Nigerian: NIGCOMSAT partners IT firm to upgrade facilities

The Nigerian Communication Satellite Limited has advanced its service capabilities by upgrading to cutting-edge technology.

This progress follows the company’s partnership agreement with Dimension Data, a top IT solutions provider.

In a press release shared on Monday, NIGCOMSAT Limited’s Managing Director, Mrs. Jane Egerton-Idehen, stated that the upgrade will allow the company to deliver superior services to its clients.

“We have upgraded our facility to cutting-edge technology, and we are confident that we can compete favourably in the global satellite market,” she said.

The partnership agreement, signed in Lagos on Friday, will enable NIGCOMSAT to provide internet services to Dimension Data via its NigComSat-1R network platform for an initial period of one year.

This agreement is part of NIGCOMSAT’s strategy to establish itself as a leading player in the satellite industry.

Egerton-Idehen expressed optimism about the partnership, noting that NIGCOMSAT had completed a successful pilot scheme with Dimension Data and had signed a Master Service Agreement.

“We are glad that Dimension Data is happy with the results of our pilot, and we are committed to ensuring that our service delivery is excellent, our infrastructure reliable, and our technology continuous,” she said.

The Country Director of Dimension Data, Mr Olugbenga Olabiyi, also commented on the partnership, stating that his company was focused on creating unique and bespoke IT solutions for its customers.

“We are committed to delivering services that are value-driven, and we believe that our partnership with NIGCOMSAT will help us achieve this goal,” he said.

The upgrade and partnership are part of the Nigerian government’s efforts to promote digital transformation and inclusion in the country’s economy. The Minister of Communications, Innovation and Digital Economy, Dr. Bosun Tijani, has been spearheading initiatives to expand connectivity and promote digital inclusion.

With its upgraded technology and partnership with Dimension Data, NIGCOMSAT is poised to play a significant role in achieving the government’s digital economy objectives.

Egerton-Idehen noted, “We are not late to the market, and we are committed to taking our rightful position in the global satellite industry.”
