Orange shows their colors in Central African Republic, in partnership with SES Networks as they unveiled their new high-speed internet connectivity solution for enterprises, prior to the launch of the service in the country.

IP Transit Architecture


The solution, enabled by SES Networks, uses IP Transit architecture and delivers a fully managed service with low latency and high throughput IP transit capabilities. The new service is designed to provide superior quality internet connections of up to 2 Gbps, via the SES Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite fleet.

Corinne Lozé, CEO at Orange Central African Republic said that they are delighted to launch this service today, as this is a real game-changer. Now businesses in the Central African Republic will be able to unleash their growth potential and avail themselves of all the benefits high-speed connectivity brings, and that the advantage of the satellite-based solution is that it brings connectivity even in remote areas, where terrestrial telecoms infrastructures are not sufficient. In addition, MEO services are able to provide fiber-like speeds, making this solution ideal for a country as vast as the Central African Republic.

Carole Kamaitha, Vice President Sales Africa at SES Networks added that this new service launched by Orange opens a new era in enterprise connectivity in the Central African Republic, and with an additional layer of resiliency, this reliable, high-speed, and low latency connectivity will enable local companies to use cloud applications, help improve productivity and grow their businesses.
