Digital infrastructure provider Tata Communications on Thursday said it has entered into an agreement with Kacific Broadband Satellites Group (Kacific) for providing global internet and cyber security services. “Kacific has selected Tata Communications…to provide terrestrial connectivity services as it readies for the launch of its first satellite, Kacific1,” Tata Communications said in a regulatory filing.

Kacific chose to enter into this arrangement with Tata Communications because of the scale of the company’s global network and its security expertise, Kacific CEO Christian Patouraux said in a statement. “Our high-speed broadband will reach people living across both the most remote rural locations and the most densely populated urban centres in the Asia Pacific region,” Patouraux said.

Tata Communications will provide global internet and cyber security services for Kacific’s Ka-band satellite network. Kacific1 is a High Throughput Satellite (HTS) that will use 56 high-power Ka-band beams to deliver affordable, high-speed broadband to telecommunications companies, internet service providers and governments in South East Asia and the Pacific.
