During the last 2 weeks Castor Networks RDC has installed 5 new VSAT connections in the middle of the Ebola area near Mbandaka in the northern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Castor Networks DRC won several tenders to supply reliable VSAT connections.
The first site was up and running within 48 hours after signing the contract. Customers include NGOs as well as UN agencies. The installation team travelled deep into the epidemic area to villages like Bikoro, Iboko and Itipo.
All sites are activated on C-band for the most reliable connections in tropic rain and provide multiple Mbps of dedicated capacity to the sites. Fast delivery was a major advantage of Castor since it had the stock available and a well-qualified team in the area.
More sites are expected to follow.
