In addition to DHI opening new offices in the Cologne/Bonn area of Germany, CETel will be establishing their new US headquarters in Houston, as the two telecommunications providers embark upon a truly integrated partnership. CETel was named the fastest growing teleport company in Germany, and third worldwide according to the World Teleport Association.
“Operating for years in combat zones has taught us a lot,” says Heath Irlbeck, Senior VP of Global Services at DHI. “Our team faces the hazards of war, treks to extremely remote locations, and commissions service through complex platforms in some of the most exposed areas, bringing the freedom and power of communication to those who otherwise would be isolated or completely cut off. The partnership with CETel Group marks the beginning of exponential international growth for DHI and the expansion of our role as a telecommunications forerunner.”
Part of what makes DHI unique as a satellite provider is that the group also designs and installs terrestrial fiber optic networks. These customized solutions give clients (such as military bases and businesses in the volatile Middle Eastern and African regions) dependable connectivity and higher download speeds. Because DHI owns their own teleport, they offer unprecedented agility, capacity, and capabilities to underdeveloped regions. The capabilities this new CETel partnership brings will enable DHI to leverage proprietary systems and inter-operational ability to provide smarter, sleeker solutions, and ensure faster, more reliable connections.
