With the launch of new Ka-Band service on Hylas-2, TS2 is proud to introduce a latest technology to customers in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Syria, Armenia, Libya, Tajikistan, Tunisia, Montenegro, Greece, Italy, Albania and Malta
New service allows downlink speeds up to 20Mbps, five times the previous maximum, using a smaller antenna. Higher performance is gained at a much lower cost, which allows up to four times higher connection speed at the same cost, if compared to previous Ku-band service, without compromising connection reliability and stability.
The HYLAS 2 satellite carries 24 active Ka-band user beams and six gateway beams. The Ka-band spot beams are providing two-way communications services to facilitate high-speed delivery of data to end-user applications such as corporate networking, broadband Internet access, business continuity services and video distribution.
New Ka-band service is based on the same, field-tested and proven technology provided by iDirect. Ka-band service requires a smaller antenna, reducing the equipment and transportation costs and making the installation easier.
Hylas-2 has three times the capacity of Hylas-1 and some 40 separate beams, each covering a different fixed area, plus one steerable beam which can be directed anywhere. Up to twenty-five beams can be active at any one time. The extra beams give some flexibility in the areas that TS2 can serve.
