Leading satellite services provider Spidersat Communications is planning to launch a high performance network for Africa to connect remote areas.
Bridging the gap of multi-megabit satellite connectivity to support unified communications, the network will improve ITC Global’s African operations.
The company already hosts satellite coverage, has a presence in more than 20 countries, as well as established business in Tanzania, Ghana, Nigeria and Angola.
In its final stages, the project will provide new satellite modem technology with an approximate speed of 60Mbps to 100Mbps.
ITC Global sees the expansion as a step in attaining its goal to provide locally-established communication solutions with worldwide accessibility.
Working with partners Intelsat and iDirect, the latest Evolution satellite modem by iDirect is employed.
Mike Hennessey, managing director of Spidersat, said: “I am proud to offer our customer the benefits of this new network in Africa,” Technology Banker reported.
Intelsat’s collaboration with ITC Global enables the sharing of 25 spacecraft satellites and connectivity through the IntelsatOne terrestrial network, leveraging African infrastructure.
Rob Kilroy, regional vice president of sales at iDirect Technologies, said: “ITC Global is continuing to establish itself as a technology leader through the deployment of this network.”
