CETel to Provide Fibre-like Connectivity via SES Networks’ MEO Fleet

January 10, 2018 - CETel, a leading German service provider of global managed end-to-end communications solutions, has signed a five-year contract with SES Networks to connect new exploration and production sites in Africa via SES Networks’ medium earth orbit (MEO) O3b satellite constellation. CETel will leverage the O3b fleet’s low latency and high throughput capabilities for big data applications required by the exploration and production industry. With round trip latencies below 150 milliseconds, MEO-enabled networks are on par with standard fibre connections, and are more reliable and faster to deploy than other infrastructure. The inking of this MEO deal with SES Networks empowers CETel to serve new applications where lower-latency connectivity matters, and to complement the comprehensive and versatile business applications it currently serves today.
