Since being incorporated in 2007, YAHSAT has designed the region’s first multi-purpose satellite system, based on extensive interaction with their customers. Their first satellite Y1A is currently being built and will be launched in the first quarter of 2011. It will be followed by the launch of Y1B in the second half of 2011.
“Growing Ethernet bandwidth requirements are leading clients like YAHSAT to deploy Cat6a 10GBase-T solutions and consolidate servers in an effort to maximize data center performance” said Ziad Sultan, Division Manager, Intelligent Cabling Systems at Alpha Data. He added “Alpha Data’s main goal was providing YAHSAT with reliable standards-based connectivity solutions to ensure consistent performance for their computing applications.”
Alpha Data also provided security surveillance and access control systems onsite and a full redundancy unit to cover any potential network down-time. “Think of full redundancy as no discernable interruption of service, utilizing a duplicate to prevent failure of an entire system. If mission-critical problems caused by hardware or software failures do occur, this failover solution, coupled with other methods, can enable a security environment never to go down, at least from YAHSAT's perspective” says Hassan Zuhdi, Sales Executive- ELV Multimedia and Security at Alpha Data.
