Ku-band capacity

Kukabandspectrumheaders

Ku-band provides high bandwidth, more targeted coverage for fixed and broadcast services, allowing for a range of satellite applications. Ku-band was designed for satellite communications exclusively, eliminating competition and signal interference from other communications systems. Ku-band enables high-speed uplinks and downlinks and utilises smaller end-user antennas.

Advantages of Jabiru's Ku-band

  • Avoids signal interference from other communications systems
  • Versatile spectrum with increased reliability
  • Small antennas for end-users
  • Targets enterprise and government markets
  • Dedicated support with high quality, adaptable and secure connectivity
  • High intensity "hot zones" to support large bandwidth applications

Ku-band for focused bandwidth
C-band was the primary spectrum for satellite communication use, when the industry first commenced, requiring large antennas and providing communications across large areas. The use of this spectrum was a very important stepping stone for the industry and as C-band became a commercial success, the spectrum was absorbed and today, we see C-band under tremendous pressure with encroachment from terrestrial services. About 20 years ago, the satellite industry moved into Ku-band enabling smaller antennas to be used, bringing down the cost of network deployment. Ideal for deploying services to multiple users, Ku-band enables focused bandwidth and high-quality communications across larger geographical locations.
