Kacific to migrate to AWS to delivery broadband to rural regions

Come 2022, Kacific Broadband Satellites will be migrating its IT infrastructure and critical business applications to Amazon Web Services (AWS) to scale up delivery of its broadband internet to rural regions of Southeast Asia and the Pacific.

The move is part of its strategy to adopt a cloud-first approach to provide accessible, high-quality, low-cost broadband internet connectivity for subscribers in its rapidly expanding network.

“Kacific is connecting nations across the Asia Pacific so that people in rural and even the most remote areas have the same access to information and services as the urban population,” said Christian Patouraux, Chief Executive Officer of Kacific.

“Internet connectivity is fundamental to improving the lives of people globally. By leveraging AWS technologies, Kacific has scaled its services securely to meet customer demand for internet connectivity, bringing the people of our region together,” said Peter Moore, Regional Managing Director of Public Sector, Asia Pacific and Japan at AWS.

Kacific has responded to COVID-19 challenges by rapidly introducing new products and services, such as GigWiFi and Community WiFi to deliver appropriate and affordable bandwidth plans to more than 1,000 healthcare facilities and education premises to support communities affected by the pandemic.

By using AWS, Kacific is able to ensure its operations support systems and business support systems are able to deliver services to customers quickly and securely.
