[Via Satellite 11-16-2016] Bluewave, a local telecoms operator in Myanmar, has selected Eutelsat’s IP Easy solution to jumpstart a new satellite broadband service throughout the country. Commercialized from today, the service will offer speeds of up to 12 Mbps and will be operational from first quarter of 2016 using capacity on Eutelsat 70B. The satellite covers all of Myanmar, a country characterized by a wide surface area and mountainous and highland regions with limited terrestrial infrastructure.
The new service uses Newtec’s Sat3Play VSAT broadband platform as well as MDM2200 IP satellite modems, antennas and interactive Low Noise Block downconverters (LNBs). End users can install the equipment thanks to a “Point & Play” system. The set-up is compact with similar antenna sizes to satellite TV antennas.
“The solution enables us to provide best-in-class, global connectivity services at a critical time of rapid economic and social development in Myanmar, with high-quality services especially tailored to enable all communities to fully seize opportunities to contribute to the long-term prosperity of the country,” said Clement Larroque, managing and operations director at Bluewave.
