American Samoa Telecommunications Authority (ASTCA) Seleciona a O3b Networks para Fornecer Banda Larga por Satélite de Baixa Latência e Alta Capacidade a partir Deste Ano.

A American Samoa Telecommunications Authority (ASTCA) e a O3b Networks assinaram acordos para que a O3b Networks forneça até 1.2Gbps de conectividade de banda larga futura para Internet e outros serviços para a Samoa Americana a partir de 2013.

A O3b Networks está lançando uma constelação de satélites na órbita média da terra que oferece a velocidade de fibra e alcance de satélite para as nações insulares do Pacífico. Como os satélites O3b estão situados em órbita a apenas 8062 km ao longo do planeta, eles estão quatro vezes mais perto do que os satélites geoestacionários que atenderam à Samoa Americana no passado. Esta proximidade reduz significativamente o atraso de ida e volta para chamadas de voz e a navegação na internet. A constelação O3b estará pronta para o serviço no terceiro trimestre deste ano.

Hoje, o território é atendido por um único cabo submarino de fibra óptica. O desempenho da ligação via satélite O3b será protegido por um conjunto de antenas duplas com 7,3 metros e tecnologia de ponta no Teleporto ASTCA Ili'ili. O aumento da capacidade permitirá que a ASTCA e outros provedores de serviços ofereçam mais serviços baseados em banda larga para os habitantes da Samoa Americana.

Aleki Sene, Diretor Executivo Sênior da ASTCA, disse: "Este acordo marca uma melhoria significativa na acessibilidade de banda larga na Samoa Americana. O serviço O3b diversifica a nossa rota com muita capacidade de baixa latência. A ASTCA continuará a atender nossos clientes através de nossos compromissos de fibra óptica submarino no cabo da ASH. No entanto, no primeiro dia em que a constelação da O3b estiver operacional, a ASTCA dobrará a capacidade de banda larga disponível para os residentes no território. A nova capacidade melhorará as velocidades de rede, a confiabilidade da rede e proporcionará redundância, caso o sistema submarino de fibra óptica falhe."

Uma das razões para a falta de penetração da banda larga na Samoa Americana, que apresentou uma penetração da Internet de 4.5% em uma pesquisa realizada, foi a natureza cara do backhaul. Ambas as soluções de fibra ótica submarina e de satélite tradicional tiveram seus preços estabelecidos bem fora do viável para a economia local. O acordo entre a ASTCA e a O3b muda o cenário da banda larga de forma significativa, ao levar as capacidades de fibra óptica a preços e condições que são acessíveis e economicamente viáveis para os provedores de serviços das ilhas. A ASTCA pode estender os benefícios da capacidade 03b para atender toda a Samoa.

John Finney, Diretor Comercial da O3b Networks, declarou: "Estamos entusiasmados por fazer parte do plano da ASTCA para fornecer capacidade de banda larga com tecnologia de ponta acessível para todos os cidadãos, visitantes e empresas na Samoa Americana. A O3b espera que 2013 marque o início de uma parceria longa e próspera com a ASTCA".
