CETel is set to deliver fibre-like connectivity into Africa via the medium earth orbit (MEO) satellite constellation O3b.
The long-term contract supports a leading African-wide operating communications and technology solutions provider to further expand their network across Africa. It will serve various vertical markets, such as mining, corporate, construction, telco/ICT and government.
Low-latency paired and maximum availability were key drivers in the decision for the MEO solution. After connecting multiple sites, CETel will further expand its operational MEO coverage that now spans the African continent.
Guido Neumann, Managing Director of CETel, said, “It is mandatory that GEO, MEO or Fibre solutions must be evaluated in case-by-case scenarios. We still see an increasing demand for all available and upcoming communications solutions with all their different characteristics and advantages.”
CETel will continue to work towards a connected world providing global hybrid networks consisting of GEO, MEO, Fibre-Architectures, to cater for the ever-growing demand for data and connectivity solutions.
