MEASAT Satellite Systems has signed an agreement with iSAT Africa for capacity on the AFRICASAT-1a satellite.

Under the terms of their agreement, iSAT will expand its VSAT and broadcast solutions across Africa using AFRICASAT-1a’s high-powered pan-African C-band coverage.

AFRICASAT-1a was launched in February 2013 and provides high-powered C-band satellite services and content across Africa with connectivity into Europe, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia.

Santosh Sakpal, technical manager, iSAT, commented: “We selected AFRICASAT-1a due to the growing demand of our customers for data trunking, broadcasting, and GSM backhaul solutions. AFRICASAT-1a is the best choice to meet these requirements, due to its high power and its African and European coverage via a single beam.”

“MEASAT is delighted to welcome iSAT Africa onboard the AFRICASAT-1a satellite,” added Raj Malik, senior vice president – Sales and Marketing, MEASAT. “We look forward to support iSAT in providing higher quality VSAT and broadcast solutions across Africa.”
