SkyVision gets new POP in Abuja

Leading global provider of Internet Protocol (IP) connectivity over satellite and fibre optic systems, SkyVision Global Networks Limited has advanced its services with the establishment of new Point-of-Presence (PoP) facility in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The SkyVision’s existing PoP in Lagos and new PoP in Abuja are connected to the company’s global MPLS backbone network which enables its customers’ direct access to the international internet backbone.
SkyVision Sales Director for West Africa, Mr. Eitan Mesika, said this has been made possible through SkyVision’s broad network as well as connectivity from anywhere in the world to Nigeria using multiple submarine cables.
“Providing unlimited, high-quality internet access services through our PoP in Abuja directly to the customer premises dramatically improves the customer experience and places SkyVision as a true end-to-end solution provider,” he said.
The new PoP in Abuja, he said, would also allow organizations to benefit from SkyVision’s Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) hub in Lagos, which provides satellite-based virtual private network services, connecting corporate headquarters to sites that are not covered by any reliable fiber or microwave service.
The company's fibre-based services, he said, include SkyVision Internet Access, SkyVision IP-Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Carrier Ethernet services.
Also, he noted that SkyVision offers its Internet and VPN customers in Nigeria, comprehensive Managed Firewall Services which include Managed Services and Self-Service layers to enable SkyVision customers with options including firewall, traffic shaping, SSL VPN and Unified Threat Management (UTM) by web content filtering and application control and integrated intrusion prevention including antivirus and spyware. 

He further pointed out that these services provide excellent benefits to enterprise customers as they improve productivity and provide network security without the need to invest in installing and managing dedicated equipment for their network.

Stressing, “As a local provider, we believe in the importance of the Nigerian market and will continue to invest considerable resources in developing and extending our fibre network coverage and services within the country.
