Pakistani satellite communications systems integrator Supernet has signed an agreement with SatADSL allowing it to use the latter’s neXat platform.
neXat is a cloud-based, complete OSS/BSS that will allow Supernet to extend the reach of its services as well as sell and buy excess and/or unused capacity in the international market. With its offering previously restricted to Pakistan, Supernet can use neXat’s eMarketplace to expand its business globally, buying and selling managed capacity outside of its existing coverage zones. The partnership will also enable SatADSL to offer Ku-band services in the South Asia region.
Head of Business Unit Telecoms & Defence at Supernet Ali Akhtar said: “With the expertise and experience that we have, it is past due that we make a serious effort to expanding our presence internationally. With neXat we see a viable path to achieving this.”
Senior Vice President - APAC at SatADSL Rajeev Nair said: “We are continuously looking to add service providers to our platform in every key global market. Having Supernet – the premier satcom service provider in Pakistan - onboard with us is a step in that direction. neXat, our cloud-based platform, will enable Supernet to offer VSAT services globally and expand their business. The platform simplifies the sales process for service providers and helps the infrastructure owners faster monetise their investment.”
