KBZ Gateway chooses Hughes satellite backhaul solution to bring cellular mobile connectivity to people outside the reach of terrestrial networks
Yangon, June 18, 2019– KBZ Gateway Company Limited (KBZ Gateway), the fastest growing VSAT and Teleport Service Provider in Myanmar, today announced that it has chosen the Hughes JUPITER™ System from Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the world’s leading provider of broadband satellite networks and services, to expand the cellular network reach of its customer, a leading Mobile Network Operator (MNO) in Myanmar and internationally. The JUPITER System enables a satellite backhaul solution for the MNO to extend services cost-effectively across hundreds of cell site locations outside the reach of terrestrial fixed networks, bringing connectivity to millions of Myanmar nationals. It also lays the foundation for 4G implementations as well as enhanced enterprise network offerings throughout the nation.
“As a Hughes customer for many years, we know the value Hughes brings in its JUPITER technology and in managing network deployments effectively,” said Mr. Naing Tun Kyaw, managing director, KBZ Gateway. Mr. Virender Singh, CTO, KBZ Gateway, added, “With Hughes, we are able to implement a commercially sustainable proposition that meets our customer’s current and future technical requirements for extending mobile reach throughout Myanmar.”
“We are proud to partner with KBZ Gateway to help them deliver a solution that helps bridge the digital divide in Myanmar,” said Vaibhav Magow, assistant vice president, International Division, Hughes. “KBZ Gateway knows the advantages of the JUPITER System first-hand in yielding the highest possible performance, efficiency and economics for a satellite solution that helps connect the unconnected.”
The Hughes JUPITER System has the packet processing capability to support speeds up to 300 Mbps and acceleration of 16,000 TCP sessions, both of which are essential features for powering applications with multiple users, such as cellular backhaul. The ability to achieve reduced spacing as well as 8PSK and 16APSK modulation on the return channel yields higher bandwidth efficiency and lower service cost for operators. Moreover, the system is designed with 4G backhaul in mind, accelerating traffic to yield reductions in recurring operational costs.
