South Africa’s Intelsat and MSTelcom have collaborated to give the people of Angola high quality, reliable and cost-efficient broadband service to consumers and corporations operating in the oil and gas and banking sectors within Angola.
In this agreement, Intelsat will deliver a fully managed broadband service that provides Internet access into and out of Angola. The network will leverage C- band capacity on Intelsat 14 at 315º East and on Intelsat 22 at 72º East, as well as the company’s IntelsatOne terrestrial network.
As for MSTelcom, it will provide point-to-point Internet broadband service, and the design of the Intelsat network will enable the transition to a point-to-multipoint service that allows MSTelcom to share bandwidth among multiple sites to best serve customer needs.
Intelsat’s satellite solutions will facilitate network services such as the termination of IP traffic and connectivity between remote sites and corporate headquarters.
“Intelsat has been an important partner for MSTelcom in providing communications throughout Angola,” said Oldemiro Diogo Cundo Napoleão, Head of Marketing for MSTelcom.
“Intelsat’s satellite capacity combined with its technical support helps ensure that our employees continue to provide high quality, reliable and responsive services to our customers. We renewed our agreement with Intelsat as we believe that they are the best satellite operator to support our goal of satisfying the growing broadband demands of the Angolan business sector and the country as a whole.”
Grant Marais, Intelsat’s Regional Vice President, Africa Sales said: “We look forward to providing MSTelecom with a broadband network that incorporates our satellite and terrestrial solutions, as well as operational support that will help MSTelcom deliver and expand both its geographic reach and the services provided to corporate enterprises and communities within Angola.”
