Vizada deal with SES World Skies

November 9, 2010

SES World Skies has signed a capacity agreement with Vizada Networks for reliable telecommunications network back-up across Africa’s Sub Saharan region.

A full 36 MHz transponder aboard SES World Skies’ NSS-5 satellite is delivering GSM backhaul restoration service, supporting a leading African telecom provider’s voice network in the event of a terrestrial outage. It is the latest in a series of strategic deals between Vizada Networks and SES World Skies that now tap a dozen transponders on five satellites to enable everything from mobile communications, corporate networks and internet access across Africa and the Middle East.
