Arabsat, CETel partner for new extended C-band services

Co-operation will see deployment of additional 9.3m antenna at CETel’s teleport

Arabsat and CETel Group have agreed to further co-operation, a move that will enable CETel to expand its existing solutions portfolio by providing new services on Arabsat‐5C in extended C band.

Jointly, Arabsat and CETel will deploy an additional 9.3m antenna at the CETel teleport facilities near Cologne/Bonn, which are pointed towards Arabsat 5C at 20 degrees East. The infrastructure expansion will enable CETel to provide additional individual solutions that meet high demands for cost-effective pricing, reliability and bandwidth.

This co-operation for new services is part of Arabsat’s and CETel’s long‐standing partnership to provide solutions for satellite‐based communications worldwide.

“We are proud to once again partner with Arabsat to extend our portfolio. The increasing demand for satellite capacity and internet connectivity with high bandwidths, not only in the Middle East but also in Africa, clearly shows the need for cost‐effective communications solutions. CETel is able to provide such solutions worldwide and the new services on Arabsat 5C in extended C band fit perfectly for our customers,” says Martin Terlunen, Managing Director of CETel Germany.

Khalid Balkhyour, President and CEO of Arabsat, adds: “CETel is a trusted and distinguished partner for Arabsat. This is why we decided to co-operate with them to increase our global presence with services on extended C band. Our customers trust CETel’s experience and value their high-quality services and solutions.”
