SatADSL launches Cloud-based satellite delivery platform in Africa




SatADSL, a provider of professional VSAT services via satellite, has announced the availability of the industry’s first multi-hubs Cloud-based satellite delivery platform (C-SDP), with C-, Ku- and Ka-band capability.

The firm has also revealed plans to launch new Ka-band services in South Africa and Zimbabwe in the first quarter of 2018 to complement its current Ku- and C-Band services. These will be extended to the rest of the African continent in the middle of 2018.

Through SatADSL’s C-SDP, a complete OSS/BSS, carrier-grade, fully redundant platform, telcos and service providers can, for the first time, offer, via the cloud, satellite services over any frequency band. It includes a Network Management System which allows IP traffic to be shaped and routed from and to different hubs, while the built-in customer management tool allows telcos and service providers to manage and monitor their own customers. A Hotspot Management System lets remote hotspot networks be configured, managed and monitored and a Billing System enables online payments and automatic billing.

“The C-SDP is truly a unique solution and has been launched in direct response to market demand,” said Caroline De Vos, Chief Operations Officer and Founder of SatADSL. “While it is predominantly aimed at Service Providers, we also plan to allow other operators to access the C-SDP, giving them the ability to control multiple technologies on different satellites, all from one single management tool. We also plan to evolve the platform further as the satellite landscape continues to change and develop.”

Among the latest technologies SatADSL’s C-SDP can connect to is the latest release of the HTS-optimized Newtec Dialog multiservice platform. This is enabling the launch of SatADSL’s innovative Ka band services in South Africa and Zimbabwe next year.

“As a manufacturer of innovative satellite hub systems, we believe that SatADSL, including its OSS/BSS platform, delivers a very good complement to our product offering,” said Jo De Loor, Market Director for HTS and Enterprise at Newtec. “The C-SDP and the capabilities it brings to telcos and service providers is a natural fit for our Newtec Dialog customers, enabling them to extend their market reach.”

SatADSL will showcase the advantages its C-SDP can bring to Telcos and Service Providers, along with its other connectivity offerings, at stand D71 at AfricaCom 2017, which takes place at CTICC in Cape Town from Tuesday, November 7 to Thursday, November 9.
