We launched Avanti EXTEND, a new managed service for rural connectivity

Avanti EXTEND delivers high-performance and cost-effective 2G, 3G and 4G solutions to remote and hard-to-reach areas across sub-Saharan Africa, providing reliable cellular service to the 100 million people living in these challenging locations that would otherwise be impossible to reach using traditional terrestrial infrastructure.

OUR SUPERIOR TECHNOLOGY

Technology and innovation are the beating heart of Avanti

In 2010, we were the first British commercial company to launch a Ka-band satellite, HYLAS 1. Today, we own and operate a fleet of high-throughput satellites covering EMEA, including state-of-the-art steerable capacity. On the ground, we have built a secure and resilient ground network to serve our communication industry partners across EMEA.

Avanti wins the Satellite of the Year Award

We have been crowned the Satellite of the Year Award for Technology and Innovation for the second year in a row at the Tech Innovation Awards in Nigeria (TIA).

Being recognised by TIA is a phenomenal achievement and testament to the impact Avanti are having in Nigeria.

In 2020, we started a programme to bring digital connectivity to thousands of sites across Nigeria, with the aim of closing the coverage gap and improving the welfare of the local communities. To date, we have deployed over 500 ultra-rural sites in 21 Nigerian States, providing life-enhancing 2G and 3G connectivity to 1.5 million people and we are set to deploy another 10,000 sites over the next 5 years.

5G FROM SPACE

Leading the way on satellite communication for 5G

Satellite communications play an important role in the extension of 5G cellular networks in particular to rural and hard-to-reach areas. We are working on the ever greater integration of satellite into the 5G ecosystem. Together with leading technology partners, we aim to develop and validate new technology, such as the first integration of a commercially available 5G core network with a live satellite network. This is an exciting development that will continue the path of changing lives through technical innovation.

Avanti and Free in Senegal sign landmark agreement

As we continue our journey to improve access to high-speed satellite internet for schools, hospitals and communities across Africa, we are delighted to have signed a partnership agreement with Free au Sénégal to build and host a new satellite gateway in Senegal for Avanti’s HYLAS 4 satellite.

The new gateway will provide satellite backhaul services to Avanti’s carrier customers across West Africa, extending their reach to rural areas and other semi-urban locations where terrestrial networks are currently limited or unreliable.

Amongst the many positives of increased connectivity, the partnership is due to make a big impact on education, enabling e-learning services for schools across the region.

HOW WE HELP

Powering the UK’s emergency services with EE

EE partners with Avanti to provide Satellite Cellular Backhaul to over 1,000 fixed and portable base stations across the UK. EE uses bandwidth from Avanti’s Ka-band satellites that connects all EE LTE sites across the country.

Avanti’s satellite cellular backhaul helps EE reach more remote and rural areas of the country, whilst simultaneously boosting the resilience of the network.

“The performance, reliability and versatility we get from satellite is really key for us. It has been part of our design and rollout of our network and how we actually operate the network in life.”

Richard Harrap, Managing Director of Emergency Services Network – EE

HOW WE HELP

Rural connectivity

Africa as a continent faces a challenge to connect rural users due to the nature of the landscape. Often the CAPEX required for fixed infrastructure to serve rural settlements that are beyond the main towns and cities is commercially non-viable for mobile network operators. Whilst microwave backhaul is an option in some locations, in many instances line of sight or distances involved require expensive and fragile multiple hop links.

Tanzania Telecommunications Corporation came to the realisation that satellite was the most cost efficient and quickest means of connecting these rural areas and commissioned Avanti to deploy VSAT services to remote locations across Tanzania.

HOW WE HELP

Connecting ships across the North Sea

We provide robust maritime broadband connectivity for a major Scottish ferry operator, providing 100% coverage of the ships’ routes across the North Sea and a private dedicated bandwidth pool shared between the five ferries and freight vessels.

“The new service, using Avanti’s Ka-band high throughput satellite, provides a significant increase in capacity for the ferries with fully scalable and dedicated bandwidth for both corporate operations and passengers.”

Steven Wood, Woodsons of Aberdeen Managing Director
