UAE’s Yahsat, the Abu Dhabi-headquartered commercial satellite communications operator, has partnered with Tanaza to launch a new enterprise Wi-Fi solution for reliable service in remote areas, further helping to bridge the digital divide in many parts of the world.
Through Yahsat’s subsidiary company YahClick, the YahClick Wi-Fi Enterprise Solution will be offered in partnership with Tanaza, an Italian Wi-Fi cloud management software provider.
Yahsat and Tanaza signed an agreement last week that allows Tanaza’s cloud-based Wi-Fi management platform to be used along with YahClick Wi-Fi Enterprise Solution across YahClick’s footprint.
The Wi-Fi solution aims to provide a cost-effective, high-speed, and reliable Wi-Fi solution developed to address the connectivity requirements of enterprises, non-government organisations (NGOs), governments, and communities across Africa, the Middle East, and Central and Southwest Asia.
The YahClick-Tanaza Wi-Fi solution features a simple multi-user management platform and seamless access for the end user. The solution also promises to drive sustainable socio-economic development by providing reliable high-speed connectivity to remote schools, clinics, and government offices, as well as facilitating humanitarian aid and relief operations.
“In our fast-paced, always-on world, it is crucial that organizations of all kinds perform at peak productivity and therefore receive uninterrupted, high-speed internet connectivity,” said Farhad Khan, Yahsat’s Chief Commercial Officer. “Many of the public and private-sector organizations we serve operate in the remotest parts of the Middle East, Africa, and Central and South West Asia, where high-performance internet connectivity is not readily available. With the launch of YahClick Wi-Fi Enterprise Solution, we look forward to supporting even more users with an internet service they can depend on.”
“We’re excited to see Yahsat using our software to deploy cost-effective high-speed Wi-Fi hotspots,” said Sebastiano Bertani, the Chief Executive Officer of Tanaza. “And we love the idea of contributing to a better world by serving public and private organisations in remote areas with our Wi-Fi cloud management platform. This distribution agreement will create a wide range of new opportunities for socioeconomic development across multiple continents.”
