Gilat Satcom announced that it is providing voice and high-speed data to ten villages in the states of Adamawa, Borno, Kano, Katsina, Oyo and Yobe in the North East of Nigeria.

Gilat Satcom’s Village Island system has been deployed in each village providing a full communications system that includes VSATs, Wi-Fi routers, solar-power, two communal tablets per village and service management.

Gilat Satcom is also providing the satellite connectivity to its VSATs in each village. The integrated Wi-Fi networks then provide local connectivity for data and VoIP to the communal tablets as well as to devices – phones, PCs, tablets and laptops – already owned by villagers and local businesses.

The entire system is housed in a purpose-built communications block (the Community Hub) in each village, photos of which can be seen here:
