Hope rises for mobile satellite broadband in remote areas across Africa
London, November 19, 2018 (AltAfrica)-Satellite, and terrestrial network operator Talia Ltd has entered into a partnership arrangement to supply Kymeta™ products across Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
Kymeta flat-panel Ku-band KyWay™ terminals enable high-throughput mobile data and communications, ideal for users on the move.
The terminals provide reliable, low maintenance connectivity even at high speed or across rough terrain with operators benefiting from the simple power-on startup and auto-acquisition features.
With Talia’s extensive satellite coverage of the regions, customers across multiple sectors including NGOs, mining, construction, energy, and telemedicine can benefit from the additional flexibility to connect while on the move, or for operations that require frequent movement without the need for a satellite technician.
A happy Alan Afrasiab, Talia President and CEO, said “This new partnership fits perfectly with Talia’s commitment to go ‘beyond the modem’. Talia can now provide all of the elements required from the Teleport to the Kymeta terminal to full vehicle integration for customers. We are seeing growing demand for such applications, particularly in the large multinational and NGO sectors. These operations require continuous communication capability for their applications, at any location very rapidly. This is just the start of a significant growth sector for Talia, and we are excited to be working with Kymeta”.
Rash Jhanjee, Vice President of Sales, EMEA, Kymeta Corporation, added, “We look forward to working with Talia to enable end-to-end broadband communications to provide a seamless, always-connected solution”.
