ABOUT US

Your trusted VSAT partner since 2001

Omniaccess was founded in Palma de Mallorca in 2001. The early days of the company were as a Wifi/Wimax provider for superyachts in several Ports in Palma and mainland Spain. The company’s roots in networking and IT drove OmniAccess’ involvement in the LAN side of yachts whilst still providing WAN services. Our close relationship with our clients and the new satellite broadband technology led us into the VSAT service provisioning. After a few years of operating managed VSAT networks our first teleport went live in 2009, following our strong principles of truly end-to-end control we continued to grow our own infrastructure.

Location

We are located on the island of Mallorca, in the heart of the Mediterranean. Apart from Mallorca being a major yachting hub, it offers ideal conditions for satellite earth stations. Our Teleport location benefits from over 300 sunny days per year, below average precipitation and quickly overpassing weather fronts, thanks to the predominant Northerly winds coming from the Golfe du Lyon region (France), making weather related outages very rare. In addition, our southerly location allows us to uplink to numerous additional satellites compared to other Teleports located further North allowing for further redundancy and flexibility in booking satellite capacity when required.

Today, with over 100 specialist, OmniAccess operates an advanced global proprietary VSAT network with more than 32 satellite-beams in both C- and Ku-band, uplinked from 6 Teleport locations in Spain, Germany, Hawaii, Australia and the USA. OmniAccess provides industry-leading nextGen BroadBeam® VSAT solutions for Internet connectivity at sea with ultra-high speeds of up to 400Mbps, augmented by the nextGen iO 4G & WiMax terrestrial connectivity services. The portfolio is further enhanced by the extensive suite of Plexus advanced integrated maritime IT networks and IPTV solutions.

1950’s Diner

Inspired in the Jack Rabbit Slim diner from the movie Pulp Fiction, where Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) and Vincent Vega (John Travolta) compete with an improvised “You Never Can Tell” twist dance. You will find various memorabilia from the movie itself, as well as jukebox, neon lights, and comfy booths. As with the US fast-food restaurants that were predominant in the 1960´s, it is a place for the Omni team to grab a quick coffee, have a snack or hold the occasional adhoc meetings.

LOST Lounge

Inspired in one of the greatest TV series of all time, LOST follows a bunch of survivors on a mysterious and remote island somewhere in the South Pacific Ocean. In our LOST lounge you will feel like you have stepped into a mysterious realm, you find a section of Oceanic Airlines Flight 815 (a Boeing 777 replica) through which you will enter into an underground food hall that can seat upwards of 100 people. The LOST Lounge also features a kitchen with a pantry filled with food reserves, music equipment, a small gym, bathroom with shower, an “under construction” games room, and our custom “Omni” Kombi.
