Spacecom providing hybrid cellular-satellite broadband in Cameroon

Internet

AMOS-uplink1Satellite operator Spacecom is providing rural settlements and educational institutions in Cameroon with hybrid cellular and satellite-delivered broadband via the Amos-5 satellite at 17° East.

Spacecom is cooperating with Ringo S. A., a Cameroon ISP, to supply over 120 educational institutions, community centers and rural villages with broadband internet connections.

The solution allows users to take advantage of satellite for downloading data while relying on cellular or other terrestrial data networks for Internet upload requests. A user sends a request to the cloud via a GSM modem and all the information is accessed from the satellite with a high throughput downlink.
