A unique low-cost 100% 1+1 Twoobii satellite solution Mining operations are often at remote locations far beyond the reach of conventional technologies such as fibre, LTE or 4G/5G. Then a special Twoobii solution is the only option for operations that demand 100% communication uptime, cost within budget plus no on-site 3rd level technical support. For […]

  Emerging Trends in the Satellite Industry! While the characteristics of launch vehicles vary widely, the ultimate goal is always to move payload into space. Satellite launch costs are therefore a fundamental input block in terms of driving the satellite business case and determining service price points. SpaceX has been phenomenally successful in reducing launch […]

Reflecting On 2021 As the sun sets on another year we reflect on past opportunities, challenges, and achievements. We think about the changing nature of life, the need to appreciate every moment and the strength gained from a helping hand and a friendly smile. For Q-KON as part of the satellite industry, it has been […]

Satellites Are Dead! Long Live Satellites! EngineerIT Editor Hans van de Groenendaal led the industry panel discussion on the current satellite industry status and future expectations. Q-KON appreciated the opportunity to participate and share our views with this respected forum. Today’s smart satellite networks, such as Twoobii-on-Flex service incorporates advanced data communication features which seamlessly […]

  Learn about why Satellite is the new cost-effective solution for retail In this economic climate, no retailer can afford to have any network downtime. Until recently the go to solution for point-of-sale systems was the easy to deploy, LTE data access.  The time has come to look at the alternatives. Twoobii satellite solution is […]

  Smart satellite solutions in action Keeping People Moving Smart Satellite services are increasingly delivering real-world solutions that are saving businesses time, money, and hassle through providing failsafe communications solutions. Q-KON, recently completed a project with Gijima for Shell which was seeking to enhance their business systems and customer experience. In a nutshell, the requirement […]

  Satellite enables Cloud Services Why do you even want satellite as part of your cloud network? If the default connectivity option is MPLS, and it works, why change? Two very clear reasons: 1) Cost of the MPLS; and  2) Connectivity availability. Satellite access circuits is not a competing technology… it is an alternative solution. Meaning […]

Why Uncapped is short-term Why does this happen? Why? It is like UNCAPPED is a sort of broadband drug for Telco’s. It is irresistible, with lots of short-term happiness, with an inevitable end linked to dire consequences.

5G Health Risk Perspective The recent deployment of 5G mobile networks has created much debate on the possible health risks. Given that 5G relates more to a “network-of-networks architecture” and that mobile deployments are only one element of evolving 5G networks, the health debate should probably be more around the risks of multiple small cell […]

Satellite VS LTE As Backup Services Physics and network technology fundamentals make satellite services, the most effective, highest spec back-up services. Yet while this is true, then why is satellite not used as a back-up by every network engineer and specified by every customer request. To understand this paradox we can translate user requirements for […]
