SkyVision deploys Bank of Africa communications network

5 Aug 2014

SkyVision Global Networks has announced the successful implementation of the first phase of a communications project with the Bank of Africa (BOA) Burkina Faso. The project included the deployment of a full communications solution through the SkyVision VPN service, connecting BoA headquarters in the capital Ouagadougou to its branch offices throughout the country. The combined solution includes a Romantis UHP hub and SkyVision VPN, a VSAT-based communications solution that provides organisations with superior network performance and reliability. The BOA headquarters in Ouagadougou will host the Romantis hub, which will in turn converge to the remote sites (BOA branches) and operate in a fully autonomous environment dedicated solely to BOA sites. This will allow for the connection of remote branch offices enabling them to quickly and efficiently share information by means of voice and data applications, with no investment in additional infrastructure. ‘This project is an important win and an even more important milestone for SkyVision,’ commented SkyVision CEO Ori Watterman, adding: ‘We welcome the opportunity of a long term partnership with BOA and highly value our business relationship. We look forward to continue growing our mutual business and offering our solutions to the entire BOA Group.’
