Orange ups Africa capacity with Eutelsat

October 8, 2014

Eutelsat Communications and Orange have concluded a multi-year agreement for C-band capacity on the Eutelsat 3B satellite that broadens Orange’s satellite capabilities across Africa.

The capacity will support a fast response to enterprises by Orange Business Services for communications anytime, anywhere as well as serve Orange’s own internal requirements.

The newly leased resources complement C-band transponders already leased by Orange Business Services on the Eutelsat 5 West A and Eutelsat 10A satellites. The additional capacity will notably benefit enterprises operating in Africa who need reliable VSAT connectivity between geographically dispersed offices, including offshore sites.
