UAE communications company makes move to expand
The system is developed by Hughes Network Systems, a global leader in broadband satellite solutions and services.
"The demand for more services and higher performance is growing in all markets," Marcus Vilaca, chief technical officer at Yahsat, said. "Maximizing bandwidth is a high priority across all of our segments as it provides cost-effective solutions to our service partners and end-users. The JUPITER System gives us the highest level of bandwidth efficiency on the market today."
Through YahClick, Yahsat delivers satellite broadband services to consumers, business and governments in the Middle East, Africa and Central and Southwest Asia. The JUPITER addition will let the company continue to scale while maintaining its customer service and performance.
"Even as capacity grows with major HTS satellite launches over the next few years, providers need to use bandwidth as efficiently as possible to meet steadily growing demand," Dave Jupin, senior vice president of international operations at Hughes, said. "By increasing the amount of scalable and guaranteed serviceable bandwidth on each satellite, JUPITER gives providers the flexibility to offer new services while maintaining top performance."
