Using the HYLAS 2 spacecraft, TS2 now provides high- speed data services to Iraq, Syria and Armenia. The HYLAS 2 satellite carries 24 active Ka-band user beams and six gateway beams. The Ka-band spot beams are providing two-way communications services to facilitate high-speed delivery of data to end-user applications such as corporate networking, broadband Internet access, business continuity services and video distribution.
With the launch of new Ka-Band service on Hylas-2, TS2 is proud to introduce latest technology to customers in Iraq, Syria and Armenia. New service allows downlink speeds up to 20Mbps, five times the previous maximum, using a smaller antenna. Higher performance is gained at a much lower cost, which allows up to four times higher connection speed at the same cost, if compared to previous Ku-band service, without compromising connection reliability and stability.
