Australia’s leading satellite communications company will be attending the AITEC East Africa ICT Summit 2012 in Kenya to discuss with experts, businesses and consumers the crucial role satellite communications plays in assisting information-based services.
NewSat Ltd’s Regional Head, Steve Rich, will be at the event to discuss the Jabiru Satellite Program. Over the last few years, demand for satellite capacity not only in East Africa, but across the continent has increased. Just last month the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation or CTO reported that satellite communications now have a crucial role in providing broadband access across Sub-Saharan Africa.
Since the technology is heavily sought after in the region, NewSat aims to take part in the emerging information-based economies of Africa. The Jabiru-1 satellite - the first in the program’s fleet - is already under construction and is slated for a 2014 launch. Those interested in discussing the project with Mr. Steve Rich can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call +61 3 9674 4688.
Once operational, the bird will deliver new capacity through the Ka band spectrum which presented a number of advantages over the present C and Ku bands. Some of these advantages include more flexible payloads for changing consumer demands, more efficient support of bandwidth applications, and a range of regional, multi-spot and steerable beams. The rest of the Ka band satellite fleet will also help in decongesting the already saturated Ku- and C-band.
