Hispasat's Brazilian subsidiary, Hispamar Satellites, will launch satellite services for the leading companies in the sector, including solutions based on Ka-band frequency, most suited for new Internet satellite services.
Hispasat is scheduled to launch three new satellites in 2017. Hispasat 36W-1, Amazonas 5, and Hispasat 30W-6 will join the group's fleet of satellites in order to increase telephone and audiovisual services, corporate networks, and broadband Internet, amongst other telecommunication solutions. The three satellites will offer coverage in the Americas and have Ka-band technology, in line with the company's commitment for the Latin American market.
The company's offering Ka-band for Latin America will maintain its commitment to this technology as it reduces the unit cost of satellite services for Internet access, making it more competitive and helping to extend it to a larger number of people, not only those with greater purchasing power. Thus, a majority of citizens would have general access to the global network and greater demand could be generated in Brazil as well as other countries in the region.
Hispamar is attempting to offer greater added value to its customers. To this end, they will develop strategic agreements with technology partners that will enable them to offer complete solutions to end customers.
