O3B NET­WORKS IN­VESTS IN CA­PAC­ITY AFRICAN UP­GRADE VIA RCS-COM­MU­NI­CA­TION

Capacity - - Africa -

O3b Net­works has an­nounced an agree­ment with Rcs-com­mu­ni­ca­tion to in­crease its band­width ca­pac­ity in Africa over the next two years.

RCS uses O3b­trunk to con­nect its WIMAX and High Through­put PTMP net­works in the cap­i­tal, of South Su­dan, Juba, to the in­ter­net.

RCS has nearly ex­hausted its con­tracted ca­pac­ity as de­mand for band­width con­tin­ues to in­crease rapidly.

“The tim­ing may seem un­ex­pected for us to up­grade ca­pac­ity and in­vest in O3b’s di­ver­sity so­lu­tion, as most play­ers in the South Su­dan Telco/isp sec­tor are cur­rently scal­ing down due to eco­nomic and other chal­lenges.” said Flip­pie Oden­dal, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Rc­scom­mu­ni­ca­tion. “While RCS is by no means iso­lated from these is­sues and their im­pact, our in­vest­ment de­ci­sion was taken with a long term view, though it will have im­me­di­ate ben­e­fits to our clients once de­ployed” he said.
