Gulfsat Madagascar choisit O3b Networks pour fournir une connexion haut débit abordable à travers Madagascar

O3b Networks a annoncé aujourd'hui que le fournisseur de services de télécommunications de premier plan, Gulfsat Madagascar, a signé un contrat de capacité à long terme pour fournir des services de connexion et de téléphonie satellite haut débit à travers la nation insulaire de Madagascar.

S'appuyant sur les avantages concurrentiels uniques de la flotte satellite en orbite terrestre moyenne d'O3b, Gulfsat Madagascar peut offrir aux résidents et aux entreprises sur la quatrième île la plus grande au monde un nouveau niveau de solutions de connexion haut débit avec la vitesse de la fibre et la portée et la fiabilité de la technologie satellite. La connectivité fournie par O3b permet aux communautés de bénéficier de latences d'une faiblesse inégalée (moins de 150 millisecondes), d'une largeur de bande illimitée et abordable et d'économies opérationnelles sans pareil.

L'île de Madagascar, situé au large de la côte sud-est de l'Afrique, est desservie par des câbles sous-marins à fibre optique, mais Gulfsat voit des avantages considérables dans l'accessibilité économique et la résilience des solutions satellite de bande Ka d'O3b.

« En collaboration avec O3b Networks, Gulfsat est bien positionnée pour fournir une vaste gamme de services de connexion et de transmissions vocales et de données haut débit avec la vitesse et la rentabilité de la fibre et la haute disponibilité et la résilience de la technologie satellite », a déclaré Damien de Lamberterie, Directeur général de Gulfsat Madagascar. « Gulfsat tirera profit de cette combinaison gagnante à travers Madagascar, où les consommateurs et les entreprises attendent tous une solution haut débit abordable à latence faible depuis des années ».

« Gulfsat est une véritable innovatrice qui offre déjà des services à triple flux à Madagascar sous le nom de marque Blueline. O3b est fière de permettre à ce fournisseur de télécommunications de premier plan en Afrique de concrétiser son objectif consistant à réaliser le plein potentiel de la région à travers une connexion haut débit abordable », a expliqué Omar Trujillo, O3b Networks, Vice-président pour l'Afrique et l'Amérique latine. « L'alliance entre O3b et Gulfsat élimine les restrictions techniques et les coûts élevés qui frustrent les fournisseurs d'accès Internet à travers l'Afrique depuis des années. Une fois de plus, Gulfsat fait œuvre de pionnière en se concentrant sur l'offre d'une meilleure expérience Internet accessible à tous ».
