remain seamlessly and safely connected at all times,” says Founder and CEO of SD Jim Jensen.
