Satcoms support for elections in Niger

Satcoms support for elections in Niger

Speedcast Government, which provides mission-critical communications for military, government, non-governmental and intergovernmental organizations, is supporting a UN agency and an independent national electoral committee in Niger in their mission to ensure that no electoral fraud takes place.

In preparation for the upcoming national elections, Speedcast Government has been asked to provide satellite internet services, equipment, life-cycle operation, installation, maintenance and logistics support for eight regional electoral sites. The project is divided into two phases and expected to be completed before legislative and presidential elections take place in 2020-2021.

Speedcast Government’s fully managed communication solutions are enabled by multi-access technology and a multi-band, multi-orbit network of 80+ satellites and a global ground support network which provides a local point of presence in over 40 countries. Its managed satcom services are complemented by advanced wireless capabilities, systems integration services, and high-touch professional services for land and airborne ISR / mobility applications. 

And if the name seems familiar, that may be because Speedcast Government is part of the largest remote communications provider in the world. In fact only last week, Speedcast International announced that it had been awarded a 12-month contract with a mobile operator in Mexico, where its fully managed, end-to-end cellular backhaul solution will help the mobile operator expand its network.
