Who are we?
Starview builds high-speed communications infrastructure, and private clouds to power the most demanding workloads. We integrate our Patents and Intellectual Properties of our own products, with third-party solutions to offer unprecedented values and propositions to our customers.
We are passionate about pushing the envelope in technology, harnessing the latest, fastest and best technologies to meet our customer’s requirements, and at the same time, breaking the barriers in price and performance.
“Infinite Possibilities” is our ideal and inspiration for Starview. Everyone in Starview is empowered to achieve what the mind can conceive and believe. The infinity logo represents that inspiration. The 3 colours within the logo, red, green and blue are the primary colours of light, and when combined in different ratios, gives an almost infinite range of colours. Colours of light also represents the legacy of Starview when she was first founded, with the introduction of the world’s first programmable transceiver.
Optical transmission uses different colours of light to increase the capacity of networks. The red within the infinity logo shapes with an “S”, an indication of Starview embedded within infinity, and passionate in all that we set out to do.
