London Satellite Exchange (LSE)
LONDON SATELLITE EXCHANGE (LSE) is a specialist satellite communications service provider, supplying the Media, Enterprise and Government sectors Worldwide.
LSE provides tailored satcom solutions designed to their customers requirements and budget.
The core premise of LSE’s business proposition is that they are independent. They source from the widest possible selection of providers, leveraging volume discounts to ensure the ideal solution for their customers.
The London Satellite Exchange (LSE) was started in 2000 as a commission-based brokerage matching mainly spot-market buyers and sellers of satellite capacity. It still does that, but its business has expanded well beyond its origins, especially since it was purchased, in transactions in 2006 and 2008, by Astrium Satellites and subsequently moved to Toulouse, France.
LSE now buys satellite capacity, including multiyear contracts, on behalf of Astrium Services and its non-Astrium customers, and has its own 24/7 network operations center in Toulouse. Negotiating on behalf of a larger customer base, the company is able to secure better prices by agreeing to longer-term leases and greater amounts of bandwidth with satellite operators.
The results have been dramatic, as LSE more than doubled revenue between 2007 and 2009.
