AFRICON – PIVOTEL Collaboration


We are happy to announce our new collaboration in the telecommunications sector with Pivotel .

Pivotel is Australian owned and operated with unrivalled expertise in remote communications, supporting more than 80,000 Australians and New Zealanders who travel or operate outside of mobile coverage.

Pivotel is the only mobile carrier in Australia focused on mobile satellite services, providing reliable and secure satellite and cellular communication solutions.

As a licensed carrier, Pivotel is fully compliant with all Australian and New Zealand regulatory obligations.

Pivotel maintains a mobile carrier license and operates ground infrastructure in Australia, making it the fourth largest mobile carrier in the country. It is the only Australian carrier with direct connection to all four major mobile satellite networks: Iridium, Inmarsat, Thuraya and Globalstar. Pivotel is a registered satellite service provider in New Zealand.

The company’s suite of satellite and mobile technologies enable remote connectivity via satellite phones, satellite data modems, personnel and asset trackers, docking kits, machine to machine data terminals and specialist maritime communication.

Pivotel Group’s 4G mobile network, EcoSphere®, extends its carrier network to deliver complementary terrestrial wireless services to rural and remote Australians.

The partnership plans to enhance Pivotel’s global land and maritime telecommunications sales and solutions, building upon AFRICON’s (AFRICON Telecom, ARCOM, ITHAX S.A.) extensive presence and experience in the sector since 1998.
