Ovzon’s service, providing mobile broadband via satellite, is currently used by Italian authorities in its work to prevent further spread of the corona virus. The Civil Protection Department and the Italian army use the service to establish reliable broadband communication, used mainly for videoconferencing between personnel in the field in the affected “red zones” and the headquarters of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers in Rome.

In December 2019, Ovzon signed a cooperation agreement for Italy with Gomedia Satcom, and the same time Ovzon and Gomedia secured an initial order from the Italian army. The Ovzon service is now in operation and use in Northern Italy.

Authorities engaged in preventing the spread of the virus is mostly in the field, on access roads to the “red zones” where the incidence of virus is high, and they are continuously on the move. Broadband communication through Ovzon’s service has also been established in tents and temporary buildings where service to citizens is provided, in areas where fixed infrastructure is unavailable or insufficient.


“Reliable communication is essential for field personnel and decision-makers in situations like this. Ovzon’s terminals and equipment are easy to use, portable and provide reliable high-speed communication. This is a good example of how Ovzon’s services are used to provide communication in distress situations, we are happy to see how our service can help”, comments Magnus René, CEO of Ovzon.
