Paratus invests in satellite tech for enhanced internet access

04 September 2020

Paratus South Africa, part of pan-African telecom service provider, Paratus Africa, is investing in the country’s satellite market to offer quality connections to the region and the rest of Africa. 

Satellite technology provides internet service providers (ISPs) and businesses flexible, universal, reliable and cost-effective technology to address a wide range of communication needs.

Over the past year, Paratus South Africa has invested in hub acquisitions to improve the quality of their connection and service offering to ISPs who lease VSAT capacity or multinational organisations that require reliable, secure and end-to-end control.

VSAT forms an integral part of the communications solution as it enables both internet service providers and businesses to enjoy an easily accessible, secure and cost-effective connection anywhere in South Africa and Africa.

“To amplify our support for growth in Africa, we have upgraded our DVB-S2 hub to the DVB-S2x hub, allowing us to sustain exceptional performance and improve end-user expectations,” said Paratus South Africa MD, Kallie Carlsen.

The firm has also invested in additional capacity to expand communications needs in Africa via powerful satellite – the AMOS-17, through a partnership with Spacecom.
