Press release from: Vizocom

Vizocom, a leading global provider of satellite services, announced today that it has signed a partnership agreement with iSAT Africa to cooperate in providing satellite services and solutions.

Sharjah, UAE, March 02, 2016 -- Vizocom, a leading global provider of satellite services, announced today that it has signed a partnership agreement with iSAT Africa to cooperate in providing satellite services and solutions such as data solutions including C-band VSAT services and turnkey end-to-end managed services, media solutions, transponder leases, and DTH. Vizocom and iSAT see this partnership as a first step in a growing mutual business relationship.

iSAT’s pan-African C-band VSAT coverage via MEASAT’s powerful AFRICASAT-1a satellite, extensive C-band service coverage and local presence in Africa both on fiber and VSAT including media and data, coupled with Vizocom’s presence and aggressive marketing in MEA and CIS countries allow this partnership to increase the market share via a bouquet of hybrid solutions and leverage on each other’s core competencies

Vizocom and iSAT believe that this new strategic partnership not only empowers both parties to grow their market in the competitive satellite industry, but more importantly allows both parties to complement each other to serve their customers better by assuring local presence and local support on all platforms. Our customers have a lot to gain from our collaboration and close support with each other, and they can get better and complete services and support, at better prices.

Mr. Mukundan Paravasthu, Vizocom’s Regional Sales Manager for EMEA & Latin America and UAE, commented: “We are very pleased with our partnership with MEASAT and iSAT Africa, and the C-band platforms operated by them using Africasat-1A. These C-band platforms allow us to address the opportunities in the marketplace cost-effectively on account of the high power and favourable elevation of the Africasat-1a satellite. Vizocom has been working closely with MEASAT for link budget support and with this new partnership with iSAT, we intend to take this cooperation to the next stage in an effort to enable each other to provide cost effective C-band solutions at competitive rates to our client base in Africa with a focus on our verticals in Oil & Gas, Construction, Mining and, and Security Industries, as well as governments and NGO customers. Vizocom can now access MEASAT’s Africasat-1a satellite C-band service & iSAT’s Terrestrial Hybrid solutions and offer the same to a wider market segment in Africa. Be it Government, Telco, Corporate, Broadcast and Media, Education, Healthcare, Hospitality, Financial, Transportation, or in the Oil and Gas industry, Vizocom can provide a comprehensive end to end solution.”

This partnership with Vizocom and Measat is another milestone we have achieved and we are excited says Rakesh Kukreja MD, iSAT Africa Ltd, and adds, we are very optimistic that this relationship will further enhance the reach of our core strengths deep into the African markets as we keep improvising to provide better and reliable services across Africa and Middle East.

Mr. Raj Malik, MEASAT’s Senior Vice President – Sales & Marketing, added: “MEASAT is delighted that Vizocom and iSAT Africa have partnered due to AFRICASAT-1a’s ability to deliver cost effective C-band solutions on a pan-African basis. This reinforces the trust service providers have in building service platforms using our satellite’s high-powered C-band beam.”
