Sudatel showcases the Sudanese success story

Share

MWC 2018 took place after the lifting of American sanctions imposed on Sudan over 20 years. The telco leveraged the show to improve its exposure on the international stage. It signed a big contract with Ericsson.

Sudatel Telecom Group and Liquid Telecom, a subsidiary of Econet Global, also signed a MoU at the show to build new FTTH networks across Sudan. The partnership will increase the broadband capacity and speeds available to homes and businesses in Sudan, which are currently reliant on wireless networks to access the internet.

Emirates Data Clearing House (EDCH), a subsidiary of Etisalat Services Holding, launched a new suite of mobile financial services for Expresso Telecom in Senegal. This is EDCH’s first commercial deployment of Mobile Financial Services on an international level for a mobile network operator. It will be followed by two more deployments in Africa.

“We promise next year we will have a bigger booth, bigger presence and hopefully by then we will have bigger coverage and success stories,” said Eng. Tarig Hamza Zain El Abdein, CEO, Sudatel telecom group. He added that Sudatel is going to sign a contract with Arabsat for new satellite system, and also hopes to have a 5G pilot project in Sudan before the end of this year.
