New lead for satellite communications provision


Following its acquisition by CETel (Central European Telecom Services), the German Teleport & Satellite Service Provider, SeaMobile Europe now operates under its original name Geolink Satellite Services

As an independent entity, Geolink Satellite Services is well-known for its broad product portfolio comprising fix and mobile satellite services based Iridium, Inmarsat and iDirect technology for governmental, corporate and maritime customers.

The company has an excellent reputation in the African region, especially in the French speaking markets. Within these regions, Geolink is a key supplier of satellite-based communications services for NGOs, government institutions, oil and gas, mining companies, media, fishing and offshore racing. With this acquisition, CETel will expand its service portfolio and customer base to consolidate its market position in Europe, Africa and the Middle East as well as in the mobile and maritime business.


Strengthening position

The acquisition allows CETel to combine the expertise of both companies and to provide customers with strong system integration capabilities and best-in-class end-to-end solutions. Furthermore, it will further strengthen their position in the Middle East and African markets.

“We are delighted about this acquisition and are looking forward to extend our core business with integrated end-to-end solutions and state-of-the-art technologies,” said Christophe Pacilly, CEO of Geolink Satellite Services.

The acquisition will represent an expansion of the expertise of two key service providers well established in the European, Middle East and African regions, in an effort to develop and further provide competitive, reliable and quality turnkey satellite solutions.

“With the combined expertise of our two organizations, we expect to deliver significant advances to our customers and the global communications marketplace. In addition, the acquisition and migration of its services with about 1,000 contracted customers into more than 50 countries in Africa, Europe and the Middle East will allow CETel to strengthen its position as a global player in the satellite communications market,” said Guido Neumann, Managing Director and co founder of CETel.
