Simstream has partnered with SES to deliver satellite network management projects to clients. This follows Simstream’s recent announcement of the award of a satellite network contract by the Banque des Etats de l'Afrique Centrale, connecting 25 sites across six countries.
“SES is delighted to be partnering with Simstream Group and providing support for Simstream projects and clients, including the Banque des Etats de l'Afrique Centrale. We believe that the Middle East and Africa region, as well as Europe, presents many attractive satellite network business opportunities and this collaborative approach is the most effective way to address this market,” said Ibrahima Guimba-Saidou, senior vice president commercial Africa at SES.
Lionel Reina, chief executive officer of Simstream Group, added: “This new project partnership with SES is the perfect opportunity to collaborate and strengthen our go-to-market model for satellite network services and an approach that will be replicated with other clients and projects, in the banking sector but also in other industries across Africa and the Middle East. We already have a growing portfolio of managed services that we are now offering to these regional markets and which can be applied across a range of industry sectors. There is a clear and strong synergy between the two companies, on a strategic and technical level, that is benefitting Simstream clients and this was demonstrated at our recent joint management meeting in Paris.”
