Liquid Intelligent Technologies, a pan-African technology group, announced a distribution partner agreement (DPA) with Eutelsat Group

This partnership will bring enterprise-grade Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite services to Africa. Eutelsat Group, as the world’s first satellite operator with an integrated GEO-LEO infrastructure, is a key collaborator in this endeavor.

“Liquid has always been committed to technological innovation in Africa,” said Ahmed El Beheiry, CEO of Liquid Intelligent Technologies. “Our collaboration with Eutelsat signifies a milestone in bringing cutting-edge LEO services to our customers across multiple countries in Africa, empowering them with high-speed solutions and unlocking new possibilities for connectivity.”

“We are thrilled to work with Liquid to introduce new connectivity services throughout Africa. Liquid has a proven track record and a longstanding commitment to connect African businesses. Working together and leveraging Eutelsat Group’s innovative LEO services, we can unlock new opportunities for enterprises and communities. We look forward to the positive impacts we can have to help Liquid’s customers flourish, especially in the mining industry in Central Africa,” said Philippe Baudrier, vice-president Connectivity, Africa.

The integration of the OneWeb LEO satellite network by Liquid Dataport is strategic. It not only delivers low-latency satellite services but also introduces a network interconnect, enabling seamless integration across LEO satellite access and Liquid Dataport core network infrastructure.

The OneWeb LEO satellites represent a paradigm shift in satellite technology. They offer lower latency, faster orbital periods, and higher bandwidth. For Liquid Dataport’s customers, this translates to enhanced performance for cloud computing, video conferencing, real-time applications, and more. Additionally, Liquid Dataport’s LEO services include enterprise access with Internet breakout and Point-to-Point services, providing versatile solutions for diverse business needs.

Beyond technical advantages, Liquid Dataport’s expanded reach enhances customer experience, positioning it as a preferred one-stop shop for connectivity and related services.

As Eutelsat’s OneWeb network coverage matures, Liquid Dataport plans systematic service expansion. This aligns with the growing demand for low-latency primary and backup services in remote African regions, benefiting businesses across various industries. The strategic move anticipates the surge in new LEO satellite constellations over the next three years, offering agile and cost-effective solutions for market entry and expansion.

For Liquid Intelligent Technologies, this collaboration with Eutelsat extends beyond services—it’s about launching opportunities that foster progress and innovation across the African continent.
