SatADSL, a satellite service provider based in Belgium, will launch its products aimed at African enterprises tomorrow (Tuesday).
The services, which are supported by the ARTES 3-4 Satcom Application co-funded by the European Space Agency (ESA), are aimed at corporate offices, bank agencies, mining sites and other “medium-size exploitations in Sub-Saharan Africa”.
The satellite services will provide communications and internet connectivity where terrestrial services are either not available or unreliable.
“Companies in Sub-Saharan Africa are often confronted to limited coverage and reliability of terrestrial telecommunications means,” Fulvo Sansone, SatADSL chief technology officer (CTO) said.
“Especially outside of urban and coastal areas where the population is less dense, telecommunication links may not be as reliable as needed by professional users.”
SatADSL are launching the internet access and voice over internet protocol (VoIP) services across Sub-Saharan Africa in collaboration with its partners and will complement its existing network of 1,000 terminals across the continent already offering low-cost networking solutions.
