Satellite partners link up on cloud-based service platform

Satellite partners link up on cloud-based service platform

Global Telesat, provider of telecoms services to rural and remote locations, has partnered with satellite operator RascomStar and VSAT services provider SatADSL to provide affordable satellite broadband connectivity across Africa.

Under the agreement, Global Telesat will manage the services from its Sateleport facility in Spain and will connect its iDirect Evolution hub to SatADSL's cloud-based service delivery platform. RascomStar will supply the capacity through its RQ1R satellite located at 2.9° East which covers the entire African continent in C-and Ku-band connectivity.

"Our mission at RascomStar is to develop remote and rural areas across Africa and we're delighted that our partnership with SatADSL and Global Telesat will enable us to do just that," said RascomStar's CEO Sherif Azzabi.

A critical component of the partnership is the elimination of the need for investment in any physical infrastructure as Global Telesat's iDirect Evolution hub will be connected to SatADSL's cloud-based service delivery platform to provide services without investing in any physical infrastructure.

Laure Gathy, New Business Development Manager at Global Telesat said the company is committed to providing reliable connectivity anywhere at any time, even in the most challenging locations.

Global Telesat also revealed it is the latest service provider to connect to SatADSL's C-SDP, which is now being used by 76 Africa-based partners.

"SatADSL's solutions are a perfect fit for our customers who cannot rely on terrestrial infrastructure to connect and the C-SDP means we can offer services quickly and very cost-effectively," said Gathy.

Caroline De Vos, Founder and Chief Operations Officer at SatADSL, added that the partnership would enhance communications for individuals and enterprises across Africa.

"Pooling our combined expertise in the satellite communications industry has enabled us to provide a unique offering to previously underserved areas at a time when connectivity has never been more crucial," De Vos said.
