What do telcos and MNOs, commercial and cruise shipping lines, energy and mining companies, airlines and governments in Africa all have in common? What they share is exponential growth in their need for access to, analysis and management of, vast volumes of data. This growth is dependent on constant and ubiquitous high-performance connectivity. But moving massive volumes of data within Africa and to regions outside of Africa can often be costly, difficult, and unsustainable. The solution is a flexible, high-bandwidth, low-latency, cloud-optimised seamless global network solution based on satellite connectivity. The panel will explore the various barriers in Africa to connectivity that exist today and how satellites are a cost-effective way to overcome the barriers.
