November 7, 2017 - InterSat, a leading satellite solution
provider and ABS announced the launch of iDirect platforms on ABS-3A C-band and
Ku-band beams. These platforms will provide quality broadband internet across
Sub-Sahara and South Africa, as well as serving French speaking African
countries. With the growing demand for broadband internet services, users in
Africa demand services at low entry cost including hardware and bandwidth.
InterSat with ABS, can now offer Software Virtual Network Operator (SVNO) access
to resellers in Africa to distribute and manage internet services at affordable
pricing on both C and Ku-band. Resellers can control their VSAT network and
manage services to their clients without the need for investment in hardware.
InterSat will operate the services from its new and state-of-the-art teleport
in Nairobi using ABS-3A’s pan-Africa beams. Both Ku- and C-band coverage offers
excellent elevation across Africa.
