Viasat Energy Services Introduces Enhanced Hybrid Network Service for the Energy Industry

The new solution, part of Viasat Energy Services’ range of offerings for the Energy sector, has been expanded to seamlessly incorporate low earth orbit (LEO) satellite capacity alongside Viasat Energy Services’ existing multi-orbit and terrestrial capacity designed to deliver highly flexible capabilities that can address energy customer needs through a single, integrated and fully managed service. The enhanced service is expected to be available early in the third quarter of calendar year 2024.

These capabilities are all delivered alongside Viasat’s existing robust service commitments.

Lee Ahlstrom, President, Viasat Energy Services, said: “Serving customers exceptionally well is our North Star – no matter the underlying technology to get there. Our energy customers are looking to solve complex challenges and operate more safely, efficiently, and sustainably. Our services are designed to make that happen. This enhanced hybrid network service offering will allow customers to improve operational efficiency and support their most advanced digital transformation efforts in the future.”
