Another opportunity for SatADSL to showcase its outstanding technology to bring satellite internet to rural areas in Africa: the African Postal Forum, the most important summit within this field in the continent, is starting today at Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

The Belgian telecom company is one of the partners of the event, and it’s already present at the venue that hosts the forum.

SatADSL is represented in Abidjan by Caroline De Vos, co-founder and COO of the company, and standing next to its official partner from Senegal, Numherit.

This is the seventh edition of the African Postal Forum, held under the patronage of the Ministry of Post Services and Numeric Economy of Ivory Coast.

The minister Bruno Nabagne is one of the speakers, along with other high officials from Morocco, Tanzania, Lebanon or Switzerland.

Officials from more than 25 countries and more than 300 professionals and key players on the Postal Services area will be networking for the next two days in Abidjan under the slogan “Between Digital Government and Civic Service”.

One of these key players is SatADSL, who keeps on innovating by bringing reliable internet connection via satellite to rural and remote areas in Africa.

One of the most successful connectivity solutions from SatADSL is specifically designed for postal services: it allows Post Offices from rural areas to perform financial operations such as deposits, withdrawals, loans, money transfer and even ATM.

During African Postal Forum, Caroline De Vos will be showcasing this SatADSL specific solution for the African Postal Offices, which is very easy to install and very affordable to maintain: it only uses microVSAT with a 1-meter antenna and guarantees reliable and secure communications.
