Central European Telecom Services (CETel), the German provider of satellite, fibre and wireless enabled communications solutions is delivering connectivity in remote areas of northern Africa via Intelsat’s EPIC 37e satellite.
The land-locked areas of Chad and south of Libya have little or no terrestrial connectivity and require stable, reliable and efficient solutions for their data and voice transmissions.
Intelsat’s fifth next-generation HTS (high throughput satellite) delivers a Ku-band spotbeam to this region that CETel uses to serve its customer base spanning various market verticals.
“Our global operating customers rely on our high-quality service solutions that allow them to maintain operations even in harsh geographic and socio-economic environments. At the same time, communications can be utilized to have a positive impact on the local community and therewith our solutions often also play an integral role in our customer’s CSR-policies,” said Guido Neumann, CEO of CETel.
CETel said it plans to migrate and activate initially 200 VSAT-sites into this new established network within the next six months.
Services being delivered include a hub-based solution, leveraging low investment costs at the remote sites.
The coverage enables cost-effective network solutions with low-cost terminals for this region.
