Spacecom’s new division adds value to customers by enabling them to reach a broader range of new business opportunities as they add complementary applications and push further into digital markets. The new division’s first deal is a multi-year contract with a leading Southern Africa VSAT services provider via AMOS-7.

Spacecom is partnering with select international and local vendors as well as integration, installation, operation and management experts on a case by case basis. Based on its growing satellite fleet, the company is working with clients and partners to determine the optimal solution for the new services utilizing capacity on AMOS-3, AMOS-4, AMOS-7 and AMOS-17, following the latter’s scheduled launch in 2019 to service Africa.
