DIGITAL EDUCATION, A KEY TO PROGRESS IN AFRICA

The Moroccan Government is aware of the significance of being able to access the Internet at school and, therefore, has decided to approach the circumstance in an innovative way. By making use of Eurona's satellite broadband, more than half a million kids and teachers have access to digital education in Morocco. An approach that Benin - a country of 10.5 million inhabitants - has decided to take as well, as plenty of schools can already access the Internet too.

Nevertheless, Eurona has faced its largest public project and committed to the region's development by connecting schools to the Internet. The Internet is like an open book: a tool to train and to inform the general public and, ultimately, to improve education's quality, which is key to progress and development in countries in North Africa. Under these conditions, Eurona has connected almost 5,000 Moroccan schools in rural areas by satellite, and 300 in Benin. Additionally, the company has recently opened a new office in Senegal, aiming to improve the quality of life of a country with a population of over 15,5 million people.

Furthermore, to shorten the social gap within connected and non-connected citizens in a world where connectivity is a vital tool for education and economic development, Eurona - which is the only company with a VSAT license in Morocco - offers satellite communication global solutions to homes, businesses, security

TELEMEDICINE, SYNONYM WITH QUALITY OF LIFE IN AFRICA

Telemedicine has become a vital tool for all those people who live in rural and remote areas, where the health resources are scarce or they or hundreds of kilometers away. So, if patients cannot visit health centers regularly, now the professionals will be able to connect via Internet with them.

And Eurona, committed to its policy of universalizing the Internet and boosting progress and development in Africa – a continent where it is already present, bringing the connection to schools in Morocco and Benin- is aware of this and has become a pioneer company in bringing medical services remotely by satellite technology in the region of la Oriental in Morocco.

To make this possible, Eurona has launched a technological platform that interconnects all the parties involved, from the hospital to the mobile unit that runs through the territory, passing through the cadre of medical professionals who, thanks to the information technologies applied to the field of health, they can already maintain a direct and visual communication path for the diagnosis of patients, determining the appropriate treatment or acting quickly in case of emergency.

In this way, the habitants of these areas can now be attended by medical specialists in such vital disciplines as cardiology, pneumology, ophthalmology, otorhinolaryngology or dermatology or echography service.

For the medical professionals who are at the forefront of these consultations “this project, which for sure will be extended to other regions and other countries of the continent, is an immediate benefit for the population. As it directly contributes to improving their quality of life and is also a way to universalize medicine”.

MONASTERY OF SANT JERONI DE LA MURTRA IN BADALONA

In the natural environment of the Sierra de la Mariana, in the municipality of Santa Coloma de Gramenet in Badalona (Barcelona), is the Monastery of Sant Jeroni de la Murtra, an old building of the Hieronymite Order built in Gothic style in the early 15th century.

Despite the owners' scepticism about the possibility of having Internet in a monastery dating back to 1141, the monastery and the caretakers' house have, since 2019, a WiFi satellite network, custom-designed by Eurona, inside the building, the network is connected to a professional IP service that is managed remotely from Madrid to resolve incidents. To preserve the architectural and cultural richness of the monastery, Eurona's antennas were placed camouflaged in the landscape.

THE COMPETITIVE EXAMINATIONS OF VERONICA IN MÁS DEL OLMO (VALENCIA)

Verónica Blasco is a 35-year-old girl who lives in the village of Más del Olmo, a village of just 9 inhabitants in the province of Valencia that spends long periods isolated due to the scarcity of telecommunications infrastructure. A problem that Verónica has already solved with Eurona's satellite broadband Internet connection, which has allowed her, among other things, to prepare and pass her forestry engineer and occupational risk prevention technician examinations, combining them with her work in the Forestry Brigade.

Thanks to Eurona's satellite Internet connection, Verónica has been able to study via videoconference from her village and have access to all the documentation and training content that her teachers shared with her. "If the satellite were more present, the people who refuse to leave the villages would have similar opportunities as the people who live in urban centres", says Verónica.

THE MUNICIPALITY OF MAGAÑA

The municipality of Magaña in Soria was the first town in getting Internet via satellite, after winning the #enREDatupueblo competition. A pilot project, promoted by Eurona and Hispasat, which gave free connection for a year to businesses, institutions and homes, significantly improving their quality of life. After this time, 70% of households that had access to the Internet, decided to continue trusting Eurona, which finally ended up with the barriers of the digital divide in this small town of Soria. "Although at first there were misgivings about the real need for the Internet in the locality, now we can not live without it. We are delighted, "says Fernando Marín, mayor of Magaña.

