Kacific Broadband Satellites is introducing a new backhaul service targeting ISPs and telcos in Asia and the Pacific, the company announced November 22. The Ka-band mobile backhaul service, called ‘Mobile Backhaul,’ was developed and tested in 2020 and has connected key operators in Asia and the Pacific.

Kacific has now made it commercially available to all ISPs, telecom operators, and government agencies across all the countries it serves through Asia and the Pacific.

Mobile Backhaul will be part of Kacific’s FlexVNO solution set, which aims to deliver dedicated wholesale Ka-band satellite bandwidth to telecom operators, who can then tailor it to meet their customers’ needs. A customized offering, Mobile Backhaul is a transport network solution that connects the core network with cell sites — the Radio Access Network (RAN) – on the mobile network. It delivers a rapidly deployable broadband solution with small, easy-to-install, and simple-to-maintain satellite dishes. That allows mobile operators to flexibly provide 3G and 4G coverage to end users, connecting them to any small cell or regular mobile tower.

“Mobile Backhaul is a highly flexible, customised solution that addresses some of the most pressing challenges faced by telecom operators. It allows operators to solve problems of remote connectivity, urban congestion, and efficient bandwidth utilisation by taking full advantage of FlexVNO’s, power and versatility,” Brandon Seir, Kacific’s Chief Commercial Officer said in a statement.
