Lepton Global Solutions Expands Global Presence With New Network on E70B

Lepton's new Managed Service on E70B offers flexible, reliable, and secure IP access over the Middle East, North Africa, South West Asia, and Europe for enterprise and government markets.

Lepton Global Solutions, a leading provider of customized, cost-effective, end-to-end satellite communication solutions, today announced the launch of a new Managed Satellite Network on Eutelsat 70B (70.5° East) for enterprise and government customers. Leveraging the latest iDirect platform, Lepton’s newest network will provide reliable and secure coverage across a broad expanse of territory from Europe to SWA, featuring strong coverage over North Africa and the Middle East.

Lepton’s hub-side infrastructure is co-located at the Fucino Space Centre in Ortucchio, Italy, selected for its established history, security infrastructure, and topographic advantage for uplink and downlink connections. The iDirect platform is managed from Lepton’s Network Operations Center in Vienna, VA, which also provides 24x7 customer support.

"Demand from military customers in particular facilitated this investment," said Rob Weitendorf, Managing Partner. "This network is designed to accommodate the smaller portable and manpack terminals increasingly used by our customer set in this region."