On the same way, Jesús Alonso, owner of a estate in the country located between the towns of Cubo de la Solana and Almazan in Soria, contacted with Eurona to install Internet via satellite. He spent long seasons on this estate and without the Internet, they turned quite lonely and sometimes even dangerous. “There is no easy to stay on the country without connection. Some years ago, when I didn’t have connection, I should have moved two or three kilometers from here to be able to contact them in case of emergency. Now I have finally the connection at my fingertips”.

THE RURAL HOUSE OF ARICO (TENERIFE)

Likewise, the owners of the house Rural Las Vigas, located in the municipality of Arico, on the island of Tenerife, also contracted the satellite broadband Internet solution to eliminate the connection problems suffered by their Low speed and aware that a good connection is as important as a good bed and that there is not a complete travel experience without quality internet.

CONEXIÓN PARA TURISTAS QUE UNE VIDAS Y ACERCA FAMILIAS

Sorry, this entry is only available in European Spanish.

España es la segunda potencia turística mundial por llegadas turísticas. Se calcula que alrededor de un millón de turistas de larga estancia visitan nuestro país cada año –el 70% concentrado en las islas, Andalucía y Levante-, con la peculiaridad de que un buen número de ellos establece aquí su segunda residencia una vez se jubila.

Para que se sientan como en casa, Eurona sabe que las telecomunicaciones son imprescindibles y, por ello, se posiciona como el operador de referencia para estos visitantes. Porque gracias a una conexión a Internet de calidad o a las llamadas a sus familiares al otro lado de la frontera a un precio competetivo, los turistas de larga estancia pueden ver cómo crecen sus nietos a través de las videollamadas, pueden contactar con cualquier familiar cualquier día y a cualquier hora, navegar por las redes sociales o incluso ver sus propios canales de televisión a cientos de kilómetros de distancia.

Por tanto, Eurona proporciona a estas miles de personas el ‘pasaporte’ imprescindible para poder llevar una vida foránea fuera de su lugar de origen, pero sin renunciar al contacto permanente con su familia, sus amigos y su propia cultura.

Y así lo viven también nuestros clientes. El estadounidense jubilado y afincado en Málaga, Connor Wells, comenta que sería impensable para él vivir en España si no tuviera contacto continuo con su familia: “Yo puedo vivir en España con mi esposa porque tenemos contacto directo con nuestros hijos diariamente, además con nuestros servicios hasta podemos ver desde Málaga el programa de Ellen Degeneres, nuestro favorito.”

INTERNET A BORDO, OTRA FORMA DE NAVEGAR EN EL MAR

Sorry, this entry is only available in European Spanish.

Eurona ha consolidado su posición como operador satélite de referencia al entender que la revolución de Internet en los medios de transporte es imparable. Ofrece conexión de banda ancha en movilidad a todo tipo de embarcaciones y permite que tanto el pasaje como la tripulación puedan chatear vía Whatsapp, hablar por skype con sus familiares y amigos, recibir vídeos de sus hijos o nietos e incluso votar telemáticamente en un contexto donde ya no hay ‘tiempos muertos’ y el usuario pasa conectado las 24 horas del día los 7 días de la semana. Con todo, Eurona permite a todos ellos seguir con su ‘vida en tierra’ en alta mar, a pesar de encontrarse a cientos de kilómetros de ella.

La multinacional de telecomunicaciones, gracias al satélite,  que en la actualidad es la única tecnología inmediata, viable y capaz de ofrecer conexión en cualquier lugar, incluso en movilidad, es capaz de conectar los mares y dotar de conectividad a ferris de pasajeros, buques mercantes, yates, pesqueros e incluso a embarcaciones que realizan labores de salvamento marítimo en el Mediterráneo.

Precisamente, Eurona es el operador de referencia en dos de las mayores navieras europeas como son Balèaria y la Naviera Armas para los que presta comunicaciones vía satélite y servicios de voz y datos para la tripulación. Además, ofrece soluciones específicas a pesqueros o barcos de faena y dispone de conexiones de gran ancho de banda a diversos yates que navegan por el Mediterráneo como el ‘My Maybe’, el mayor yate construido en España.

Con este servicio, Eurona democratiza el acceso a internet dentro del sector marítimo y de la pesca. Y es que mientras que el 100% de yates y petroleros ya disfrutan de la tecnología VSAT, sólo entre el 10 y el 20% de los pesqueros españoles dispone de una conexión integral a la red que permita potenciar la gestión marítima del barco y garantizar a la tripulación la comunicación con su familia y con la vida que deja en tierra, según datos de Eurona.

María Salgado, pasajera habitual de uno de los ferries conectados en el Mediterráneo, asegura que ya no entiende sus trayectos sin poder enviar un Whatsapp o poder acceder a su e-mail mientras está en el barco: “Las comunicaciones han cambiado y no concibo la idea de no poder trabajar, ni acceder a mi correo electrónico mientras viajo. Es parte de mi día a día.”
