For decades, the strong correlation between Economic Development and Information/Telecommunications (IT) technologies has been well understood. The challenge, especially for developing countries has been, until recently, the high capital investments required to build a sound IT infrastructure.

The dawn of the 21st Century has witnessed the emergence of a class of powerful, efficient and low-cost technologies in the areas of Satellite Communications, Wireless Communications and the Internet. MAECI is taking advantage of these technology trends to deliver cost-effective Broadband services to its Government and Private-Sector clients Worldwide. Our deliverables in this area include:

  • Turnkey Network Design and Engineering: We assist Government and Private sector clients in the development of candidate VSAT and Wireless network-Architectures to meet their key objectives. We then follow with parametric and economic tradeoffs as well as sensitivity analyses to recommend a viable design that offers Best-Value solutions. Specific tasks include: Network Connectivity configuration; Ground Segment performance parameters analysis; Space Segment parameters analysis; Network coverage, capacity and throughput analysis; link budget analysis, trade-offs and optimization; Network implementation and commissioning.
