Ku &C Band uplink
K-NET has VSAT Teleports located in Accra, with systems on both Ku-Band and C-Band platforms. The Teleports are connected to an iDirect 5IF VSAT Hub located at our McCarthy Hill Tech Centre. The Ku-band and the C-Band covers the entire West African Region, allowing us to provide services to customers in all of these regions. The VSAT Hub can offer very high data throughput to individual VSAT remote sites located within the satellite footprints. The satellite footprints has coverage over the entire West African sub-region, therefore our VSAT Hub has the capability to provide network connectivity to any location within the sub-region. Currently we have VSAT clients in Ghana and Nigeria, with plans to extend services to Liberia and Sierra Leone.

IP Trunking is a technology solution that lets your business connect to the Internet using a common data connection, which is then used by the organization’s different services, such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephony, e-mail and Web browsing. The service offers several benefits to an organization that has multiple phone lines and a lot of data communication. For one, there’s cost; with phone and data communications on the same network, maintenance expenses are reduced, as is the number of workers needed to run the network. And, because both data and phone services are offered by K-NET, customers stand a good chance of making high return on investment.Benefits of IP Trunking
There are many benefits to adopting K-NET’s IP Trunking to use for your company’s or institution’s multiple phone lines. Are you an organization that is constantly working online, communicate frequently with your partners or branch offices? Then adopting K-NET IP Trunking is a logical step to take.
The main reason is that it combines your Internet (data) network and your phone network as unified system. That could potentially save your company hundreds of dollars a month on maintenance fees because the phone and Internet system are now the same system. It could also save you money on employment costs (so long as your existing IT expert knows how to use an IP Trunking system). Cheaper communications is one of the best things K-NET IP Trunking has going for you.
One of the main reasons VoIP has taken off is because of its flat-fee pricing structure. Because VoIP and IP Trunking convert voices to data, you’re not technically using the phone lines to make long distance calls — you’re just transmitting data. Another bonus is that because it’s a system based on remote data transfer anyway, you can even have users at multiple locations use the same trunk. You don’t have to pay for multiple IP Trunking servers as long as you use K-NET IP Trunking service.
But what if you don’t think IP Trunking is established enough to use for your primary communication needs? Well, it’s always a good idea to have a backup. IP Trunking is easy enough to use, and with the equipment you already have around in the office (phones, computers), it can be used to provide network redundancy. If landlines ever go down, but the Internet is still up, it can help you out. Because it’s not phone-based in a DSL, T1 or cable setup, you can simply enable VoIP-based calling, resuming communications productivity immediately.
K-NET IP Trunking simplifies complexity. With a central PSTN breakout, there are no separate PSTN lines at each site; just a single network to manage. You can manage your IP and TDM estate centrally, including your dial plan. Additionally, K-NET IP Trunk also integrates seamlessly with your existing VPNs.
K-NET IP Trunking helps you to achieve more. IP Trunk moves you towards true convergence, combining voice onto existing data links. It encourages ‘on-net’ short dial calls and supports the features you find most useful, such as call hold, transfer and forwarding, and conferencing.
