Ka-band satellite services in Africa

Ka-band satellite services to boost broadband access across Africa, overcoming the challenges faced by land based cable systems and other satellite services.
Despite the advent of more than 20 optic fibre cable networks now reaching African shores, satellite services will continue to fulfil an important role in providing the telecommunications infrastructure for urban centres as well as inland and remote areas, particularly as new high capacity Ka-band satellites come on-stream.

This is the view of Soheil Mehrabanzad, assistant vice president, Middle East/Africa, Hughes Network Systems.

Speaking at a Hughes seminar alongside the SatCom Africa 2011 conference in Sandton at the end of May 2011, Mehrabanzad said Ka-band wave technology began in earnest in North America with the launch of the Hughes SPACEWAY3 satellite system in 2007. “Ka-band satellite has now become one of today’s fastest-growing technologies because of the growing demand for capacity,” he said.

Hughes is supplying its high-performance Ka-band HN broadband satellite system and terminals for the ground segment of the Yahsat 1B satellite to be launched towards the end of 2011. This will be the first Ka-band satellite to provide broadband Internet access to South Africa and other African countries.

Hughes is also providing Vodacom with its high power Ka/Ku-band terminals solutions in anticipation of the arrival of Ka-band satellite services in Africa as Vodacom propels aggressive expansion of converged service offerings in South Africa and throughout the continent.
