SC CapRock, a Brazilian subsidiary of Speedcast, signed an agreement with Starlink to sell Starlink’s corporate internet services.
SC CapRock has an existing agreement with Nokia to deploy Nokia’s 4.9G/LTE and 5G private wireless network solutions.
The company said its new agreement with Starlink will enable an expansion of private wireless network coverage to remote areas using Starlink’s satellite network as a backhaul link.
SC CapRock and Nokia have already deployed an LTE private network for a customer in Brazil using Nokia’s solution. The Starlink integration will make it easier to extend coverage to remote sites without needing to deploy new infrastructure.
By integrating Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (DAC) with Starlink, the solution:
- Offers up to 100ms latency possible between the 4G/LTE radio base stations and the private wireless core, significantly expanding coverage and creating 4G coverage bubbles in remote areas.
- Provides high-speed, low-latency connectivity to enterprise customers with high levels of performance and operational efficiency.
- Reduces complexity for small remote sites by eliminating the need for new private wireless cores, towers, and energy systems.
“There is growing demand from the agribusiness, energy and mining sectors for private wireless networks, and the recent global agreement with Starlink will help us provide high-speed, low-latency connectivity to these customers, with high levels of performance and operational efficiency,” said André Gustavo Sant’Anna, country manager for SC CapRock in Brazil.
Marcelo Entreconti, Head of Enterprise for Latin America at Nokia, said: “We’re happy to partner with SC CapRock in this initiative, providing Nokia’s leading-edge private wireless solutions to accelerate digital transformation throughout enterprises in Brazil, enhancing productivity, safety, and efficiency with secure and reliable connectivity.”
- Nokia has deployed over 2,600 mission-critical networks globally.
