It will provide high-data rate internet services for public and private users in the Middle East, Africa and Southwest Asia above the limitations of existing terrestrial and satellite systems.
Y1B commercial communication payload uses Ka-band multi spot-beam technology, achieving cost-effective bandwidth supply through 61 narrow spot beams.
