Hughes Network Systems, the global leader in broadband satellite networks and services, has announced three African telecom companies have selected the Hughes JUPITER System to power delivery of satellite broadband services for their customers.
Botswana Telecommunications Corporation, Satcom Networks Africa Limited (SatCoNet) and a leading East African telecommunications company each chose the system based on its high performance, operational efficiency and better customer experience.
“Hughes is committed to the growth of our operations in Africa and we have tripled our dedicated sales and engineering support across the continent to serve growing broadband demand,” said Dharmendra Singh, Regional Director, International at Hughes.
“Our JUPITER System enables service providers to improve their offerings and deliver a wide range of applications supporting economic and social development across Africa – helping close the digital divide, which is our global mission.”
Botswana Telecommunications Corporation is using the JUPITER System to expand its high-speed business broadband service. The first phase of deployment includes hundreds of remote terminals connecting businesses and homes.
SatCoNet, the only native VSAT operator in Tanzania, also chose the JUPITER System to improve its service offering for the market with improved performance, better throughput and a better experience for their customers.
One of the largest telecommunications companies in East Africa will implement the JUPITER System for video and broadband service in schools. The technology refresh begins with 1,000 sites, improving high-speed satellite performance and evolving their solution to meet growing demand. – Intelligent CIO
