VT iDirect announced that Dalkom Somalia has installed an iDirect Hub and will leverage iDirect’s series remotes to provide high-speed satellite connectivity in Somalia. The new iDirect network will enable Dalkom Somalia to scale its service more cost-effectively, expand end-user data rates up to 38.5 Mbps, and improve Service Level Agreements (SLAs) by reducing service set-up duration. It will also provide back-up connectivity for service restoration in cities as needed, according to iDirect.

Dalkom Somalia offers solutions for broadband, connectivity, cloud computing, managed services, satellite services, and internet services for businesses, wholesale and consumer segments. Financed by Dalkom Somalia as part of the company’s strategy to improve infrastructure in the Horn and East Africa, the new iDirect network will serve a range of markets, including government and Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), charities, healthcare, academic institutions, Internet Service Providers (ISPs), telecommunications operators and financial services, according to the company.

“Through the iDirect platform, we are opening up areas where no connectivity has existed before,” said Mohamed Ahmed Jama, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Dalkom Somalia. “iDirect’s platform technology enables us to gain critical operations advantages by increasing data performance and efficiency, and shortening service installation. And these are critical requirements to expand our service reach and capabilities.”
