The new series is a tiered set of managed services that
helps clarify and simplify network operations outsourcing. The new series

Spacenet CompleteConnect Services provide customers with
a complete, full lifecycle network design, implementation, operations and

from a technical support role to one more focused on enabling strategic
business initiatives. Our Connect Series is designed with the network manager’s
real world needs in mind. Essentially, Spacenet and the customer work as a
team, combining our expertise and resources to augment and enhance the
customer’s capabilities to optimize network operations,” said Brad Wise, senior
VP and general manager of Spacenet Managed Network Services.
