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 th

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

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

Introduction: Shipwreck Lodge is luxurious self-catering lodge located in Pomene, Mozambique. In 1960 a ship called the Berea was shipwrecked on the South Beach and parts of the ship were still on the beach when The Shipwreck Lodge was being built a few years ago. This part of Mozambique is hidden away and undoubtedly hold some of the most diverse and unspoilt waters along the east coast

The Critical Role For Satellite In A 5G Environment   Why even mention satellite in a 5G context? VSAT is slow, expensive and has a latency problem – right? Maybe not. If you still remember the satellite networks of the 1980’s and 1990’s then that was true – however today this is just a myth and no longer valid. Extensive and fundamental developments in space networks and groun
