SatADSL has partnered with YahClick to enhance its connectivity offering across Sub-Saharan Africa.


Dothey: Partnership “increases our ability to make a tangible and lasting difference in and across the communities from West to East Africa”

The partnership appoints SatADSL as a new Virtual Network Operator (VNO) partner to YahClick, the UAE-based broadband satellite services provider owned by Yahsat and its partner Hughes Network Systems.

The agreement will enable SatADSL to combine the capacity purchased from YahClick with its cloud-based service delivery platform (C-SDP) to deliver a full range of satellite services across Africa.

According to SatADSL, the partnership means that YahClick gains full access to the Belgian operator’s extensive licensed partner network spanning 45 countries worldwide that has over 3,500 deployments. This, SatADSL says, presents YahClick with new opportunities to expand its distribution.

Michel Dothey, chief commercial officer at SatADSL, said: “I am excited by the possibilities that present themselves ahead. Partnering with YahClick does more than just give us access to the company’s Service Delivery Platforms – it significantly increases our ability to make a tangible and lasting difference in and across the communities from West to East Africa we serve as part of our global connectivity offering. Our ability to offer high throughput Ka-band services will significantly impact the fate of some of the most underserved countries in the world, helping them to cross the digital divide and make the most of their considerable potential.”

SatADSL also announced previously that it has launched a new Point of Presence (PoP) in Orlando, Florida. As it continues to develop its offering globally, SatADSL will provide operators in the American region with access to its C-SDP. The platform – said to be the first of its kind – enables operators to deliver satellite services via the cloud without adding extra latency on top of that inherent in geostationary satellite communication, says the company.
