YahClick Teams with iDirect for HTS VNO Services
[Via Satellite 08-29-2016] YahClick, the home and business broadband arm of Yahsat, has partnered with VT iDirect for the introduction of Virtual Network Operator (VNO) services across its existing footprint. The VNO service will leverage YahClick’s Ka-band network combined with the iDirect Evolution platform, allowing service partners full control and management of their allotted capacity.
YahClick’s VNO service partners will receive Ka-band High Throughput Satellite (HTS) capacity using YahClick’s Y1B satellite coverage area, which they will then be able to manage with the VT iDirect platform. There are no upfront costs or Capital Expenditures (CAPEX) required by service partners in order to start selling YahClick VNO services, which enable service partners to function as satellite network operators.
Service partners will also be able to commission, control and monitor their own remote sites, while designing and configuring their end-to-end IP network. They will have full control of their broadband satellite capacity, with the added ability to create their own service offerings. The new service is targeted to meet the high Quality of Service (QoS) demands of enterprise and government customers.
“YahClick is keen to continue expanding its product portfolio and user cases, and we believe the introduction of our VNO service will tap into new market segments and users, who will help bolster our overall offerings further,” said David Murphy, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), Yahsat.
