Friday 31 March 2017 | 11:08 CET | News

Intelsat said that eProcess International, an affiliate of pan-African banking conglomerate Ecobank Group, has signed an agreement to use the Intelsat EpicNG platform to expand and strengthen its corporate banking services. EProcess International connects head offices and affiliates in 27 countries in Africa, enabling banking transactions and corporate data exchanges on its network. Given the growth in commerce across the African continent, eProcess sought to enhance its network to address increasing transaction volumes for its customers.   

The service incorporates high-throughput Intelsat EpicNG C-band spot beam capacity available exclusively on Intelsat 35e.  This complements the existing eProcess network, which uses wide beam C-band connectivity on Intelsat 903. Using the retro-compatibility of Intelsat EpicNG and the higher efficiency of the spot beams, eProcess can accommodate its growing bandwidth demand throughout its African network.
