CETel has signed a substantial lease contract for satellite capacity with its strategic partner SES Networks. The capacity is secured on the recently launched satellite SES-12, which is one of the largest geostationary satellites that SES has procured. The satellite carries six wide beams and 72 high-throughput spotbeams serving regions from the Middle East to the Asia-Pacific.
"We committed to this capacity to assure that our customers benefit from powerful and reliable satellite communications," explained CETel's Managing Director, Guido Neumann. "The demand for encompassing connectivity solutions, especially in the Middle East is tending upwards. Securing this capacity is key to our business, particularly for the oil & gas and mining sectors. Automation and digitalization in these industries feed the demand for data transmission and CETel is best prepared to deliver broadband-like connectivity to even the harshest and remotest environments to fuel ERP and thus improve operational results."
The coverage reaches from Cyprus in the West to Japan in the East, and South to Australia and North to Russia. Its excellent coverage enables CETel to provide optimized solutions from its own communications hub located in the UAE.
