Satcon has decided to use CryptoGuard’s Conditional Access platform, and also CryptoGuard’s Subscriber Manager System to help them monetise its operation in a more efficient way. The two networks are in Congo and Gabon.

“We have chosen CryptoGuard CAS and SMS in comparison with the majority of other competitors. The cooperation with CryptoGuard is amazing. CryptoGuard is a flexible, cost-effective and reliable CAS alternative in the market” says Bassam Fahs, IT and Technical manager at Satcon and continues.
