CAPE TOWN – THE Eutelsat Group and NEC XON have signed a multi-year master distribution agreement to bring high-quality low earth orbit (LEO) connectivity to Sub-Saharan Africa.

The agreement between the global satellite communications company and African ICT integrator, respectively, encompasses services, equipment, installation, and comprehensive training across Sub-Saharan Africa.

The companies explained Eutelsat OneWeb’s LEO satellite-based network will provide high throughput and low latency connectivity to support rapid digital economy growth.

This move is anticipated to support the pressing need for seamless connectivity without borders, in applications such as cellular backhaul, oil and gas, agriculture, government and mining.

The companies revealed the integration with NEC XON’s ICT services would enable advanced connectivity designed for the demands of the African continent.

Furthermore, the agreement provides for a bandwidth-and service-level agreement guarantee to ensure customers get quality speed.

Wally Beelders, Executive Communications Solutions at NEC XON, said the collaboration signifies a pivotal leap towards a more connected Sub-Saharan Africa.

“This is in line with our commitment to equipping businesses across the continent with solutions that drive growth and innovation,” Beelders said.

Cyril Dujardin, General Manager Connectivity at Eutelsat OneWeb, said by teaming up with NEC XON, Eutelsat OneWeb is positioning its satellite prowess with regional expertise to reshape connectivity in Sub-Saharan Africa.

“This partnership demonstrates the LEO’s power to transcend geographical constraints and unlock new applications such as connected agriculture, connected mine sites, connected enterprise and local government e-services,” Dujardin stated.

LEO satellites are lauded as the best solution for connecting remote, hostile or rural areas to the internet when traditional terrestrial or cell-based internet connections are not an option.
