As a result of rapid growth of Satcom1 and customer demand for high-speed solutions, Satcom1 decided to become a hardware reseller for the first time it its 11-year history, in order to provide a full broadband solution to its VIP clients.

Our aim is to work closely with completion centers, which prefer a SATCOM provider that can propose network design, ensure hardware fulfillment, and perform complete system testing and activation – prior to the final end-customer delivery. Satcom1’s completion partners can choose what level of service they need or wish to have delivered from Satcom1. If we can simplify this process for anyone – we are proud to add JetWave hardware to our portfolio as part of the supply chain for SATCOM solutions.”- says Karina Larsen, co-founder at Satcom1.
