Hub in South Africa

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:

  1. Customers in remote locations in South Africa that need internet service for local content and applications.
  2. Corporate customers with headquarters in JNB and remote branches across Africa and across South Africa with an MPLS network between headquarters and branches.
  3. 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.
