Europasat launches Sentinel business continuity service using Eutelsat Broadband’s satellite solution


Safeguards businesses against communication outages from just £124.99 per month

25th November 2015 – Satellite broadband provider Europasat is offering businesses protection against expensive communication outages with its Sentinel business continuity service using Eutelsat Broadband’s satellite solution. With medium to large companies reporting average losses of £83,000 per incident*, using Sentinel businesses can achieve peace of mind that they will remain operational if their standard data communication links unexpectedly go down. Costing only £124.99+vat a month, Sentinel works by providing customers with an independent satellite broadband communications link, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, using Eutelsat Broadband’s KA-SAT satellite.

“Two fundamental attributes of satellite broadband give Sentinel the edge over any other option when it comes to insuring your business against a significant communications outage,” explained Johnny Robinson, CMO, at Europasat. “Sentinel can be deployed wherever your business is located across Europe. All that’s required is line of sight to our satellite in orbit. No other infrastructure connection, other than a power source, is required meaning the Sentinel system can be deployed in a completely different location at the premises, well away from other communications infrastructure, removing any risk of Sentinel being impacted by a core outage.”

Sentinel is quick and simple to deploy and set-up. An initial survey by a Europasat accredited installer to determine the optimum location for the satellite antenna is followed by installation on the exterior of the building and the routing of the cabling to a location inside the building. The installation process itself typically takes less than one day.

Sentinel provides constant access to an ‘always on’ 10 Mbps download, 4 Mbps upload service with a 20:1 contention ratio. If required, this is billed in 1 GB increments – although the first 1 GB is free.

If there is an outage or a need for uncontended bandwidth, customers have access to the Sentinel client portal where, in as little as 5 minutes, they can have access to up to 10 Mbps download and 6 Mbps upload uncontended bandwidth.

The Sentinel service is delivered using Eutelsat Broadband’s connectivity over its KA-SAT satellite. The first of a new European generation of high-capacity, smart satellites, KA-SAT’s innovative design enables customers across Europe, North Africa and large parts of the Middle East to receive high-speed broadband services at a fraction of the cost of other satellites.

Olivier Anstett, General Manager at Eutelsat Broadband, said: “Europasat’s commercial and technical expertise alongside Eutelsat Broadband’s leading satellite infrastructure and service has combined to provide customers with an innovative business continuity solution that is independent of traditional communications infrastructures and cost effective to deploy.”

The service is available immediately from Europasat. For more information on the solution telephone: 0800 915 6055 or visit
