Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom, 2011/02/09 - SkyVision Global Networks Ltd, a leading global provider of IP connectivity over satellite and fiber optic systems, has announced the launch of their new services targeted at the Corporate and Enterprise market in Nigeria.
“With the huge expansion of both national and international corporate activity in the country, there is no question that Nigeria is a strategic market for SkyVision, ” said Mr. Doron Ben Sira, SkyVision CEO. “We are continuing to invest considerable resources in developing our corporate network connectivity solutions for this segment, which is showing steady growth.”
To meet the ever increasing demand by corporate and enterprise customers in Nigeria, SkyVision established a POP and Teleport in Lagos via submarine cables and powerful satellites to improve their connectivity, globally, regionally and domestically.
SkyVision’s POP is connected to its MPLS backbone network that spans 3 continents and enables connectivity from anywhere in the world to Nigeria using multiple STM-1 cables. The company’s comprehensive suite of fiber-based services includes SkyVision Internet Transit, SkyVision IP-VPN and SkyVision EVPL.

The new local hub in Lagos enables SkyVision to provide low-latency solutions, to connect corporate headquarters to the hub by terrestrial link and thus ensure optimal functionality of enterprise applications.
