(11 March 2019 – ND SatCom) ND SatCom is proud to announce the partnership with iSAT Africa, a fast growing fixed-satellite solution service provider in Africa.
According to Rakesh Kukreja, Managing Director of iSAT Africa, the company is establishing new VSAT networks using the highly reputable and reliable SKYWAN 5G technology. ND SatCom FZE, situated in Dubai, UAE, is delivering the product and providing technical support.
In a current project, iSAT is connecting a UK location with multiple stations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the Union of the Comoros. This network uses channels for data and Internet traffic segregated at the VLAN level with end-to-end VLAN tagging. The available satellite capacity is pooled, with a restricted bandwidth share for data and Internet for the Comoros, and with the potential for DCR stations to get the entire pool capacity when it is not fully used by other stations. With additional MF-TDMA channels, this shared network can grow in the future.

ND SatCom’s SKYWAN 5G now supports data encryption for security-conscious customers through a hardware module featuring the 256-bit advanced encryption standard (AES-256). SKYWAN 5G customers can simply plug this module into existing VSAT networks to activate the encryption function. Since software release 1.4, this module supports all SKYWAN 5G rack systems delivered to date as well as new SKYWAN outdoor systems.
iSAT’s Satellite Solutions, backed by powerful satellites, teleport infrastructure and the latest technology solutions, are unique in the industry, whether it’s for transmission of video, internet, data or voice services.
