The growth of internet of things (IOT) connected devices will boost satellite-based connectivity across the globe. So says Dr Dawie de Wet, group CEO of Q-KON and chief engineer for Twoobii, a Southern African-supported satellite broadband service. The Ericsson 2021 Mobility Report forecasts that by 2027, there will be over 30 billion IOT connected devices in use globally. Previously, De

Innovation in the satellite industry has reached new heights with new services being brought to fruition through the launch of LEO (Low Earth Orbit), MEO (Medium Earth Orbit) and GEO (Geostationary or Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit) constellations. In addition, the advantages of software-defined satellites are becoming more apparent to the telecommunications industry. With data rates of up to 10

Using maths to dispel myths. It is not new, by now UNCAPPED broadband on RF mediums has a predictable market profile. It starts with great media hype, mostly by a new telco or for a new service, full of promises and user testament of how great the service is. Then it goes quiet with the now-and-then positive publicity often linked to profitable financial result reporting. Then the beginning of the

Adding the critical layer for network resilience A Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is a virtual WAN architecture that allows enterprises to leverage any combination of transport services – including MPLS, LTE and broadband internet services – to securely connect users to applications. The responsibility of network architects is always to balance cost, business risks and networ

The lowest cost option to ensure 100% service uptime. In November 2019 MyBroadband reported the following fibre network statistics: - Telkom 164,000km; Vodacom 33,000km; Liquid Telecom 21,000km; MTN 21,000km; DFA 13,000km; Vumatel 8,000km - quite significant fibre networks and growing daily. Why then do you still need satellite? Contrary to popular belief, there are several

The Art Of Buying An Invisible Product When you cannot touch, see or feel the product and the product brochure is full of terminology and jargon that you do not understand – then how do you select the best service? How do you know to select the provider best suited to meet your specific needs and then what specific service must you choose for the application you have? Although this scenar

New financial benefits for a proven solution Satellite services are reliable – no discussion, no argument. Yes but… it is expensive and it is slow…. Or so many people argue from inputs remembered in past discussions or perhaps from their own past experiences. Well, if that is still your view, it is time for an update. Much has changed in the satellite broadband industry, from new sa

A technology perspective on the possible health risks of 5G The recent deployment of 5G mobile networks has created much debate on the possible health risks due to higher signal radiation. So widespread is this debate that even we, as a satellite service provider, have received concerns about 5G and the possible health risks of satellite services. In response to these respected customer concer

Defining the key reasons why satellite is an attractive option VSAT Broadband Satellite Internet Network reliability – customers need it, yet don’t want to pay for it, and network architects want to deliver it, yet are not using the most effective tool. Physics and network fundamentals make satellite services, the most effective, highest spec back-up services. If this is true, then why
