Project Brief – RASCOM


RASCOM is a multilateral organization created in May 1992, which now comprises 45 African States. The RASCOM project will construct and operate an earth-orbiting satellite system to provide point to multi-point telecommunications services throughout Africa. The satellite system is designed to offer three primary service types. The Integrated Communications Service (ICS) provides two of these services: the Rural Telephony Service (TES) and the Thin Route Trunking Service (TRS). The third Service is the Bandwidth Lease Service (BLS)
