|R*Broadband Connectivity Services|
What is the R*BCS
The R*Broadband Connectivity Services provide high capacity telephony and IP connections between telecommunication operators within the continent for panafrican connectivity using R*BCS gateways located anywhere within the RASCOM-QAF satellite footprint (the whole African continent).
African operators are able to extend the reach of their infrastructure on a national and international.
How does the service work
R*BCS gateways are implemented in African countries to interconnect national terrestrial infrastructure networks (telephony and IP) via the RASCOM-QAF satellite. The service provides full mesh connectivity between gateways where telephony and IP connections are set up dynamically according to the instantaneous traffic requirements.
Gateways may share the same radio equipment as an R*TES gateway resulting in cost savings
