Global Technologies and Eutelsat modernising Mattel’s Mauritanian network

Global Technologies has acquired C-band capacity on Eutelsat’s 8 West B satellite in order to upgrade the mobile and Internet network of Tunisie Télécom subsidiary Mattel.

The leading mobile operator in Mauritania, Mattel is looking to overhaul its VSAT network in order to deliver improved Internet access and service quality, particularly in areas isolated from terrestrial networks. To implement this, Global Technologies will work in partnership with Eutelsat, from design phase to nationwide deployment of a state-of-the-art solution for Mattel.

Michel Azibert, Eutelsat’s Chief Commercial and Development Officer, said: “This contract positions EUTELSAT 8 West B on the Mauritanian market for the first time. In the future, we would like to replicate the partnership model that has been set up with Global Technologies in Mauritania on other markets.”
