Avanti Operator

Avanti Communications


Intermatica expands its range of satellite telecommunications services thanks to new InSAT applications: not only connectivity to MSS (Mobile Satellite Services) but also to VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) solutions for fixed or semi-fixed installations.

For these services, Intermatica has selected a new primary partner, Avanti Communications PLC, becoming its VNO (Virtual Network Operator) for Italy. Through this partnership, Intermatica is now in the position of offering new high-performance satellite broadband solutions, either standard or tailored to Customer needs.

Intermatica offers an unrivalled service on the Italian market by guaranteeing high quality combined to utmost flexibility.

Avanti Communications is a company listed on the London Stock Exchange that owns a strongly expanding satellite network currently composed of two geostationary satellites, Hylas 1 and Hylas 2.

Over the upcoming two years, two more satellites, co-developed with ESA, the European Space Agency, will be launched into orbit: in 2016 Hylas 3, the so-called “intelligent satellite”, which provides the possibility of allocating coverage areas according to market needs, enhancing services in some areas rather than in others, depending on which has greater bandwidth demands; in 2017 Hylas 4 will be launched to increase the coverage over African continent.

InSAT solutions are ideal to meet the ever-increasing demand for broadband connectivity, including in the most remote areas not covered with conventional networks. Avanti’s satellite network covers all of Italy as well as most of Europe, some of the Mediterranean countries and several key countries in Africa and in the Middle East. The system is the solution to bridge Italy’s “digital divide” without the need to make sizable investments and, most of all, very quickly, even in the most remote areas. Avanti’s Internet connection service requires nothing else but the installation of a small-sized dish antenna, similar to those used for satellite TV, and a modem, giving quick and easy access to the Internet services.

Avanti’s network envisages several ground stations (gateways) interconnected between them. The primary gate- way for Italy is Goonhilly, in the United Kingdom, which is connected via fibre optics to London’s Telehouse East and is rebound on a secondary gateway. At customers’ request, it is possible to enable a direct connection to Avanti’s networks also through the telehouse of Global Switch One (London), AMX (Amsterdam), Interxion (Frankfurt) and Netscalibur (Milan).


Intermatica’s InSAT solutions are the best option in order to meet the ever-growing demand for broadband and VoIP connectivity in even the most remote areas, where data services like ADSL, 3G and LTE are not available.

Thanks to its small-size 74 cm diameter antennas with transmission power of only a few watts, InSAT solutions are easy to install and enable high-performance connections(with high QoS, reliability and security) between stations at a distance of even thousands of kilometres, at competitive costs comparable to those of conventional fixed or mobile network solutions.
