The new O3b solution utilises medium earth orbit satellites at much lower altitudes. This means that O3b can offer fibre-like speeds with lower latency, supporting new cloud-based enterprise and interactive consumer applications.
“O3b is an ideal partner for Palau Telecoms because of its low latency and high bandwidth, which offer a significant improvement on what has traditionally been available via geostationary satellites. This will enable Palau Telecoms to deliver more services reliably at a higher quality for our customers in 2014,” says Sam Masang, CEO of Palau Telecoms.
Steve Collar, O3b’s CEO, adds: “We are delighted to welcome Palau Telecoms to the O3b family. After exceptionally successful tests of our constellation at the end of 2013, we know that O3b will provide Palau Telecoms a high-performance, middle-mile solution that will transform the services they can bring to the population of Palau. Web browsing and search will be ultra-fast, businesses can use new software-as-a-service apps and there will be no time to get coffee while a file downloads. We are proud to be a part of Palau Telecoms efforts to provide vital IP infrastructure to the citizens of Palau.”
