KA-Band, 31° E

Hylas 2 – Beam 25

The HYLAS 2 satellite carries 24 active Ka-band user beams and six gateway beams. The Ka-band spot beams are providing two-way communications services to facilitate high-speed delivery of data to end-user applications such as corporate networking, broadband Internet access, business continuity services and video distribution. Using the HYLAS 2 spacecraft, NYNEX will provide its data and video services to Eastern and Southern Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. In addition, the spacecraft is equipped with a steerable spot beam, also operating at Ka-band, which will be able to provide coverage anywhere on Earth that is visible to the satellite.
