Yahsat Seeks to Expand Y1B Satellite Broadband Services Via Hughes-Built VSAT Platform - top government contractors - best government contracting eventAl Yah Satellite Communications has placed an order for the Hughes Network Systems-built very small aperture terminal in an effort to expand Yahsat“™s broadband services and other offerings delivered through its Ka-band Y1B satellite.

The Hughes-built Jupiter System is a VSAT platform that integrates the DVB-S2X air interface standard through the company“™s second-generation system-on-a-chip, a very large scale integration processor that facilitates 200 megabytes per second of throughput, Hughes said Wednesday.

Yahsat expects the Jupiter System to increase the bandwidth for YahClick, a satellite broadband service that works to support companies and government agencies in Central and South West Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

Yahsat also plans to use Hughes“™ VSAT to support services that will be offered through its third Ka-band high-throughput satellite, Al Yah 3.

Al Yah 3 is slated for launch in early 2017 and will work to expand Yahsat“™s presence in Africa and Brazil.

Yahsat is a private joint stock firm wholly owned by Mubadala Development and offers satellite services such as YahClick, YahService, YahLink and Yahlive through its two Ka-band satellites, Y1A and Y1B.
