The expansion of SkyVision’s VPN service allows local and global organizations located in DRC to connect branches with headquarters, making it possible to share information and collaborate efficiently via voice and data applications. Given DRC’s large size and scattered population, there is high-demand for reliable communications access, especially in remote areas. SkyVision is contributing to the country’s development and growth by serving a broad range of organizations including utilities, mining, public sector and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). SkyVision’s new iDirect hub in DRC is the provider’s fifth in Africa since upgrading its VSAT services to iDirect’s Evolution platform in 2009.
Evolution provides SkyVision with a highly reliable VSAT solution and a scalable platform so it can meet customer needs and keep pace with Africa’s rapid economic growth. Based on the next-generation DVB-S2 transmission standard with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM), Evolution delivers exceptional bandwidth efficiency and availability to help SkyVision guarantee high Service Level Agreements (SLAs) that its customers require to ensure their critical enterprise applications run smoothly. And because iDirect’s platform is built around IP, SkyVision is able to easily integrate its VSAT network with terrestrial and wireless networks to enable a seamless connectivity experience for customers no matter where they are located.
