|YahClick, the broadband satellite solutions provider for home and business has partnered with iDirect.net to launch a Virtual Network Operator (VNO) services across YahClick’s existing footprint.
YahClick’s VNO offering is based on the industry changing capability in the VT iDirect Evolution® platform and allows service partners to purchase their own bulk capacity, which they can fully manage and configure themselves to offer differentiated services.
Commenting on the introduction of the VNO service, David Murphy, Yahsat’s Chief Commercial Officer said, “This development allows service partners to gain access to high-speed and economical capacity over Ka-band, while enjoying full control and management of their allotted capacity. We are excited to be collaborating with VT iDirect on this development, offering our existing and future customers flexibility and cost effectiveness, combined with the highest levels of technical support and wide satellite broadband coverage.”
YahClick’s VNO services include the fact that service partners will receive Ka-band High Throughput capacity using YahClick’s Y1B satellite coverage area, which they will then be able to manage utilising the VT iDirect Platform. There are no upfront costs or CAPEX required by service partners in order to start selling YahClick VNO services, which are quick and easy to deploy and enable service partners to operate as a Satellite Network Operator.
Service Partners will also be able to commission, control and monitor their own remote sites, while designing and configuring their end to end IP network. They will have full control of their broadband satellite capacity, with the added ability to create their own service offerings.
Additional advantages of the VNO service are that service partners receive capacity either as simple Mbps (Mega Bits per Second) or Msps (Mega Symbols per Second), while the highest Quality of Service (QoS) controls are guaranteed through the use of VT iDirect features. Service partners are empowered to create private networks, offer higher uplink speeds, and address enterprise market needs, which might extend to cellular backhaul; Internet Service Provider (ISP) offerings; rural telephony; disaster management; or distance learning.
