Arabsat and CETel spread coverage across Africa
CETel and satellite operator ARABSAT are stepping into the extended C-band with their jointly built earth station, offering unprecedented business expansion possibilities with the launch of teleport facilities, network and broadband services as well as solution design across the whole African continent, Middle East, Europe and Central Asia on board ARABSATs state-of-the-art satellite Arabsat-5C on 20 degrees East.
Arabsat & CETel strategic plan to expand into the extended C-band is driven by the need of cost effective communications solutions in rural areas which offers not only trunking and backhauling applications but also corporate network connectivity between the regions and continents.
With the extended C-band being now available, CETel and Arabsat have complemented their existing service-proven portfolio of satellite enabled communications solutions. For the customer it opens the door to achieve the optimal mix of the different bands to his specific and individual requirements over Africa in order to run his communications smoothly and supporting their businesses.
