Primetech has been selected by C-COM of Canada as its first European Authorised Service Centre. Authorised Service Centres must meet a number of very strict requirements. They must have at least 12 months minimum proven experience supporting and installing iNetVu satellite systems. They are also required to maintain a comprehensive local inventory of spare parts, and staff must have completed iNetVu training courses. With over 10 years of support for C-COM satellite systems in the UK and throughout Europe, Primetech has fulfilled these criteria many times over.
The University of the West of Scotland has installed a Ka-band satellite from Primetech on its new Learning Bus to support online access while the bus is in remote locations across its extremely wide catchment area. The bus has been purchased to promote adult and further learning in UWS Campus communities and further afield.
The unit is an Optare Tempo bus fitted with 14 computers linked to the satellite system for high bandwidth wireless Internet access. The bus will travel within the UWS footprint and target areas where there are likely to be people who can step on board with a view to finding out about studying at UWS. The bus will visit schools, colleges, community centres, NHS trusts, company HQ’s and sports centres, showcasing UWS courses and facilities.
