New ISP launches VSAT network in Afghanistan

Spanning 20 provinces, Afghanistan’s largest VSAT deployment has been implemented by the Central Asia Development Group (CADG) in partnership with broad-spectrum tech firm Insyndia. The network will be managed by the newly-created Insyndia.NET, Afghanistan’s newest Internet service provider, and will provide stable, reliable Internet to NGOs, governments, and inter-governmental organisations.

“When operating in a forward capacity, the Internet is the lifeline to critical business communications. We continue to deliver solid solutions that solve real problems for our customers. We continue to focus on solutions that allow CADG to better perform their mission on the ground - it’s about using technology to solve challenging global business problems,” said Kevin Casey, CEO of Insyndia Corporation.

The deployment will provide connectivity to even the most remote project sites. After having operated in Afghanistan for over 12 years, CADG used all available VSAT providers but experienced issues with service reliability and technical performance. The lack of support, reliability, and connectivity coupled with valid security concerns about sending proprietary data over local national networks called for a new solution.

“In Afghanistan, the success or failure of a project often comes down to communications,” said Matthew Goldthwaite, CCO/CIO of CADG.

The new ISP has conducted solid field testing to ensure quality, and its coverage is bolstered by the inherent advantages of a new, unsaturated network. Insyndia.NET also offers other technical benefits, such as advanced proxy architecture, Tier 1 to Intelsat, Tier 1 Datacenter and iDirect Evolution Modems.
