Sat Space has introduced in 2015 its new iDirect hub located in Telemedia Teleport in Johannesburg connected directly to Teraco data center.
The hub supports 3 service segments:
- Customers in remote locations in South Africa that need internet service for local content and applications.
- Corporate customers with headquarters in JNB and remote branches across Africa and across South Africa with an MPLS network between headquarters and branches.
- Corporate customers with headquarters in the SADC region capitals – Maputo, Harare, Lusaka, Gaborone, Windhoek and others that have remote branches in country. The JNB hub serves as an in-country hub since the distance between the capitals and JNB adds less than 30ms latency.
