ABS has entered into a strategic partnership with one of the largest telcos in SE Asia for the delivery of 500Mbps of IP backbone services on ABS-2 at 75°E.

“ABS is proud to be awarded this contract with one of the largest telecom operators in Southeast Asia for expansion IP backbone capacity. At half a gigabit per second, it represents a significant milestone for ABS for the delivery of GEO-based connectivity services. We strive to guarantee both affordability and fiber-like reliability,” said Thomas Choi, co-founder and CEO of ABS.

He added: “Our partner had previously been using a non-GEO Ka-Band solution. ABS had heard numerous complaints from end-users in the market who could no longer tolerate the frequent outages and downtimes associated with non-GEO Ka-band backbone networks. We have the experience and a proven track record of delivering reliable, multi-gigabits of capacity to customers in the Asia Pacific to Africa regions. Despite all the recent LEO/MEO & Ka/V-band buzz in the market, ABS continues to demonstrate that traditional GEO-based C & Ku-band services provide the necessary high capacity delivered at affordable pricing with simple and low-cost user terminals. We expect to win many more contracts for replacement and expansion capacity from dis-satisfied customers of the NGSO hype.”
