Loral Skynet To Deploy VSAT Network For UK Jaguar Dealerships
Loral Skynet announced Monday that it has signed an agreement with Jaguar Cars UK to provide a business television network covering all 100 Jaguar dealerships in the United Kingdom. This new network is in addition to Loral Skynet's previous agreement with Jaguar's sister company, Land Rover UK, which provides for business television services to 130 Land Rover dealerships throughout the UK.
Jaguar Business TV will broadcast training and communications programming over a secure video and data network developed by Skynet.
"Loral Skynet's end-to-end business television application enables the quick dissemination of important communications throughout the Jaguar and Land Rover dealership networks in the UK," said Terry Hart, president, Loral Skynet.
"The advantages inherent in Skynet's satellite-based broadcast capability combined with its business television and IP networking expertise allow enterprises to effectively communicate among remote offices without restrictions due to geography or distance from terrestrial communications."
Jaguar Business TV will be distributed across the UK using Loral's Telstar 12 satellite, located at 15 degrees West longitude. Skynet will provide the communications infrastructure, including on-premise dishes and receiving equipment, and maintenance services to each dealership.
