Gilat Satcom announces non-stop coast-to-coast fibre redundancy in Africa

Gilat Satcom has revealed a raft of new fibre routes in coastal and landlocked Africa. These routes are already providing companies with fast and reliable broadband connectivity at a highly competitive price with coast-to-coast redundancy guaranteed.

The firm is amongst the first companies in Africa to offer both East to West coast and international connectivity. Its MPLS network connects to both the WACS and EASSy undersea cables via fibre local loops across Tanzania, Zambia, Malawi, Namibia and Mozambique. In addition, Gilat Satcom’s pan-Africa satellite footprint allows its MPLS network to reach the most remote areas of the continent. 

The company is also considering the establishment of data centres across Africa aimed at oil and gas companies, financial institutions and other large firms which need high security and low latency levels.

Mr. Eran Yoran, Marketing Director of Gilat Satcom, said: “There is still a huge gap between the growing demands for broadband in Africa and the ability of the industry to provide a high-quality service. In particular, we see a great need in Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Somalia, Tanzania and Zambia.
