Kymeta Takes Connectivity to AfricaCom with New Business Partnerships
Kymeta—the communications company making good on the promise of global, mobile satellite communications—will offer static demonstrations and live driving demonstrations of Kymeta solutions at AfricaCom, Tues-Thurs, November 13-15, 2018.
A total of seven of Kymeta’s global partners will be present at the show, several of which will host stands and live demonstrations for the media and tradeshow attendees: Intelsat (stand D60) and Stratosat (stand C191) will host live driving demonstrations in vehicles mounted with the Kymeta™ terminal, demonstrating reliable high-throughput communications on-the-move with an electronically steered, lightweight, easy to install satellite antenna. iDirect (stand D35A) and Talia (stand D31) will host informational sessions throughout the duration of the show, and ELB, Qkon, and Blue Sky Satellite will be in attendance.
“Seamless, reliable connectivity is critical in places such as South Africa, and the rest of the African continent, where remote sites heavily rely on communications systems for safety and business operations,” said Neville Meijers, chief commercial officer and executive vice president, Kymeta. “We are excited to come to AfricaCom and introduce our technology to this geographic region. We look forward to becoming part of the connectivity solution for the future of telecoms in Africa.”
Kymeta, a mobile satellite communications company founded in 2009 as a Duke University start-up, offers products to simplify satellite connections needed for instant broadband service. Their technology offers infinite applications for land, sea and air—from connected vehicles and freight trains to luxury yacht and construction vehicles, the possibilities are endless.
