Satellite Yealink

Satellite Broadband for All!

YahClick is a cutting-edge satellite broadband internet service enabling faster, reliable and affordable broadband to urban and remote areas. Yahclick is made available in South Africa through a partnership between Vox Telecom and Yahsat, which uses proven technology to offer Ka-band satellite services.

 

This technology maximises spectral efficiency through frequency re-use. While this sounds rather technical, it means that Yahsat can provide high power, concentrated beams targeted over specific areas with high market potential.

The ability to re-use frequencies in different locations enables greater efficiency in the use of the frequency spectrum, a scarce and finite natural resource. The stronger satellite signals require smaller dish sizes and ultimately bring down costs to subscribers. Vox Telecom is the South African service partner and will be offering a variety of YahClick Service plans and value added products.

   

Vox Telecom bundle hardware and software services to offer tailor-made packages for specific markets and user segments in South Africa. Yahclick will fast track the deployment of broadband service and bring the internet to millions of underserved people and organisations at costs comparable to terrestrial services.

About YahClick

Connectivity provides a solution to one of mankind's most basic needs: communication. However, for many people around South Africa (and indeed the rest of the world) communication in the form of internet connectivity remains a highly expensive and unviable option. This lack of service infrastructure has presented Vox Telecom, in partnership with Al Yah Satellite Communications Company PJSC (Yahsat), with an opportunity to provide much needed satellite services to a wide range of "remote site" areas in both rural and urban environments around the country.

 

Vox & Yahsat will offer a cutting-edge broadband satellite service to South African consumers and businesses that will deliver reliable, high-speed internet connectivity to users in areas with limited or no internet access, at costs comparable to current terrestrial services. Yahsat selected Vox Telecom as a service partner to roll out this unique broadband offering to South Africa. Yahsat is a private joint stock company fully owned by Mubadala, the investment arm of the Government of Abu Dhabi (the capital of the United Arab Emirates).

Mubadala is well established in the UAE and abroad, and manages a multi-billion dollar portfolio of local, regional and international projects and investments in strategic sectors, including the energy, real estate, healthcare, aerospace and services sectors. Mubadala currently invests in businesses such as General Electric, AMD & The Carlyle Group, amongst others. YahClick is Yahsat's broadband solution. The YahClick product is cost effective, versatile and suitable for multiple segments, including consumers, SMEs and corporates with remote sites requiring reliable, fast internet access.

On top of investment in the new satellites, Yahsat is investing in advanced ground segment infrastructure, which includes four gateways. Yahsat's new Y1B satellite employs Ka-band technology and has 55 active spot beams via Ka multi-spot beams with an EIRP (Equivalent Isotropically Radiated Power) of up to 66 dBW and reusable frequencies to maximise spectrum efficiency. While traditional satellite technology utilises broad single beams covering entire continents and regions, YahClick's Ka-band spot beams provide coverage over highly targeted areas (a smaller footprint on the ground), which simply means more reliability, greater efficiencies on the ground, smaller antennas and lower costs for the end user, as well as the elimination of issues with spectrum availability. With terminals that can support speeds of up to 16Mbps, there will be no shortage of high-speed bandwidth. It is predicted that by 2015 internet penetration in South Africa will be around 6.7 million and satellite-specific internet penetration will be around 130,000. YahClick & Vox Telecom's satellite broadband packages will assist with fast tracking economic development by connecting underserved and unserved environments and offer connectivity to these communities at terrestrial rates.

Suddenly businesses & communities will be able to operate more efficiently online and interact with the rest of the world in a manner previously unobtainable. The partnership with Yahsat presents a perfect opportunity to enhance Vox's range of cost-saving broadband services across the country. The YahClick Ka-band consumer & business broadband service compliments Vox's vision of providing the widest possible range of telco products and services to consumers & businesses.
