Tusass Selects NOVELSAT for Major Capacity Network in Greenland

NOVELSAT Xnet system to bring reliable and high-quality satellite communication services to the people of Greenland

Nuuk, Greenland and Ra’anana, Israel – March 12, 2023 – NOVELSAT, a global leader in content connectivity, announced today that Tusass, Greenland’s leading communications provider, has selected NOVELSAT’s products and technology for a major capacity network in Greenland that will provide high-speed broadband services to remote and underserved communities in Greenland.

The network will be powered by NOVELSAT’s Xnet, a high-capacity dynamic SCPC solution with advanced dynamic resource allocation. The Xnet hub will be installed in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria, providing very high-capacity connectivity to multiple locations in Greenland, including Qaanaaq, Upernavik, Nuuk, Ittoqqortoormiit, and Tasiilaq.

Designed to support the highest needs of network operators, NOVELSAT’s Xnet optimizes and maximizes both performance and usage of satellite and network resources. Utilizing NOVELSAT’s advanced technology for dynamic allocation of network resources along with the most bandwidth-efficient waveform, NOVELSAT NS4™, significantly enhances network economics.

“We are pleased to be working with NOVELSAT on this important project,” said Jonas Hasselriis, CTO of Tusass. “Their Xnet solution offers the flexibility and scalability we need to provide our customers with high-quality, reliable connectivity they demand, even in the most challenging locations. We look forward to deploying this network to meet the growing demand for communication services in Greenland.”

“We are excited to have been chosen by Tusass to provide this major capacity network in Greenland,” said Gary Drutin, CEO of NOVELSAT. “Our Xnet solution is ideally suited to meet the unique needs of Greenland’s arctic locations. We are confident that the combination of our technology and Tusass’s expertise will provide a reliable and high-quality network that will benefit customers across the region.”
