Telecommunications services provider Quantis is working to connect 4,000 schools in Morocco. The company, which provides Internet, voice, data and satellite TV services, signed a deal this September with satellite equipment manufacturer Newtec for the Dialog multiservice platform. The Dialog hub will complement Quantis’ existing satellite infrastructure and enable Nortis, the company’s subsidiary based in Morocco, to deliver satellite broadband services.
Nortis was awarded this contract by the Morocco Ministry of Education as part of the GENIE project. The service will provide Internet access for students, while teachers will be able to provide courses through distance learning.
