Japan Launches Internet Satellite Communications

TOKYO-MI: Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency / JAXA), launched a rocket into outer space, carrying the satellite Kizuna was the most advanced experimental project to create a superfast internet communication network system.

The launch of domestically built rocket named H-2A was a success from the Japanese space launch center in the province of Kagoshima, after being delayed from the previous schedule on February 15 last, according to Kyodo reported in Tokyo on Saturday.

Kizuna Japanese design experts as an effort to bring wireless Internet communication system (wireless) superfast capable of reaching the Asia-Pacific region. It was also in response to the difficulty of the Internet network infrastructure on the mainland.

Geographical conditions of Japan is mountainous and rocky indeed quite difficult for the implementation of Internet networking infrastructure across the country that is being accelerated by the Japanese.

Japan eventually chose to accelerate the development of Internet network via a satellite system that does not use wires and the options as well as an effort to anticipate if a permanent communication system suffered severe interference.The ability to transfer data through Kizuna pretty awesome, which is equal to 1.2 gigabits per second. One gigabit equals one billion bits per second. With that capability, Japan is also able to accelerate technology research development broadcastinghigh-definition televisions, or often called HD-TV.Internet data transfer speeds for the Japanese public relatively quickly by using a fiber optic network data transfer speed of at least 100 megabits per second (Mbps).

The manufacturer claimed that the Kizuna satellite communication system is the fastest in the world today. Another benefit of super-fast data transfer capacity that is capable of developing long-distance medical consultation services.

The satellite is the result of collaboration between JAXA and the National Institute of Information and Communication Technology. The total cost spent on the project to reach 52 billion yen, from research, to launch the operation.
