HEADLINERS: Recent Customer Win 

 
 
Cable & Wireless Seychelles Gets Connected! 
CWS Implements SkyVision IP Trunking and Managed Private Network
 
SkyVision has commenced the implementation of its IP Trunking and Managed Private Network solution for Cable & Wireless Seychelles (CWS), part of the Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC) group of companies. The project, managed by SkyVision, consists of providing IP Trunking to the main island of Seychelles (Mahe), and a private VSAT network for its surrounding islands. 
Founded in 1893, CWS is the leading telecommunications company in Seychelles, where over 95% of local businesses make up the company’s broad customer base. In an effort to provide feasible communications between the main island and its 12 neighbouring, smaller islands, CWS required a reliable and efficient network solution that would include fibre restoration for back-up and Internet service with additional back up for their key customers.  To meet CWS’s immediate needs, SkyVision commissioned its IP trunking service, based on the latest technology developments of DVB-S2X, enabling cost-effective yet a Telco-grade solution.

The SkyVision Team

 

Message from the CEO 

 

Dear Colleagues,  
 
This is indeed an exciting year for SkyVision and I am delighted to have taken on the new role as CEO of the company at this important time. SkyVision is built on its employees’ dedication and high level of professionalism. This is complemented by the company’s market-proven products and solutions and a keen understanding of our industry. As a team, we will continue to forge ahead into new markets and leverage our position as a leader in the African and global communications market. 
 
I am pleased to report that over the last two quarters, SkyVision’s marketing and sales efforts resulted in several new customer wins including; Sapetro, Cable & Wireless, Unity Bank and many more. We attribute the success of these new customers and a host of prospects to SkyVision’s reputation for providing superior and reliable service backed by a strong local presence including subsidiaries in Africa that include offices in Guinea, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, South Africa, and soon to be established – in Nigeria. Offering a high level of dedicated, on-site customer support, service and SLA is what differentiates SkyVision. 
 
Furthermore, to enhance our activities and broaden our customer base, we welcome Mr. Dror Limor who recently took on the role of SkyVision VP Sales & Marketing. Mr. Limor brings extensive experience in the telecommunication market and in depth knowledge of the African market. 
 
Working closely with our partners around the globe, our objective is clear – to deliver superior solutions; to maintain our high level of customer support and service, and to become the ‘solution of choice’ for customers around the globe. We will continue to work diligently to strengthen our global network infrastructure, meeting and exceeding our customers’ needs.
 
I am proud to be on board and equally proud to be a part of the SkyVision team.

Message from the VP Sales & Marketing

 

Dear Valued Partners & Customers, 
 
It is a pleasure to have become a part of the SkyVision team and to take on management of a strong global group of sales professionals and marketing specialists.   Combining the Sales & Marketing divisions under ‘one roof’ was a strategic decision and one which has improved our understanding of customer requirements and to provide quicker time-to-market.  
 
Over the past year, SkyVision has greatly expanded its connectivity and value-added solution portfolio alongside its integration capabilities, making it a one-stop-shop, by providing its customers with leading turn-key and end-to-end solutions. We are now focusing our efforts on further expanding our local presence and new market penetration as we forge ahead into Eastern Africa and further invest into our South African and Nigerian business units. 
 
Expanding our reach also involves further investing into our global infrastructure. The recent deployment of fiber in Guinea, for example, was specially designed to support corporate, as well as small business telecom and application bandwidth requirements. 
 
Our mission is to continue to deliver innovative solutions such as these to enhance our customers’ user experience and help them grow their business – today, and well into the future. 
 
Ramadan Kareem to all of our muslim customers and partners. 
 
Dror Limor
