At IBC 2012, Yahsat promoted its newly-launched YahClick satellite broadband service which provides internet connectivity to urban, rural and remote communities in un-served and underserved markets across the Middle East, Africa, Central and South West Asia regions.
In addition, the team previewed YahClick Go, a new transportable service that allows broadband connectivity reportedly anywhere in YahClick’s coverage range. Currently under testing and certification, YahClick Go is designed to meet the requirements of organisations and businesses operating in sectors that require internet connectivity in changing remote locations, such as media and journalism, oil and gas, government, and non-government organisations .
Commenting on Yahsat’s participation, Tareq Abdul Raheem Al Hosani, CEO, Yahsat said: “IBC2012 provided us with an excellent opportunity to communicate our business offering to industry experts and a global audience. Our team was able to interact with a host of professionals and showcase the power of the YahClick service.”
“YahClick included a wide portfolio of service offerings for mainstream and niche applications to suit multiple business needs. Through YahClick, customers can unlock a world of potential with access to Internet connectivity for fixed and changing locations where terrestrial services are not suitable congested, or simply not available.”
YahClick Go’s user terminals reportedly allow instant internet access via an auto pointing antenna, which is mountable on vehicles and can be operated by a single user. By using the high bandwidth Ka band frequency, users of YahClick Go will, the company claims, be able to achieve high speeds to uplink and downlink increasingly large files and video content overcoming supply and speed limitations of a number of existing technologies.
