Hertfordshire, UK, March 12, 2014 – SkyVision Global Networks Ltd., a leading global communications provider, today announced its continued commitment to the African market, in particular, in Nigeria, where the company has a strong and active local presence. For over a decade, SkyVision has focused on becoming the corporate communications ‘solution of choice’ in Nigeria, with the establishment of hubs and PoPs in Lagos and Abuja to deliver quality communications to customers nationwide.
SkyVision’s growing presence in Nigeria, coupled with its vast suite of services for the country’s corporate sector and uniquely tailored end-to-end solutions pointed at the Oil & Gas industry, is proof of the company’s commitment to changing the face of communications in Nigeria.
SkyVision’s customized solutions for the Oil & Gas sector, are recognized for their multiple benefits, including the ensured, effective business communications between onshore and offshore teams, optimized business productivity, guaranteed bandwidth necessary for real time applications, support for mission-critical business applications and the enhanced crew welfare due to the provision of reliable satellite connectivity for high-speed voice, video and data applications.
The company’s recent win with SAPETRO (South Atlantic Petroleum), a leading Nigerian oil and gas upstream company, is affirmation of its continued commitment to this expanding corporate sector. The 5-year project integrates SkyVision’s voice and data solutions and services to connect SAPETRO’s offices and operational sites. With connectivity and crew safety as its #1 priority, oil and gas customers understand that reliable information flow results in ‘smooth sailing’ – a safe vessel and a safe crew. The project includes mesh VSAT and wireless point-to-multipoint connections for mobile terrestrial units and vessels, voice and telephony over IP, 2-way radios, mobile satellite phones, managed firewall, and WiFi.
“We are taking a lead role in one of the region’s most exciting and fast-paced markets,” comments Jean Daniel Tragus, SkyVision Oil & Gas Director. “As we usher in 2014, SkyVision will further extend its commitment to Nigeria’s oil and gas industry, with new partnerships, customers, and prospects.
