SES taps BringCom for hosting and co-location in Sub-Saharan Africa

SES has chosen the Djibouti Teleport facility managed by BringCom to install additional antennas and equipment (TVRO/DVB) for video broadcast applications in the sub-Saharan Africa region.

These new hosting and colocation services are expansions to the 9 metre Ku-band antenna, hub equipment and backhaul services installed and maintained for SES by BringCom since 2014.

The Djibouti Teleport facility, with international MPLS fibre connectivity via multiple fibre circuit routing options, allows operators to deploy new antennas and collocate equipment to reach additional government and enterprise customers across Africa and the Middle East.

“BringCom is very pleased to announce this new multi-year teleport services contract, which demonstrates the multiple capabilities of BringCom personnel and the Djibouti Teleport,” said Fabrice Langreney, President and CEO of BringCom. “This additional contract from SES, including hosting of equipment, Ku-band antenna services, data backhaul and continuing maintenance, is a validation of BringCom’s strategy and investment in the region.”
