A new partnership between professional VSAT services provider SatADSL, iSAT Africa, and APT Satellite will see affordable broadband via satellite offered across Africa.
Under the agreement, SatADSL will provide its Cloud-based Service Delivery Platform (C-SDP), enabling iSAT to offer a suite of new services including voucher services, VNOFlex and congestion-based services.
“We are very excited to be part of this partnership with SatADSL and iSAT to deliver cost-effective broadband services to customers in Africa,” said Thomas Antony, APT Satellite’s Director of Sales for the region. “The APSTAR-7 Ku Africa beam provides an excellent platform for Satcom services across Africa, providing extensive coverage and high performance.”
APT Satellite will provide capacity via its APSTAR-7 satellite located at 76.5 East, covering Asia, Australia, The Middle East, Europe and Africa with C-band transponders and China, the Middle East and Africa with Ku-band transponders.
SatADSL’s C-SDP is a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution which enables operators to deliver a full range of satellite-based connectivity services without investing in physical infrastructure. SatADSL expects to have worldwide coverage by the end of the year, further expanding the reach of its C-SDP.
iSAT is the latest service provider to connect to the platform, which is now being used by 77 Africa-based partners.
