Eutelsat Communications SA, a provider of fixed satellite services, and Belgium Satellite Services, or BSS, a teleport and satellite communications provider in Europe and Asia,have announced the signature of a new long-term contract for 46MHz of C-band capacity on the EUTELSAT 10A satellite.
According to Eutelsat, the new capacity on EUTELSAT 10A will allow BSS to expand VSAT services for the client base of more than 150 businesses, NGOs and government administrations built by INTERSAT in over 25 countries in Africa and the Middle East, and to develop new business. Networks will be managed by BSS using its teleport in Lessive (Belgium) and state of the art ground station equipped with the latest iDirect technology.
Nitin Dhawan, CEO of Belgium Satellite Services, said: "We are happy to take our strong 10- year relationship with Eutelsat to the next level. This is important for BSS as the acquisition of INTERSAT has significantly expanded the scope of our business. Thanks to the extensive Cband footprint on EUTELSAT 10A satellite we can build a strong platform for service provision across the African continent and the Middle East.
"We are now positioned to strengthen our response to businesses and multinationals in demanding enterprise sectors, including the banking sector, that need secure and scalable networks. The new capacity enables us to consolidate our long-term positioning in this part of the world, boosting our international expansion."
