SkyVision to provide BOA Burkina Faso with a full communication solution

SkyVision Global Networks has won the national bid to provide Bank of Africa (BOA) Burkina Faso with a full communication solution through the SkyVision VPN service, connecting BOA headquarters in Ouagadougou to its other branches throughout the country.
"In Africa, and in particular, Burkina Faso, reliable communications is mandatory to our business and one of our highest priorities. It is for this reason that we turned to SkyVision to deliver the most trustworthy and efficient connectivity solution on the market to ensure our daily operations run smoothly and securely. We have every confidence in their ability to meet and exceed our needs and to partner with us into the second phase of this important project." said Toni Sebastien, CEO of BOA Burkina Faso.

The combined solution included a Romantis UHP hub and SkyVision VPN, a VSAT-based communications solution that provides organisations with superior network performance and reliability. The advanced technology that drives SkyVision VPN provides customers with enhanced flexibility, enabling reliable control and system management across immense remote areas, such as those in Burkina Faso. Fully deployed and managed by SkyVision, SkyVision VPN is reportedly delivering superior connectivity at a minimum cost.

BOA headquarters in Ouagadougou will host the Romantis hub, which will in turn converge to the remote sites (BOA branches) and operate in a fully autonomous environment dedicated solely to BOA sites. This allows them to connect their remote branch offices and quickly and efficiently, share information by means of voice and data applications, with no investment in additional infrastructure. Combined, the end-to-end solution meets BOA's communications' needs, including a full disaster recovery plan.

General Manager of SkyVision Burkina Faso, Pascal Vokouma says, "We have been awarded a tremendous opportunity to serve the financial industry in Burkina Faso and intend to continue to provide BOA with the utmost quality of service and customer support. We view the financial industry as a strategic market and highly value our partnership with BOA and the trust it has put into the company and its solutions."
