June 7, 2014

The entrepreneurs and tech specialists that brought you Inveneo have announced the launch of their new for-profit start-up, Volo, that is fast-tracking high-quality broadband Internet access in developing markets.

Volo, built based on years of experience in the field and designed in Silicon Valley, provides a cloud-based automation platform for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) for the deployment of fixed mobile broadband services using radically affordable last-mile Wi-Fi networking technologies.

Volo's vendor-neutral platform addresses the exact issues and needs of ISPs in developing economies making it easy and lucrative for them to deliver and support low-cost super fast Internet access to the next billion users.

Volo investor and telecom entrepreneur Jim Forster, stated : 'Just like any business in North America or Europe, businesses in Africa and other emerging markets want to be profitable, and provide the best products and services to their clients. While much of Africa has some Internet access, what s missing is reliable, fast Internet connections so companies can use the high-bandwidth products that make them more competitive. Volo is enabling ISPs to use radically lower cost technologies to deliver high-speed fixed broadband, especially for small and medium enterprises, complementing mobile broadband for consumers. Higher bandwidth equals higher revenue potential.'

Volo co-founder and CEO Mark Summer, added : 'With Volo, the future of wireless is here. Until recently, building infrastructure was expensive and time-consuming, making it hard for ISPs to scale and leaving businesses in emerging markets stuck with glacially slow connection speeds. Now, Volo is delivering the tools and expertise so that ISPs can deploy broadband services in weeks, maintain lower operational costs and scale more effectively.'
