AsiaSat 9 to be launched in Myanmar this year
In late 2017, AsiaSat will launch the world’s first dedicated Myanmar beam, bringing more power and enhanced coverage to the country and a commitment to deliver the best service to all customers.
With AsiaSat 9 boasting the most powerful EIRP in C and Ku-Band so far and an excellent ‘look angle’, demands of industrial and business connectivity for the likes of Mining, Oil and Gas, and Banking will be met. AsiaSat is also connecting Myanmar to offer entertainment in television and live sports events in the highest quality the country has seen,.
Satellite technology has been fundamental in the development of Myanmar’s communication infrastructure, and with the very first satellite AsiaSat 1 launched in 1990. AsiaSat is proud to commit once again the expertise needed to bring connectivity to the people, particularly those in remote areas where long stretches of land hamper access to modern fiber networks.
AsiaSat 4 at 122°E is serving areas of Myanmar right now, with companies such as KBZ Gateway Company Limited utilising VSAT capabilities. The company is also currently using capacity on AsiaSat 7’s Ku-band, alongside other Myanmar customers including Seanet, and King Royal Technologies Co Ltd. With the increased C-band power and a customised Ku-band on AsiaSat 9, AsiaSat will be positioned to serve Myanmar better, and to an expanding portfolio of customers and end users.
