Kazakhstan is the world’s largest landlocked country. Bordered by China, Russia, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and the Caspian Sea, it is home to a variety of different geographies including steppes, mountains, canyons, deltas and hills. Kazakhstan has a population of over 18 million, but the population density is low due to the sheer size of the country itself. The Kazakh economy is strong with a heavy focus on oil and gas and also its rich natural resources. However, other important exports include wheat, textiles, livestock and uranium.
The Kazakh telecommunications infrastructure is dominated by mobile networks. The fixed broadband availability is in decline due to the popularity of mobile and this is very much the same for broadband networks. Again, these are dominated by mobile operators, of which there are three in Kazakhstan. 4G is available in the cities across the country and the mobile landscape is very competitive. That said, the country has embarked on an important project called Digital Kazakhstan to improve broadband access. The main goal of the initiative is to improve the competitiveness of the Kazakh economy the development of its digital ecosystem through the creation of a digital ‘Silk Road’; the development of digital skills and competencies and the introduction of ‘proactive digital government’ which will give better public access to mobile government systems.
Vast, Sparsely Populated Territory
Given the size of Kazakhstan, the government can benefit greatly from the use of VSAT-based satellite systems to enable the expansion of broadband networks to rural, remote regions of the country. Without the addition of satellite to the portfolio of communications technologies utilised, it will simply become too cost prohibitive to take terrestrial technologies to these areas. Satellite not only simplifies the extension of cellular and broadband networks, it actually makes it more cost-effective and gives fast Return on Investment.
The BusinessCom Networks team are experts in the design and implementation of networks that allow broadband Internet access and connectivity to international IP backbones. Location is not an issue as the network can be connected at all times no matter where it is required. This is achieved through VSAT technology which requires no prior infrastructure, just a terminal and a clear line of sight to the satellite. Through this technology, it becomes possible to extend cellular networks, connect enterprises, hospitals, clinics, schools and remote communities to voice and data networks. BusinessCom can also help you to effectively manage available bandwidth which is a valuable commodity.
For businesses, cellular network operators, government, ISPs and individuals, BusinessCom can facilitate much-needed connectivity solutions across Kazakhstan and with experienced technicians located in-country, we can provide installation as well as complete support throughout the life of the network.
BusinessCom was one of the pioneers on the introduction of TDMA technology to the Eastern hemisphere and this is now the benchmark for reliable Internet access services. We pride ourselves on finding the right technology solution for the customer to make sure that it suits their requirements and their budget, and we can fully manage the entire network to give true peace of mind. We look forward to enabling Kazakhstan to fully realise the benefits of the digital economy.
