Introduction to SpaceStream SMART

Our BCX Satellite Services portfolio includes a satellite-based product called SpaceStream SMART, which offers satellite broadband services, including the internet, and data and voice/fax communications, to areas and rural locations with unreliable or even no terrestrial infrastructure, or areas that have been experiencing cable theft. Our partners include small, medium-sized, and larger public sector players, as well as companies from the retail, health and education industries. You can choose between seven service packages that offer a range of connectivity speeds.

What is SpaceStream SMART?

BCX creates SpaceStream SMART using the Global Virtual Network Operator (GVNO) Ka-band platform, which is powered by the internationally recognised satellite operator Avanti. We offer solutions that overcome the limitations of obsolete or otherwise unsustainable technologies, and can also help you implement temporary access. The product portfolio includes satellite access offering voice and internet, soft cap internet service provision, and tariff pricing.

How Will SpaceStream SMART Benefit My Business?

Reliability And Cost Efficiencies /Icon

  • Rely on an average availability in excess of 100% due to the use of the latest generation Ka-band technology and smaller dishes

  • Leverage the efficiencies of operating on the Ka-band, which means terminals are cheaper to buy and cost less to install and maintain

Choice Through Options

  • Select from a range of seven service packages offering up to 15Mbps high speed download, and 2.5Mbps upload speeds
  • Opt for “volume based billing” (VBB), which allows you to automatically use additional GB data allowances in 1GB increments – these are billed in arrears


  • All the satellite terminals are managed from the BCX central hub, which heightens security levels
  • Rapid deployment is possible even in cases where no network footprint is available
