Both parties decided to cement this partnership in place to align with their new, strategic direction in the space market.
Under the newly signed agreement with MEASAT, Azercosmos will use all of the C-band capacity of Azerspace-1/AFRICASAT-1a to provide satellite services throughout the African region.
The C-band capacity of Azerspace-1 ensures that Azercosmos will enhance and protect the interests of hundreds of established services and millions of African end-users.
The company will also ensure the continued seamless distribution of broadcasting, data, video, and audio services to more than 100 million African households as well as the reliable provision of data connectivity in rural areas and emergency situations.
"Azercosmos is proud to continue its delivery of highly reliable satellites services that enable customers to expand their opportunities in Africa," said Mark Guthrie, Chief Commercial Officer of Azercosmos.
