Kacific taps ABS' ground infrastructure for its gateway services to the Philippines

As Kacific plans for the launch of its Kacific1 satellite later in the year, it has selected ABS for its ground infrastructure, the company said.

ABS´ teleport in Subic Bay, the Philippines, will host, operate and provide first level support for its gateway hub.

Kacific1 will be a pioneering High Throughput Satellite (HTS) to be located over Asia-Pacific using Ka-band spot beams for extremely cost-efficient broadband delivery. Its 56 powerful high throughput beams will cover select areas over the Pacific Islands and South East Asia, with six beams covering The Philippines archipelago and a further 21 beams covering Indonesia, Timor-Leste and Malaysia.

ABS is a global satellite operator and offers a complete range of tailored solutions including broadcasting, data and telecommunication services to broadcasters, service providers, enterprises and government organizations.

Kacific Broadband Satellites Group is a satellite operator providing high-speed broadband for underserved, remote and rural markets with disseminated pockets of population. It addresses the gap in supply with specifically designed satellites using the latest multi-beam and high throughput space communications and ground technology transmitting over the Ka Band.
