Satellite solution provider InterSat and ABS, a global satellite operator, announced the launch of iDirect platforms on ABS-3A C-band and Ku-band beams. These platforms will provide broadband internet across sub-Sahara and South Africa, as well as serving French-speaking African countries.
The partnership can now offer software virtual network operator (SVNO) access to resellers in Africa to distribute and manage internet services on both C and Ku-band. Resellers can control their VSAT network and manage services to their clients without the need for investment in hardware. InterSat will operate the services from its new teleport in Nairobi using ABS-3A’s pan-Africa beams.
“The requirement for satellite capacity in the broadband market in Africa continues to grow,” said Hanif Kassam, CEO of InterSat. “At InterSat, we are now ready to start a new chapter towards accelerated growth and our renewed collaboration with ABS marks that new beginning.”
