EMC Satcom Technologies Announces Backhaul Agreement with Hatef Libya
EMC Satcom Technologies, a division of Emerging Markets Communications, announced today an agreement with Hatef Libya to provide a satellite network across the country to serve telecom backhaul, oil and gas, banking, and government.
The solution is built upon EMC Satcom Technologies' SatLink product line to provide reliable satellite networking technologies utilizing trusted international open standards. With SatLink, Hatef will enable robust services across Libya while reducing overall operational expenses.
Hatef Libya, established in 2008, operates and maintains the Libyan State communications systems and is responsible for the development of a quality phone network across the country. The company is a major contributor to the growth of the economy and improving the society in general.
Payam Herischi, President and CCO of EMC Satcom Technologies, said:
"Our solution will provide a single, efficient and dynamic satellite backhaul network that will multiply the total available capacity to each site many fold, lower the cost per site, and improve link availability dramatically."
The SatLink solution will be rolled out in two phases, with nine sites initially implemented for telecom backhaul on a hybrid mesh-star network, providing Libya's major cities with much improved telecom infrastructure. Phase 2 includes roll-out to 30 additional sites to serve oil and gas, banking, and government applications across the country.
Mr. Juma Abugrain, Head of the Technical Department at Hatef Libya, said:
"SatLink is an excellent match for Hatef. In striving to provide the best services for Libya, we are excited to have the extensive experience and ingenuity of EMC Satcom Technologies to give us the most efficient and reliable networking services available, which we can pass on to our customers and the citizens of Libya."
