Measat Satellite Systems has signed agreement with iSAT Africa for capacity on the Africasat-1a satellite. Under the terms of their agreement, iSAT will expand their VSAT and broadcast solutions across Africa using Africasat -1a’s high-powered pan-African C-band coverage.
Africasat -1a was launched in February 2013 and provides high-powered C-band satellite services and content across Africa with connectivity into Europe, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia.
Santosh Sakpal, Technical Manager, iSAT commented: “We selected Africasat -1a due to the growing demand of our customers for data trunking, broadcasting, and GSM backhaul solutions. Africasat -1a is the best choice to meet these requirements, due to its high power and its African and European coverage via a single beam.”
