Until now, satellite was not considered a viable or cost-effective option for internet. However, advances in satellite technology have made it a very affordable solution for individuals and, more importantly, for companies that want to ensure total business continuity under all circumstances.
Cable Wise manager, Quentin Wadmore said that, unlike most terrestrial alternatives, satellite networks can be rolled out quickly and relatively inexpensively, connecting farms and lodges that are in remote locations to the information highway. "Satellite networks are easily scalable, allowing users to expand their communications networks and their available bandwidth easily."
Maxwell has also introduced a unique satellite-based connectivity solution, specifically aimed at consumers in the SME market. This solution is also ideally suited for the agricultural and hospitality industries, both of which often operate from areas without broadband.
Flexible, universal, reliable and quickly deployable
Maxwell's technical director,
"Leveraging satellite-enabled broadband also makes good business sense for companies that want to extend their reach, improve efficiency and protect their business assets. And within urban areas, satellite Internet can be used to provide primary connectivity to homes and small businesses where broadband is currently inaccessible," he explained.
Satellite networks can be easily integrated to complement, augment or extend any communications network. They help overcome geographical barriers, terrestrial network limitations and other constraining infrastructure issues.
"With this new offering, we believe Cable Wise has taken the next big step in providing affordable, reliable broadband Internet connectivity to all underserviced and non-serviced areas in Northern KwaZulu-Natal," concluded Wadmore.
