      [Via Satellite 11-19-2015] Eutelsat has partnered with telecom infrastructure specialist Camusat to spur on better turnkey connectivity solutions for mobile operators in Sub-Saharan Africa. Using satellite, Eutelsat can deliver coverage of all African territories while Camusat leverages its expertise in telecom infrastructure deployment, including building, providing electrical power, and maintaining towers for mobile telephony networks via more than 1,000 employees in the African continent. The agreement is anticipated to drive growth of mobile communications that have dramatically expanded in sub-Saharan Africa but are still underdeveloped in remote rural areas where more than half of Africa’s population lives.

      “This partnership marks a new step in our collaboration with Africa’s mobile telephony operators. In addition to regular lease of satellite capacity to support network development, our new partnership with Camusat equips us to offer solutions covering the entire communication chain with maximum flexibility and irrespective of location,” said Michel Azibert, commercial and development director at Eutelsat.
