Global IP connectivity company SkyVision has launched a comprehensive secure voice and data network in Ivory Coast for the improvement of microfinance.
The project allows the installation of 97 branches of the National Union of Savings and Credit Cooperatives (UNACOOPEC)’s satellite private network.
The largest financial institution in Ivory Coast, UNACOOPEC specializes in microfinance, banking and insurance, which can benefit from a high security communications network.
Multiple new installations have been done in rural areas which lack basic communication facilities.
SkyVision’s African project has enabled the use of WAN sites, information sharing between branches and the head office through voice and data applications.
Doron Ben Sira, chief executive officer of SkyVision, said: “SkyVision truly values UNACOOPEC-CI’s business, professionalism and commitment and is pleased to be able to meet their precise needs.”
Savane Issaka, general manager of UNACOOPEC-CI, said: “As a widely-dispersed banking institution in Côte d’Ivoire, UNACOOPEC-CI required an experienced and reliable vendor that could seamlessly deploy an experienced and reliable vendor that could seamlessly deploy and manage a satellite private network that would meet our specific needs.”
He continued, saying he was impressed that the speed exceeded the team’s expectations.
