Satellite Internet in the Panama

How To Buy | Technical Support | Share

Located in Central America, Panama has a population of just over 4 million. It is bordered by Costa Rica, Colombia, the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. The country is home to jungle, mountains, diverse wildlife, rivers and lakes. The economy of Panama is very much service-based and commerce and trading dominates. Tourism is also a rapidly growing sector with European tourists flocking to the country to enjoy its diverse landscapes and wildlife. The copper and gold sectors are also in development and are backed by foreign investors.

The Panamanian government is engaged in efforts to improve Internet penetration which, in 2016, stood at 45.2%. The growth of the economy in panama has undoubtedly had a great impact on telecommunications in the country with plenty of international interest. The government is well aware of the importance of good communications infrastructure to the country’s economy and development and it has launched an Internet for All project which aims to give free wireless broadband access on a nationwide basis. There are also other projects such as the Broadband for Central America project which also aim to connect the as yet unconnected. Though there is still a long way to go, the government is working to push up the numbers of people who have access to the Internet which will give access to critical services such as healthcare, education, financial and governmental services. At present, in Panama, the price of high speed Internet access is high and is therefore often too expensive for many Panamanians. This is where the mobile phone has gained in popularity. For Internet browsing, the majority of Panamanians use smartphones rather than computers as it is more cost effective and the speeds are faster. Unfortunately, for those based outside of urban centres, access to either fixed line or mobile broadband become scarcer. Therefore, an alternative method of connectivity is required.

Satellite Internet Services in Panama

BusinessCom Networks have vast experience in the delivery of VSAT-based Internet services that can reach even the most remote areas of Panama. Satellite-based services require no infrastructure and therefore may be deployed anywhere at all, as long as they have a clear line of sight with the satellite that they are communicating with. They are cost-effective and can enable ISPs to extend their reach far beyond urban areas to increase their subscriber base and to take precious connectivity to outlying areas that can then benefit from a wide range of communications services including Internet browsing, VoIP, videoconferencing and access to vital services and information.

Satellite can also extend cellular services well beyond urban areas without the need to construct expensive cell towers. BusinessCom allows cellular backhaul services and even a rural telephony solution that can enable outlying communities to access GSM services no matter where they are – that is voice, data and video connectivity – at an affordable price. Mobile Network Operators can use BusinessCom’s cellular backhaul solution to expand their reach and transport voice and data traffic cost-effectively and in a scalable way.

BusinessCom’s expert technical staff are on hand to help to design and develop the best solution possible for a wide range of customers across Panama.

With a population of over 51 million, South Korea is located in the southern part of the Korean Peninsula. The country is home to dramatic, mountainous landscapes, coastal plains, rolling hills and valleys. The country has gone through a great transformation, to become a technological powerhouse and a global provider of electronics and other high technology products and also vessels such as cruise ships.

South Koreans have a very urban-based lifestyle and the country is very technologically advanced with an educated and skilled workforce. The country is the world’s largest spender on R&D and is renowned as an innovator.

As a technological nation, one would expect to see high levels of smartphone adoption and networks that can accommodate this usage. South Korea boasts the highest smartphone ownership in the world and there is excellent 4G LTE coverage across the country. South Korea also has the world’s fastest Internet speed overall, and both mobile and fixed line infrastructure delivers high speeds. The country is also making its move towards 5G and network tests are currently being carried out in areas of Seoul.

South Korea is very well connected, especially in urban areas, where the majority of the population live, but there are still areas of population that are not yet connected to the Internet and this is something that can be addressed using satellite-based solutions. The South Korean government has placed great emphasis on the use of broadband for essential services such as e-government, e-health and e-learning and has used this to good effect. To take these services to those who do not currently have access in more remote locations across the country, satellite provides an ideal, cost-effective solution. BusinessCom is a leading provider of VSAT broadband services for areas that are currently not connected by terrestrial connectivity means. VSAT terminals are easy to deploy even in mountainous and inhospitable areas where it is impossible to put down terrestrial networks. They allow the full range of IP services, enabling communities to enjoy the benefits that broadband brings to urban areas.

For mobile broadband, BusinessCom can provide connectivity for rural mobile networks where Mobile Network Operators can struggle to access, bringing more ubiquitous connectivity in remote regions of South Korea. Delivery of 2G, 3G and 4G services is made easy and the infrastructure is completely independent of local infrastructure.

With the deployment of 5G on the cards in South Korea, satellite will also have an important role to play in terms of providing coverage in areas that are more difficult to reach.

Though South Korea is a very well connected and technologically advanced country, there is still some requirement for the delivery of services in the more hard to reach areas. Satellite-based solutions from BusinessCom provide easy, scalable and cost-effective access to the broadband connectivity that is so important to our modern world. BusinessCom can provide full assistance at every step to tailor a network that suits your requirements whether you are a business, governmental organisation or community.
