Spacecom Signs E-Learning Deal in Nigeria
Israeli satellite operator Spacecom has signed a multi-year contract to enable internet connectivity and e-learning solutions for schools in Nigeria together with a local partner Intertel, and in partnership with Zinox, a Nigerian internet and e-Learning service provider. The deal was announced on Monday. Financial details were not disclosed.
Spacecom said its AMOS-17 digital and C-band High Throughput Satellite (HTS) capabilities will enable unique satellite efficiencies covering all of Nigeria with one single beam Spacecom believes this compares favorably to using multiple smaller beams as common with other high throughput satellites covering the region. As a result, Spacecom believes it can offer significant economic benefits and flexibilities, such as lower CapEx as well as cost-effective ongoing OpEx, materializing advantage all the way to the end customer over an excellent coverage of communities.
“Quality communication and e-learning solutions are important at all times and especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to Spacecom and the AMOS-17’s unique capabilities and cost-effective solution, Zinox was able to gain significant advantages and high performance. We are excited to provide more reliable service to Nigerian schools,” said Abolade Kazeem, head of technical operations at Zinox
