Digital
and Shared services Infrastructure provider of the federal government, Galaxy
Backbone has disclosed how local partnerships have helped it to expand its
space segment and satellite services across the country, especially to Government
Ministries, Departments and Agencies.





In
a statement sent to Journalists via email, Galaxy Backbone noted that, the
service, which is being provided on its 1GOV.ng platform with fibre, is the preferred
mode of connection. But, in locations where there are no fibre or terrestrial
networks, satellite capacity is used.  





Thus,
it has done through the satellite capacity required  from its sister agency, NIGCOMSAT, stressing
that this has given the federal government the opportunity to enjoy the
benefits of economies of scale and encourage local partnerships.





Also, in promoting
government's vision around Data sovereignty and ensuring that data generated
within the country, stays within the nation, Galaxy Backbone (GBB) provides
secure hosting services through its Tier III Datacentre located at the federal
Capital Territory.





 Through our Tier III
Datacentre infrastructure, the nation's sensitive data are kept secure. Galaxy
Backbone is also the only hosting company with an in-country Data Recovery
Centre situated in Enugu.  The company will
continue to improve its services, champion government's efforts at improving
digital services and data protection across the nation by collaborating and
working closely with public and private institutions,   the statement signed by
Chidi Okpala, Marketing
Manager at Galaxy Backbone assured.





For over 12 years, this
organisation of government has continued to strive towards living its mission
being, to drive national development through the provision of pervasive ICT
Infrastructure and services to public institutions, underserved communities and
other stakeholders. This mission propels the day to day running of the organization
and how it interacts with local institutions, communities and other
stakeholders.





Prior to the existence
of Galaxy Backbone (GBB), the provision of technology infrastructure services
within public institutions existed in silos and created a lot of duplicity of
government services and greatly increased government expense on ICT services.
That experience is history now as over 95percent of these government
establishments now operate under the Galaxy Backbone shared services platform which
is secure, less capital intensive and provides a world class service experience
to the federal government institutions on its platform.





Now, as technology has
grown globally and locally in the last ten years, the government continues to
invest in ensuring that the required infrastructure needed to ensure that the
network and communications amongst government agencies and between government
and its citizens is enhanced. As Galaxy Backbone continues to lay fibre optics
across the nation, leveraging on the government's investment in the National
ICT Technology Infrastructure Backbone project, connectivity and broadband services
will continue to expand for the consumption of the citizens. The vision to
ensure that local and underserved communities are catered for in areas where
fiber cannot reach, will be taken care of via Satellite services. So, in 2015,
GBB, seeing the growth, development and government's investment in Satellite
services to address these communities through the Nigerian Communications
Satellite limited (NIGCOMSAT), severed its relationship with previous foreign
partners, to focus completely on leveraging NIGCOMSAT services to serve this
class of customers. This has made Galaxy Backbone one of the largest consumers
of Nigcomsat satellite capacity.
