Tata Communications on Thursday (28 November) said that it has partnered Kacific Broadband Satellites Group to provide connectivity and cyber security services to the Singapore-based company.
"Kacific has selected it to provide terrestrial connectivity services as it readies for the launch of its first satellite, "Kacific1". Tata Communications would provide global internet and cyber security services for Kacific's Ka-band satellite network," it said in a regulatory filing to the Bombay Stock Exchange.
"Tata Communications has a highly skilled network and security team and a leading edge technology that will support the Kacific1 satellite IP delivery network to deliver optimal and redundant performance across the region. Relying on that network, the Kacific satellite system will make internet connectivity affordable for millions of people who are currently unserved or underserved," said Kacific CEO, Christian Patouraux.
The filing said that Kacific will benefit from the Tata Communications' advanced sub-sea fibre network.
"Kacific1" is a high throughput satellite (HTS) that will use 56 high-power "Ka-band" beams to deliver affordable, high-speed broadband to telecommunications companies, internet service providers and governments in South East Asia and the Pacific.
