iSAT Africa, a data, video and internet service provider and Azercosmos, a satellite operator in the South Caucasus have inked a deal to provide satellite telecoms services in Africa.
iSAT Africa will provide MPLS, SDWan, media solutions and OTT using terrestrial and satellite technologies. According to the deal with Azercosmos, iSAT Africa will cover the growing demand for telecommunications in different parts of Africa that can’t be served using terrestrial, via the resources of the Azerspace-2 satellite.
iSAT Africa will use the capacity of the Azerspace-2 satellite to offer various satellite solutions, in addition to data and video services provided to 90 percent of the African region.
The Chief Commercial Officer of Azercosmos, Mark Guthrie, stated, “This cooperation will allow us to use the capabilities of the Azerspace-2 satellite even in the most remote areas of Africa.”
On the other hand, Stanley Ayittah, Head of Business Development of iSAT Africa, said, “Our partnership status with Azercosmos guarantees successful implementation of our projects on satellite services, even during the ongoing pandemic. We will be able to provide fast and efficient services to our customers in Africa and also from Africa.”
