If Africa is going to grow, its banks need to roll out branches and ATMs across the forbidding terrain. Meeting that challenge is a job for satellite. Q-Kon developed and operates a communications network linking more than 3000 branches and ATMs by satellite. The technology comes from iDirect, the world’s largest provider of enterprise satellite communications. iDirect’s platform offers flexibility and reliability that let Q-Kon start small with just 50 sites, and grow with its customer. The network will eventually cover over 5000 locations.
Without satellite, banks would never be able to tap the opportunity to serve a growing population eager for its share of the world’s plenty.
