CWS Seychelles brings in SkyVision for VSAT & IP Trunking

SkyVision Global Networks is providing managed IP Trunking and Private Network solutions to Cable & Wireless Seychelles (CWS).

The project consists of providing IP Trunking to the main island of Seychelles (Mahe), and a private VSAT network for its surrounding islands.

Established in 1893, Cable & Wireless Seychelles (CWS) is the leading telecommunications company in Seychelles, where over 95% of local businesses make up the company’s broad customer base. In an effort to provide viable communications between the main island and 12 neighbouring, smaller islands, CWS required a reliable and efficient network solution that would include fibre restoration for back-up, and Internet service with additional back up for their key customers.

To meet the immediate need, SkyVision is deploying its IP Trunking service based on the latest technology developments of DVB-S2X, enabling a cost-effective yet Telco-grade solution. In addition, SkyVision has installed and deployed its proprietary Private Network solution for a government project, in close cooperation with Seychelles’ Cable & Wireless office, the Islands Development Company (IDC).

Connection from the main island to smaller remote islands was successfully implemented using the Romantis VSAT platform. This unique solution modernises the communication between main and remote islands. SkyVision’s 24/7 Network Operations Centre (NOC) supervises the services, enabling CWS to efficiently manage their network and focus on their core objectives and reach operational efficiencies.  

“We see an increase in the need for reliable and cost-effective satellite communications, even in countries where submarine cables have been existent for several years now. As last mile connectivity remains a necessity, SkyVision intends to continue expanding its reach and providing its customers with the best suited solution for their business requirements,” comments Dror Limor, SkyVision VP Sales.
