Yahsat will take advantage of the Tanaza’s cloud-based software to allow Wi-Fi connections across geographies, with easy management and effortless user access. Commenting on the MoU, Farhad Khan, Yahsat’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We have been looking for a partner that could tap into the elasticity of the cloud to help to make accessing our network leaner. Tanaza will provide us with the technology needed to further enhance our offering and fully align with the needs and preferences of our end-users across the Middle East, Africa, Central and South West Asia.”

“We look forward to working with Yahsat and their partners” declares Sebastiano Bertani, Tanaza CEO. “We envision a world where any person can connect anytime, from anywhere, wirelessly. This partnership with Yahsat is an important step towards the realization of this vision. We are confident the MoU with Yahsat will unlock a full range of new possibilities for the benefit of businesses and individuals, as well.”
