Kacific switches to AWS for rural connectivity in Asia-Pac

In order to scale up the delivery of its broadband internet for the rural regions of Southeast Asia and the Pacific, Kacific Broadband Satellites will migrate its IT infrastructure and critical business applications to Amazon Web Services (AWS) by 2022.

AWS has enabled Kacific to reduce time-to-market, enhance network management by approximately 50%, and respond more rapidly to customer requests and needs. These gains in productivity and quality of service, achieved by leveraging AWS technologies like compute, storage, and databases, in combination with Kacific’s commitment to providing affordable connectivity, have improved healthcare outcomes, educational opportunities, and disaster recovery capabilities for millions of people living in remote areas of Southeast Asia and the Pacific.

By migrating its IT support systems to the AWS, Kacific is taking a “cloud-first” approach to provide accessible, high-quality, low-cost broadband internet connectivity enabling it to connect subscribers to its rapidly expanding network.

“Kacific is connecting nations across the Asia Pacific so that people in rural and even the most remote areas have the same access to information and services as the urban population,” said Kacific Chief Executive Officer, Christian Patouraux. “With AWS, we now have added agility to rapidly scale as demand grows.”

Peter Moore, Regional Managing Director for Public Sector, Asia Pacific and Japan at AWS, said: “Internet connectivity is fundamental to improving the lives of people globally. By leveraging AWS technologies, Kacific has scaled its services securely to meet customer demand for internet connectivity, bringing the people of our region together.”
