Kacific brings Ka-band enterprise backup to Asia-Pacific

Next-generation broadband satellite operator, Kacific says it has introduced Asia-Pacific’s first HTS (high throughout satellite) Ka-band enterprise backup service, which is described as a service that protects organisations against outages that, it says, happen all too frequently.

It is also, says Kacific, the first enterprise backup service in the Asia-Pacific region designed to take advantage of the speed, efficiency and flexibility of Ka-band satellite connectivity.

Kacific Enterprise Backup provides what is described as an affordable on-demand, hot-backup package that allows organisations, factories, and enterprise branches that rely heavily on real-time business operations to continue with normal activities if their primary internet access is compromised.

The service includes installation of a satellite dish at each site, and a choice of low-cost per-month, per-site backup plans depending on the organisation’s size and needs. Working like an insurance premium, a minimal fee is paid for the site to act as a backup. In the case of an outage, high-speed first-priority bandwidth can be instantly activated and a fixed fee will be charged.

The advantages of Ka-band for enterprise backup, says Kacific, include the reuse of Ka-band spectrum over spot beams; this creates higher capacity than traditional, wide coverage area satellites. 

The solution also offers download speeds up to 70Mbps and upload speeds of up to 20Mbps. In addition, using a diversity site for uplink, Kacific Ka-band infrastructure is able to achieve up to 99.93% availability.

Enterprise Backup is now commercially available to ISPs, telecom operators, businesses and governments in countries Kacific serves throughout Asia and the Pacific.
