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 Service Provider 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
Among the latest technologies SatADSL’s C-SDP can connect to is the latest release of
the HTS-optimised 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, 7 November to Thursday, 9
