AXESS NETWORKS IS RECOGNIZED WITH THE AWARD FOR UNIVERSAL CONNECTIVITY

Paris, September 19, 2022. During the 25th World Satellite Business Week (WSBW) organized by Euroconsult, the annual winners for Excellence in Satellite Communications were announced, in which AXESS Networks was awarded in the Universal Connectivity category for its participation in the project with CFE Telecomunicaciones – Internet para Todos (IPT) in Mexico, that intends to decrease the digital gap through connectivity, with the enabling of over 7,200 sites so that communities have access to the Internet.

The recognized project was selected by an expert jury that assesses aspects such as the business impact, innovation, management, and the economic model, this way recognizing this satellite project as the most successfulwithin its category. These awards, delivered annually, are presented within the framework of one of the most important events of the satellite industry, in which more than 200 executives of the sector and nearly 400 companies of the chain are present.

This award recognizes the effort and cooperation among several participants pf the project. For AXESS, it represents one of the greatest projects with 2,529 satellite links across the Mexican territory. 2,475 of these links are internet sites located at highways, public institutions such as health centers, hospitals, libraries, schools and community spaces, and they were implemented in record time (1,500 sites in 4 weeks). The other 54 links are satellite cellular backhaul sites that allow users to have data and voice on their mobile devices.

AXESS delivered a customized connectivity design tailored for CFE IPT, including integrated solutions at a LAN level such as Wi-Fi and captive portals. An installation reporting system was also integrated with digital certificates, speeding up the sites validation and delivery processes. CFE IPT has an administration portal for the AXESS links which gives them real time visibility and facilitates their management.

Mauricio Segovia, CEO of AXESS, who received the award, stated: “We are very pleased with our contribution to make Internet para Todos a successful initiative that provides Internet access to most of the Mexican population. Participating in projects that close connectivity gaps and promote inclusion using satellite solutions is a key element of the AXESS Networks mission.”

Additionally, Hispasat, a Spanish business group of which AXESS Networks currently makes part of, achieved the Regional Space Company Award recognizing its leadership in the industry and which continues to bet on growth through its Strategic Plan for the satellite business 2021-25, now with AXESS as a relevant player; “We are incredibly honored to receive this award that recognizes the regional satellite business in a year in which we strengthened our strategic position in Latin America with the acquisition of AXESS Networks. This operation allowed us to become the leading group in corporate solutions throughout the region.” mentioned Miguel Angel Panduro, CEO of Hispasat.

These industry awards to both AXESS and Hispasat keep on reaffirming the validity of the technology and the escalation of the position of both companies in the world’s satellite top.
