Onlime has signed a capacity contract during IBC, with Gazprom Space Systems (GSS). The contract allows GSS capacity on the Yamal-402 satellite, increasing its Ku offering to address a growing demand in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Onlime has full Ku and C-Band satellite coverage for VSAT services over the African continent, providing reliable business communications solutions to the enterprise market, whether directly through one of its own offices or via its substantial network of partners and VSAT resellers. Excellent coverage and the reliability of Yamal-402, in combination, with its long expected life, makes it a good fit for further penetration into many markets within its footprint, allowing for small VSAT terminals to be deployed in majority of locations in Africa. Onlime services include enterprise quality VoIP across Africa.
“We are pleased to sign the contract with such a reputable company as Onlime, for the use of Yamal-402 capacity over Africa allowing them to offer services in many African countries. We intend to further develop relationship with Onlime in African and Middle East markets”, said Dmitry Sevastiyanov, GSS Director General.
Paul Ziegler, Onlime CEO said: “Onlime is at the forefront of providing business communications solutions to the enterprise market across Africa that include satellite and fibre based networks, MPLS, VoIP and wireless solutions. The addition of Yamal-402 is part of network strategy to be able to offer seamless coverage across the African continent to address the needs of the market. We are proud of our partnership with Gazprom and look forward to growing the relationship further”.
