PRESS RELEASE -- SatADSL, a provider of professional VSAT services via satellite has joined forces with CETel – a leading provider of global satellite, fiber and wireless-enabled communications solutions – to deliver an expanded range of services in Ku- and C-band across Africa and the Middle East.

Under the agreement, SatADSL will provide CETel with its innovative Cloud-based Service Delivery Platform (C-SDP), a complete OSS/BSS carrier-grade, fully redundant platform.

Guido Neumann, Managing Director of CETel, said: “We’re excited to complement our product and services portfolio with volume-based vouchers and flexible, cost-effective VNO services, as this will enable us to keep costs low and service quality high. The demand for these services is growing in Africa and thanks to SatADSL’s solutions, we can guarantee access to reliable and constant connectivity via satellite across a range of industries.”
