OneWeb has opened a state-of-the-art Service Demonstration experience at the new Innovation Centre at Westcott Venture Park, which is run and managed by the Satellite Applications Catapult and was funded by Buckinghamshire LEP through the Local Growth Fund.
Situated in Buckinghamshire, UK, OneWeb’s facility welcomes customers to demonstrate the performance and potential applications of their satellite network in real-time.
The Service Demo showcases equipment and high-speed connectivity, and visitors are able to see the OneWeb network in action including download and upload speeds and latency. Sales support staff are on hand to discuss the technology, potential partnerships, testing requirements and further collaboration opportunities.
Focused on attracting partnerships with commercial communications or internet solution providers, the Service Demo experience will play a vital role in launching OneWeb’s unique service for UK businesses. The centre will develop a long-term commercial proposition for its technology in collaboration with the UK’s innovative satellite communications sector.
Michele Franci, Chief of Delivery at OneWeb, commented: “The launch of the Service Demo at the Westcott Innovation Centre is a significant moment for OneWeb, as we expand our UK presence and lead the way as a global gateway for space innovation. As we continue to develop and deliver a unique LEO network product for the world, the Service Demo will create engagement and partnerships using satellite technology, for the benefit of future generations. The opening of this facility brings OneWeb closer to delivering on its mission to provide connectivity for people, businesses and governments, while potentially unlocking new research, development and manufacturing opportunities in the UK.”
