Sudan's Sudatel has helped put a satellite in space.

Sudatel, through one of its companies Sudasat and Hajar Group, and in partnership with Canar Telecom, helped to put the Arabsat 6A satellite into orbit. The satellite will allow Sudatel-owned Sudasat to provide broadband communications and broadband services across Sudan to Internet providers, VSAT subscribers and mobile network operators. It also provides multi-purpose solutions for commercial and government sectors.

The satellite was launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida. The launch was witnessed by Sudatel CEO Eng. Tarig Hamza Zain Elabdein, who is also the chair of the board of directors at Sudasat. Of the launch, he said: "This move marks a milestone in the company's history and confirms its strategic plan to move the company to an integrated telecommunications operator to deliver unprecedented services through partnerships, upgrading it from the local and regional level to a much higher level. This move will be the first step in the process of launching a satellite for Sudan in which Sudatel will play a pivotal role through its foreign strategic partnerships."

Arabsat president and CEO Khalid Bin Ahmed Balkheyour pointed out that the increasing demand for satellite telecommunication services in the region requires cooperation.
