Yahsat’s satellite broadband service, YahClick, is to offer a new transportable terminal service called YahClick Go, which has been designed to allow broadband connectivity reportedly anywhere in YahClick’s coverage range.
The new service, which was launched at Cabsat 2012, the Middle East’s largest digital media and satellite expo, has been established, according to Yahsat, to meet the demand of organisations and businesses operating in sectors such as media and journalism, oil and gas; government and NGOs, that require internet connectivity even in the remotest locations.
Yahsat CEO, Tareq Abdul Raheem Al Hosani, commented: “YahClick Go is a great addition to our YahClick business, which will officially commence this year with the launch of our second satellite Y1B in April.”
YahClick Go’s user terminals allow, according to Yahsat, instant internet access via an auto pointing antenna, which is easily mountable on vehicles and can be operated by a single user.
By using the high bandwidth Ka band frequency, rather the L band Ku band, users of YahClick Go will be able to achieve high speeds to uplink and downlink increasingly large files and video content, where existing L-band technology cannot deliver this, and existing Ku band supply increasingly less able to meet demand.
YahClick is a breakthrough satellite broadband service for users in the Middle East, Africa and South West Asia. With YahClick, customers are offered uninterrupted high-speed internet usage from the moment they go live with the launch of the second satellite, YahSat 1B.The Yahsat 1B satellite uses state of the art Ka band multi spot-beam technology, achieving cost-effective bandwidth supply.
