Intelsat is Partnering with coreNOC to Provide Internet Connectivity to the Dominican Republic
Intelsat, the operator of the world’s largest integrated satellite and terrestrial network, has entered into a synergistic partnership with coreNOC,, Audio Union International,, KM systems and undisclosed capital fund. In addition, the group is working with the government of the Dominican Republic to deliver cost-effective and high-speed internet to the country’s rural areas as part of a national wireless internet and infrastructure system for the Ministry of Education.
The team recently demonstrated the network solution to government dignitaries visiting the region. The system combines fixed wireless broadband and distributed satellite connectivity. The government’s vision to increase the availability and quality of education for all Dominican students is often hampered by the lack of electricity and telecommunications infrastructure in remote areas. In addition, the demonstration established a system that will be easily scalable to support the growing connectivity needs in the Dominican Republic and other countries where limited infrastructure does not allow the provision of the necessary broadband services.
The system is based on The Simple Site solution, first introduced by coreNOC Telecommunication Infrastructure Project (TIP) Rural Best Practices Event in 2020 coreNOC, a Provider of solutions for telecommunication infrastructure projects (TIP) and recipient of a drawing badge, provided that the rapid deployment of the tower and LTE fixed broadband wireless connection (EPC-Radio-CPE) for the solution. The high speed internet connection was provided by Intelsat via its Intelsat 37e satellite (IS-37e) and operated the Agilecore Dialog service. K&M Systems completed the radio frequency design, while Audio Union International performed wi-fi and application integration on the network.
“Connecting is a necessity of life, not just a good thing,” said Tim Shermerhorn, Intelsat’s regional vice president of sales. “Students need to be able to learn, live and grow with knowledge just a click away. By helping to expand high-speed internet to remote areas of the Dominican Republic, we can take DR education to the next level. “
“Officials in the Dominican Republic recognize that high-speed Internet connectivity is critical to their students’ success,” said Ben Eeley, director of information technology at coreNOC, Inc. have access to the tools and training they need to improve their education and future career opportunities. “
The on-site demonstration team included a Facebook connectivity engineer with remote support from Intelsat Engineering and the Facebook Consolidated Continuity Connectivity Lab (C3L). The combined team will use lab tests and experience gained from on-site demonstrations in the Dominican Republic to develop best practices that improve broadband solutions in rural areas and expand the scope of The Simple Site.
