SkyVision CEO: Company Investing Heavily in African Enterprise Markets
[Satellite TODAY Insider 02-15-11] SkyVision Global Networks, a provider of IP connectivity over satellite and fiber, is targeting more revenues from the African market, SkyVision CEO Doron Ben Sira told Satellite TODAY Insider.
In the last 10 years, SkyVision has invested more then $5 million in creating and expanding its African network. To capitalize on the region, SkyVision is targeting its corporate and enterprise markets in Nigeria – one of Africa’s biggest markets. "We have identified the urgent need of quality corporate connectivity services. We believe that the new services, targeted to the corporate market, are expected to increase our revenues in the African market by 25 percent compared to 2010," Ben Sira said.
SkyVision has been active in Nigeria for 10 years but will support the service by establishing a point of presence and teleport in Lagos via submarine cables and satellites to improve connectivity.
"In light of the exponential expansion of both national and international corporate activity in the country, there is no question that Nigeria is a strategic market for SkyVision," Ben Sira said. "We are well positioned to support the country’s most demanding customer requirements. Establishing a stronger local presence in the country will allow us to support the growing connectivity demands of the Nigerian people via the country’s leading Nigerian service providers. The new local branch will facilitate significant expansion of the company’s services in Nigeria, including a local hub to support the company’s single-hop VPN services and international fiber services."
With new international fiber services arriving on the shores of Africa, the true challenge for SkyVision, according to Ben Sira, will be to deliver attractive and viable solutions directly to customers and businesses. "SkyVision specializes in satellite-based cellular backhaul, and we see great progress in the connection of rural areas to cellular networks. It has taken SkyVision 10 years to build an outstanding reputation, and we intend to maintain it. Keeping the leading position in Africa will be our biggest task in 2011."
