Internet

Taide, a subsidiary of Telenor Satellite Services, last Monday announced the opening a new international telecommunications gateway in Nairobi, Kenya. The new gateway, a joint project with local service provider Kenya Data Networks (KDN), now offers a carrier-class alternative to the Kenyan marketplace for international communications. Upon opening, the facility immediately began serving customers, with more than 50 percent of the capacity already in use.

The gateway provides Internet service providers (ISP), calling card operators and corporate customers international Internet Protocol (IP) access for Internet services and virtual private networks (VPN) as well as access to the international public switched telephone network (PSTN) over IP.

Located at the Kenya Data Networks building in Nairobi, which serves as the main communications center for Kenyan ISPs, the Taide gateway features fully-redundant operations over satellites from Intelsat and New Skies.
