Keeping South Africa’s Lights On

Located in rural areas of the Western Cape, TerniEnergia’s photovoltaic solar energy plants required a secure and reliable internet connection for their operations. TerniEnergia, an Italian-based renewable and energy efficiency company, has developed two plants in rural South Africa. To facilitate the construction and operation of the plants, a reliable and secure internet connection was required. However, due to the remote locations of the sites, limited network infrastructure made this challenging. TerniEnergia partnered with Avanti Communications to provide reliable and secure high speed satellite broadband connectivity to its photovoltaic renewable energy plants. Avanti’s Ka-band technology supports Virtual Private Networks (VPN), ensuring IP traffic remains secure and encrypted from end-to-end.

With 100% coverage of South Africa, Avanti’s HYLAS 2 satellite provided the high speed downlink and uplink connection vital for TerniEnergia to support their operations and remote reporting.
