Jean-Luc Vuillemin, Director of International Networks and Services at Orange, said: “I am delighted with this new collaboration with Intelsat, which enables 4G to be deployed in 5 new regions of French Guiana. This association, led by our experts in international networks and services from Orange, demonstrates the complementarity that satellite communication technologies bring to our network and, therefore, contributes to promoting digital equality in all Orange territories. Our satellite experts provide their monitoring expertise and necessary technical support to Orange Guyane teams from our Bercenay-en-Othe teleport. “
The implementation of this project, in the midst of a pandemic, required the use of exceptional logistical resources and international collaboration with Orange partners, for more than a year.
Thierry Kergall, Director of Orange Antilles-Guyana, praises “the excellent work of the teams that put this project to the test at the local level. Once again, they demonstrate our experience, our sense of leadership and technological innovation at the service of the population and the development of the territory ”.
