VSAT Internet for the Romanian Air Force in Mali

Romanian Air Force case in bullet points:

  • Romanian Air Force camp in Gao (Mali)
  • VSAT solution for work and leisure purposes
  • Reliable and fast internet 

Business issue:

The Romanian Air Force camp in Gao (Mali) was suffering from a bad Internet connection provided by a local ISP. Romanian Air Force decided to look for a professional VSAT  service provider which could offer them reliable and fast internet. They needed a fast Internet connection for work and leisure purposes. It was essential for staff well-being to set up a good Skype connection for contacting their families in Romania.

Castor Networks advised to install a 2.4meter C-band dish. This provides 99.7% reliability and supports high bandwidth on both the uplink and downlink with affordable equipment. Castor shipped the equipment within days after the order was placed. Installation in a remote area of Mali is of course a challenge. But, thanks to our local installer, we managed to ensure complete installation within a few days.

Cooperation between Romanian Air Force and Castor 

"In the name of the Romanian Air Force staff, we would like to convey our appreciation regarding our collaboration with satellite communications service provider Castor Networks. They are providing satellite communications services in the period between 2019-2020 for the Romanian Air Force detachment, deployed for the Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali under United Nations Flag. The satellite communication services, regarding both hardware and software, are of high quality and comply with technical standards and protocols." - Captain Serban Violeta Mirela (Romanian Air force - Mali)
