A partnership between a European company based in Brussels and a national telecommunications provider in Cameroon, Africa will be providing satellite connectivity across Cameroon. SatADSL, a provider of professional VSAT services via satellite, and Camtel, Cameroon’s national telecommunications provider, announced the formal agreement that follows a pilot launch of SatADSL’s range of competitive satellite connectivity solutions across a variety of public and private enterprises and communities in Cameroon, including schools, post offices, hospitals and banks.
SatADSL now plans to integrate and deploy its VSAT services across the central African country, enabling Camtel to offer competitive broadband packages to even the most rural areas. Under the agreement, SatADSL will fulfil all of Camtel’s satellite connectivity requirements across all frequency ranges, Ku-, Ka- and C-band.
Camtel is the latest telecommunication operator in Africa to deploy SatADSL’s services which are offered through the unique Cloud-based Service Delivery Platform (C-SDP). The complete OSS/BSS, carrier-grade, fully redundant platform allows operators to easily outsource satellite services, reducing the cost of providing ubiquitous connectivity by enabling fast, flexible and future-proof satellite connectivity via the cloud for the first time, eliminating the need for physical infrastructure.
David Nkoto Emane, CEO at Camtel said that they chose to partner with SatADSL because its solutions will enable them to target the widest possible spectrum of end-users, meaning the broadband services will truly benefit entire communities. SatADSL’s knowledge of the region and technical expertise played a big role in the pilot’s success and we look forward to extending the project.
Co-founder and Chief Operations Officer at SatADSL Caroline De Vos said that as an organization that strives to bridge the digital divide in Africa, they are delighted to partner with Camtel to blanket Cameroon with much-needed connectivity. Their innovative C-SDP also means Camtel will be able to offer highly competitive packages for a range of end-users.
