Hispasat demos 100Mbs satellite connectivity

Hispasat, a satellite operator and division of utility company Redeia, is presenting what it calls ‘one of the great innovations of MWC 2023’ at this year’s show: satellite connectivity at 100Mbs.

At the Hispasat stand the company is demonstrating a real-life 100 Mbps satellite internet connection that is now available across Spain. This technology, says Hispasat, ensures universal connectivity, with the aim of bridging the digital divide in rural, remote and sparsely populated areas throughout the territory.

Hispasat is also presenting its achievements in the Green Engine project, the largest forestation and emissions compensation initiative in Spain, in which it collaborates as a technological partner with Fundación Repsol and Sylvestris.

Satellite connectivity enables innovative and robust solutions to be deployed in forest environments, offering analysis including tree growth monitoring, fire prevention and early detection, video camera surveillance. All this collected data is being analysed and integrated with Earth observation images in a data platform developed by Elewit, Redeia's technology platform.

Also on display are the latest projects that Hispasat is carrying out in the integration of 5G networks and in the extension of cellular networks via satellite, a business in which Hispasat already connects more than 3,000 base stations in Latin America.

In collaboration with Mobile World Capital Barcelona, the company is putting on what it calls the first debate on space within the framework of Mobile World Congress. It’s called ‘Space, an immediate tool for connectivity and security’ and takes place on Wednesday.
