Lives go wireless for villagers thanks to new base station project

18 January 2021

With a population of about 2,000, Duse is a remote village in north-eastern Kenya – 360km from the capital, Nairobi -- where most people are livestock farmers and others are involved in small-scale mining and agriculture.  When they needed internet access it meant a walk of 20km to the nearest town.

While the cities of Nairobi and Mombasa have good wireless infrastructure, just 22 per cent of Kenya’s population – most of whom live in villages – have internet access.

Fighting against the digital divide in rural Africa with Satmotion and Alusat

Connecting rural Angola

Connecting rural Angola

MSTelcom, a telecommunications and satellite communication based in Angola, is fighting against the digital divide by providing connectivity to rural parts of the country and successfully deploying a large network across it, supported by ST Engineering iDirect’s Evolution platform. 

This deployment was helped by the Integrasys VSAT Auto-Commissioning tool, Satmotion Pocket, which aids the delivery, commissioning and maintenance of VSAT services.

‘’It was a pleasure working with Integrasys on having this great solution in our network. We think that from now our goals will be achievable as expected and in record time. Among other achievements we expect to continue to meet our SLAs, reduce remote activation time, conduct faster performance site measurements, reduce international calls (to satellite space segment providers) for support and reduce OPEX significantly (due to less remotes site visits)," said Agostinho Kimpa Mungongo Kusseiala, satellite deputy team leader at MSTelcom. "For us, working with Integrasys is expected to be a partnership rather than a client-supplier relationship. Working together proved to be a great experience’."

Integrasys, the signal monitoring and interference detection player, has been awarded €1.5m by CDTI, the Spanish Delegation for ESA, for a project to develop the first Spanish and European interference cancellation technology for satellite signals without requiring a second antenna or knowing about the interference parameters.

This new technology can play a critical role in government networks, not necessarily only military; CLEANRF Integrasys solution cost is much more affordable than any other solution in the market today, with higher performance and lower physical footprint.
