CETel Beefs Up Their iDirect Network for Africa

CETel is a German provider of global satellite, fiber and wireless enabled communications solutions and the firm is active in the field of fixed and mobile satellite services and they have now expanded their iDirect network over C-band for Africa.

After adding additional capacity, CETel is now using several transponders for their iDirect services via two C-band satellites that cover all of Africa. This upgrade was announced by CETel Managing Director Guido Neumann who stated that CETel expansion has become a crucial operations factor for the firm's clients in the area of oil, gas & mining, corporate and NGO services. The increased bandwidth demand needed for various business applications required managed hub-based solutions to provide dedicated or shared services.
