CG AltegroSky is preparing to provide services at "Express-AM5" Ka-band in the Far East.

CG AltegroSky arranges high-speed satellite links in Ka-band through satellite "Express-AM5" in the Far East.

The unique power of this resource will allow B2B and B2C markets to have the Internet access in the Far East region at high speeds: up to 45 Mbps in the outroute and up to 10 Mbps in the inroute channels. Service will be based on the new platform Jupiter and satellite modem HT1100 from Hughes Network Systems, which are the most innovative and have no analogues in the world. The tarification will be affordable and understandable, will include unlimit tariffs. This will allow subscribers to choose the best data plan and avoid inefficient use of their finances.

Launching a new service in the test operation is planned for the end of March 2015. The Ka-band Internet today is one the most value-added services in satellite communications, and will implement a wide range of services and a variety of applications. According to the head of CG AltegroSky Sergey Pekhterev, the number of new connections can be hundreds of subscribers per month. He also said: "At the moment, when negative effects of the economic crisis are more clearly visible, it is optimal to introduce new innovative technologies that significantly improve the parameters of the service and its consumer value for customers. To my opinion, satellite broadband Ka-band is the solution that could be a sort of "magic wand" for us this year.

In turn, the head of JSC "Race Telecom" Vitaly Kramar said: "The new platform Jupiter for the first time in the Russian satellite communications will achieve the performance of the satellite network, comparable with terrestrial data networks."
