The development of the teleport with native gateway infrastructure that can host YanaSat has began on the Collectivité Territoriale de Guyane (CTG) compound in Suzini, Cayenne. The YanaSat service is already working over the SES-17 satellite tv for pc and might be accomplished with full MEO satellite tv for pc providers delivered through SES’ next-generation O3b mPOWER communications system by mid-2024, in the end offering almost 3.5 Gbps of capability.

Developed with assist from the European Union to provide sponsored satellite tv for pc connectivity at an reasonably priced value, Marlink employs cutting-edge applied sciences to provide high-speed internet entry to customers and to speed up the deployment of cellular telecom networks.
Internet Service Providers can use YanaSat to supply internet entry subscriptions whereas cellular telecom operators can capitalize on the capabilities of YanaSat to provide mobile backhaul for LTE 4G/5G providers, permitting these operators to supply an optimised cellular service throughout French Guiana. By offering excessive pace internet entry at an reasonably priced value throughout the territory, YanaSat will play a key position in accelerating digital inclusion programmes in French Guiana.
