CETel and Arabsat's Business Continuity Services Safeguard Security, Redundancy and Back-Up

Arabsat and CETel's long-time relationship enabled them to develop a product for companies to safeguard their existing networks for redundancy, back-up and security needs. They realized that Big Data and permanent connectivity requirements made service availability the basis of every operation and that no organization wants to rely on a single string when it comes to connectivity and communications.

Additionally, historical voice and data applications, communications for Machine to Machine (M2M), Internet of Things (IoT) or Critical Applications is becoming more crucial for the customer’s network infrastructure; and the complexity of global communications networks makes the service critical.

Offering Business Continuity Services that include back-up requirements for each customer and are also cost-efficient are the major issues. Customers select from a variety of service levels, depending on their individual back-up needs. Often, the service includes periods of free-usage. The service is initially offered on, but not limited to, the ARABSAT-5C satellite, located at 20 degrees East. 

Unlike traditional back-up links, this new product provides services at predetermined levels that are greatly reduced compared to the usual service investment.

Guido Neumann, Managing Director at CETel said that they are thrilled to include such an important service into their product and services portfolio. The requests for the provision of reliable and cost effective back-up services are permanently growing. This innovative service enables their customers to enhance their network and connectivity performance, also supporting them to further expand and secure their core businesses. He added that teaming up with Arabsat they are able to offer such a service. In their long-standing and fruitful partnership with Arabsat they have found the perfect fit for this growing and essential demand. 

Khalid Balkheyour, President and CEO at Arabsat said that CETel has been their long entrusted and distinguished partner. Arabsat and CETel have always strived to provide high-quality satellite based solutions to their customers. With the ever growing requirements of permanent connectivity, the Business Continuity Solution will increase their customers’ confidence in the services provided by CETel.

CETel and Arabsat are promoting their new Business Continuity Services during the forthcoming Cabsat in Dubai, from January 14 to 16 in the Dubai World Trade Centre.
