BringCom has been awarded a new contract and several contract extensions by prime U.S. Government contractors. The awards, collectively valued at $3.8 million, call for BringCom to provide satellite and fiber optic circuit services to U.S. Department of Defense-related projects operating in Africa, the Middle East and the Caribbean/Latin America regions.

The satellite contracts utilize BringCom’s teleport facilities in Djibouti City, Republic of Djibouti, and Sterling, Virginia, USA, with connectivity through the Apstar 7 and Amazonas 2 satellites. BringCom will also provide managed fiber-optic connectivity from Africa and the United States to customer-designated termination points under these contracts.

“These new or extended contracts reinforce BringCom’s position as the reliable provider of carrier-grade fiber-optic and satellite services to U.S. Government prime contractors and international customers operating in these global telecommunications markets,” said Fabrice Langreney, President and CEO of BringCom. “The awards of additional contracts from international customers with demanding requirements validate BringCom’s strategy and investment in these regions. They are also a reflection of the dedication of BringCom’s staff and partners in meeting and exceeding the needs of its customers with very challenging telecommunication applications.”

The contracts utilize BringCom’s extensive local partnerships in the Africa and Middle Eastern regions. They include connectivity, construction of in-country facilities, and continuing maintenance activities by BringCom’s satellite and fiber network-capable Network Operations Centers (NOC) in both the United States and Djibouti.
