Kymeta Technology Used to Provide Reliable Satellite Connectivity in Asia Where Terrestrial Networks are Unavailable

Kymeta and Sky Perfect JSAT Corporation (SJC) have successfully completed the first Asia-based satellite connectivity deployment of Kymeta mTenna technology. The implementation combines satellite capacity through the J5A SJC satellite with Kymeta’s flat panel, electronically-steered mTennau7 antenna subsystem module (ASM) to demonstrate the ability to provide uninterrupted, reliable connectivity on the move, and where terrestrial networks are unavailable.

During KyTrek 3 across Japan, a Kymeta mTennau7 ASM was embedded between the roof and the headliner of a Toyota Land Cruiser. The vehicle then demonstrated continuous on-the-move connectivity that can be utilized to ensure first responders can communicate on the way to a natural disaster, when cellular networks may become compromised, as well as while they move around the disaster zone.

SJC has been utilizing Kymeta mTenna technology for several weeks, demonstrating the capabilities and benefits of the solution for many organizations across Tokyo. The deployment here in Japan has demonstrated how valuable this solution will be for first responders all over the globe. First responders require reliable, uninterrupted connectivity in life or death situations and as recent natural disasters have shown, terrestrial communication infrastructure is letting first responders down when time and reliability matter most. Kymeta mTennau7 ASMs perform bi-directional communication, even in the most remote areas of Japan, by connecting to satellites like SJC GEO satellites, for daily use and in crisis situations.

Kymeta’s cost-effective, low-power technology makes wireless internet access and phone calls possible from vehicles that could never take advantage of satellite connectivity before. Click here to lear more about Kymeta's technology.
