California, USA - Friday, 12th January 2020

Blue Arcus and Speedcast have partnered once again and have been selected for a multi- million dollar project for 4G LTE and Fixed IP network upgrade by Norfolk Island Telecom that will span across the Pacific Island of Norfolk. Norfolk is looking for a complete full- turnkey carrier-grade solution complying with all relevant international standards and a partner who can provide this end-to-end solution.

Currently, Norfolk Telecom is looking forward to evolve from a 2G mobile network to 4G LTE network with 3G for ‘Circuit switch fall back’ (CSFB) that will help improve the quality of mobile data services along with providing a faster and reliable internet connection. They will also be upgrading their legacy PSTN system to a new Fixed IP network. A fully converged OCS system will also be integrated for Norfolk to have a seamless customer billing and revenue management system for all of its services.

Norfolk Island Telecom wants to bring high-speed 4G for their people and high influx of tourists that come to the island. “We need to keep up with the increasing data requirements of our people and tourists at a competitive price and provide faster, reliable internet connections and advanced mobile services. One of the only suppliers who could deliver on our requirements with an end-to-end turnkey, carrier-grade solution was the partnership of Blue Arcus and Speedcast assuring us access to a high-speed 4G LTE network” said Alistair Innes-Walker, Manager Commercial Services at Norfolk Island Regional Council.

Partnering with Speedcast, one of the best satellite communications providers for this project, Blue Arcus is all set to help provide the people of Norfolk Island get quality internet connectivity with a cost-effective solution that caters to its remote location and small population. Naren Yanamadala, CEO of Blue Arcus said “We aim to enable Norfolk Islands gain access to quality and sustainable network staying ahead of trends, creating future- proof Smart Islands by offering cutting-edge broadband and mobile services. With the synergy of Blue Arcus and Speedcast, we look forward to completing this project in record time providing Norfolk with the services they are looking to achieve.”
