Intelsat to Reinforce and Extend Broadband Services in Mozambique
[Via Satellite 09-16-2015] Mozambique’s telecommunications company, Empresa Nacional de Telecomunicacoes de Mocambique, has renewed its relationship with Intelsat for satellite solutions that will help the company deliver broadband connectivity to corporate networks and provide cellular backhaul services to support residents in remote areas of the country.
Under the multi-year agreement, Empresa Nacional de Telecomunicacoes de Mocambique will use C-band capacity on Intelsat 902 at 62 degrees east to provide dual band connectivity for its own transport network and use with local cellular operators. For a country that is susceptible to heavy rainfall and flooding, C-band spectrum is particularly useful given its known performance and durability in adverse weather conditions.
“Our customers expect and deserve fast, reliable and continuous broadband connectivity regardless of location or weather,” said Zainadin Dalsuco, CEO at Empresa Nacional de Telecomunicacoes Mocambique. “By partnering with Intelsat, we can quickly scale our existing network to meet the increasing broadband demands in the remote areas of Mozambique and ensure that our network infrastructure is robust enough to retain and, as needed, quickly restore service to local cellular operators and their customers throughout the country.”
