CompuDyne to Use SES Capacity for Backhaul in Malaysia
CompuDyne is partnering with SES Networks to bring expand its cellular backhaul services to both East and West Malaysia and its surrounding islands. SES announced that CompuDyne signed a multi-year, multi-transponder agreement to lease Ku-band capacity on SES 9, SES’ largest satellite serving Asia-Pacific, for its customer Digi, a Mobile Network Operator (MNO) in the region.
Making a shift from a C-band to Ku-band system, CompuDyne can now deliver more cost-effective and reliable satellite connectivity, enabling Digi to extend its cellular network to underserved consumers residing in rural areas and in the far reaches of Malaysia. At the same time, Digi also plans to use the capacity to introduce mobile broadband services and packages for an increasingly connected population.
“In the eastern and western parts of Malaysia, there is incredible growth in mobile broadband usage today from both business and consumers. Utilizing Ku-band capacity on SES 9, our customers have the opportunity to tap into this rising demand and offer improved services and greater value for end-users,” said Dato’ Mohd Hanafiah A. Jalil, managing director at CompuDyne.
