SkyVision SA expands local partner network with Broadlink
INDUSTRY| Aug. 15, 2012, 1:46 p.m.
SkyVision Networks South Africa has signed an agreement with Broadlink; a leading local telecoms infrastructure provider; to bring reliable, secure and cost-effective Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Internet connectivity services to South African corporates and multinationals seeking African connectivity.
Mike Brown, Managing Director of Broadlink said: “Broadlink has made great strides in the South African business market, however we have seen an increased demand from our customers for communication solutions catering to business sites and branches across our borders.
"By partnering with SkyVision we can now accommodate their requirements for connectivity solutions across the African continent – allowing us to expand our reach exponentially."
SkyVision’s VSAT services allow Broadlink to offer end-to-end business connectivity to corporate sites that cannot be served by a reliable terrestrial or wireless connection. Broadlink offers managed, performance-guaranteed connections for the South African corporate market.
SkyVision Networks South Africa’s VSAT services will enhance Broadlink’s range of dedicated terrestrial and wireless communication solutions. A subsidiary of SkyVision Global Networks, SkyVision SA is a leading provider of IP connectivity over satellite and fibre optic networks.
By using SkyVision Satellite services and its state-of-the-art local Hub and Teleport, Broadlink will offer flexible and scalable solutions for businesses looking to expand their communications requirements from Southern Africa into and around Africa.
One of the first Broadlink customers to use SkyVision’s VPN VSAT service is a pan-African logistics and distribution firm that uses SkyVision services for interconnecting its extensive network of offices and facilities across South Africa and sub-equatorial Africa.
“SkyVision showcased its professional abilities and demonstrated amazing flexibility which allowed us to customize the service offering and suit it to meet the customer’s technical requirements and budget,” Andre Engelbrecht, Broadlink VSAT Services specialist stated.
Iftah Amit, SkyVision's Vice President of Sales commented: "SkyVision South Africa is thrilled to have Broadlink as one of its channel partners in South Africa. This partnership aligns with our ongoing strategy to increase our high quality services reach to business customers in South Africa.”
